My daughter Jenessa turns 7 in August and she asks me today, "Mommy, is it okay to call you Mom and Daddy Dad?" I said, "If you want, but I like Mommy." She says, "Mommy is a baby word and Im not a baby anymore." I just looked at her and said, "You will always be my baby." She said, "But IM NOT A BABY!" :-( Kinda makes me sad shes feeling so grown up. Why do they have to grow up so fast?

It gets better... With time.
I've explained the SAME thing to my 12 yr old. More than once.
I've had to remind him that when he 40, he's still gonna be my baby and
I think he gets it...
But now that his friends know how I am, and my son & I are very close & total ball-busters to each other... I tease him by calling him my baby when his friends are around & hes gotten past the mortified stage and just rolls his eyes.

Aww, I know the feeling! My boys will be in K and 2nd grade next year. I can't believe they're growing up so fast...

If it helps, I started out as "mommy" then became "mom" when she was about 7 or 8.. My daughter is 15 now and I'm "mommy" again..
