They call me mom.

When talking to NCBM on the phone, they say "mom" or "other mom" when talking about me. They know both of our names. According to the kids, they have to call me by my name at BM's & they have to call their stepdad "dad" when they prefer to call him by his name.

They all call me mom, In front of their BM they call me by my name. How ever my 17 year old step daughter calls me by my name.

SD calls me mom, she doesn't see BM often enough anymore and BM doesn't even call, so there is no issue.  There was for a while when SD was little and called me Mama, I explained she was just learning how to talk from DS and no one told her to or whatever, BM was psycho about it though.  But since about a year and a half ago SD started calling me Mom all the time and I don't care, BM gets no say anymore.

I just PIOG about my DSs dad giving him crap for calling my DH dad, he calls DH and BF dad, no big deal here.  No one forced him to call DH dad, DH had asked that he call him something other than his first name because it bothered DH and felt disrespectful to him, we tried to help DS come up with a nickname, but he decided to just call him dad.  He sees BF EOWE for about 24 hours.  DH does all the "dad" stuff with BFs agreement since he chooses not to do anything, his visits are supposed to be longer and more frequent, he chooses not to take them.  IMO, if a parent chooses not to parent, then the kid can call anyone that does parent mom or dad.  It's just how it works here, and I'm pissed that BF made DS feel like crap when it is BFs own issues, not DSs. 

Maybe I will post my vent to this group and get some responses :)

Most of the time "cici", but occasionally he slips and calls me mom but he's 2.
