Do you call your children by other names accidently?

I swear my parents don't even know my real name. They call me my niece's name all the time. When I was growing up, my mom used to go through about seven names before she got mine right.

  • All the time, and I quite often end up using the dog's name too. I come by it honestly though, my Granny did it and my mom did it too.

  • lol, sometimes i switch my kids names on accident. for my brother and sister, i would normally go through a if i'd want to call my brother (he's 9), i would say my son's name, then my DD's, then my sister, until i finally said his name. as for my sister (13) i would say her mom's name (my step mom), brothers name, my dh's name, DS's name, DD's name, and then finally her name. time my brother was acting up and i got onto him and i called him by my sons name. my son was in the room just watchin tv and looked at me like "what did i do??" lol...i felt so bad

  • My mom used to call both our names, no matter who she wanted.

    My paternal grandmother didn't even bother with names. We were all "girl" and "boy." Of course, there were about 40 of us so she had an excuse!

  • All of our names start with D, so there is some confusion around here. I even call my DH by one of the kids names. He does the same to me.

  • I"m always calling someone the wrong name around here. I do it so often that my 3 yr old (her name is Eva) will say "You mean Eva!" even when I dont mean Eva! lol
