  • Every mom I know does that, including me! My great grandmother only had ONE daughter, my grandma, but she would still call my mom's name, my name, my cousin's name my mother's name and FINALLY my grandma's. Or if she called me, she ran the list backwards till she got to my name. My mom had two kids, my brother and me, so she even went through our pets' names! Yeah, pretty common. I hear my neighbors even sing out the wrong name when they mean to call one kid, but say the other's name. Yeah maybe #s would be easier, but I doubt it! I'd just go"Number three! I mean number FOUR!--get over here!" etc...

HE!- RO!- PA!- ZO! Janet!!!!!!! by then I was gone, baby, gone lol! It sounded even funnier with his Mexican accent!!! I miss him : (

  • It's even worse when I call one of my daughters by my son's name or call my son by one of my daughter's names. And even worse still is when I address one of them by the cats name. LOL
