  • I love my MIL but have never thought of her as my mother.

  • Call mine by her first name, it would be nice to call her mom but I'm not sure if that will ever happen.

  • Everyone else in the family calls my MIL "Mom". Even the grandchildren call her "Mom", not Grandma, Mimi, Nana etc. This began with the first grandchild who began calling her "Mom". I just can't. I call her Wilma. It just feels un-natural to call her Mom. They call Grandpa "D-Dad"....and again, this began with first grandchild and stuck!
    I also just don't think my own mother would appreciate me calling anyone else "Mom". My mother wouldn't be angry over it...I just don't think she would prefer it, so I respect that. :-)

  • I say both. Most of the time I call her by her first name, but I have called her mom at times. She respondes quicker to mom, lol.

  • no way, first name. Maybe because we don't have that sort f relationship, but I always thought it was weird when people called their MILs Mom..
