What do your kids call you?

Mom? Mama? Mommy?

Mine calls me mommy or mama. Usually "mama" unless she wants something...then she calls me mommy.

  • Well, both of my boys are autistic and since they didn't speak much before the age of 4, I cherish every time I hear "Mommy"--whether it's because they're happy to see me, sad, mad, frustrated, etc. It really is the "little things!" :O)

  • They call me mama, and for some reason they call my mom Mommy. lol. I have no idea why, b/c I either call her mama or Nana when I'm talking to them. But they somehow picked up Mommy as their name for her. *sighs* Oh, well. There's worse things they could call me, but I always wanted to be "Mommy". It just sounds sweet.

  • For some reason, my son (age three at the time) called me by my first name for probably six months! My friend will not tolerate her daughter calling her by her name, but I figure he hears everyone else calling me that, so I was ok with it. Now he calls me mom, unless we are playing school.

  • Mommy. My hubby tries to get her to call me mama sometimes, but she doesn't. I prefer "Mommy" anyway :P
