When I was younger I thought it was weird when couples with kids called each other "mom" and "dad". Now I find myself doing it. It's still weird, isn't it?

  • I always thought it was super weird, but now I'm finding that my husband and I do it, too. Fortunately we only do it when we're either around the kids, are talking about the kids. When we go out on "date nights" and things like that, we don't... thank goodness.

  • I always say "go ask Daddy" or Daddy's on the phone etc. I don't find it weird. I don't call him Daddy when I'm talking to him though lol only when I'm talking for my son.

  • Oh, I am in the same boat as you. My husband doesn't do it, but I very guilty of it! And it feels good to say it . . I don't know why.

  • I do it all the time, myself, but only when my daughter's around. I'm trying to stop, because I would have made fun of anyone who did it before I started doing it myself.

  • No, not weird. DH and I have called each other mom and dad for years.

  • Ha we don't do that but i always thought it was odd. Mostly when they said daddy which sounded more naughty than anything.

  • I've always thought it was weird so I never did it. Some couples do it so their children don't call them by their first names.
