what do you call your parents?

Posted by   + Show Post

Do you refer your parents as mom and dad or by their first names now that you are an adult?


I am asking because my boss (64 years old) refers to his late father by his name rather than referring him as "dad". I just find it odd because everyone knows who his dad is (his dad started the company, and the company is his dad's name). 


I call my mom, mom. I call my dad, dad. How about you?

Depends on my mood, my mom is mom, momma, or mommy. My late dad I used to call dad but when he got sick I started to refer to him as daddy and still do.

They are mom and dad, unless I am trying to get their attention after saying "mom" or "dad" a few times... Then, I use their first name. They seem to forget that they have more than one name now lol

 I call them Mom and Dad, unless I'm talking to the kids about them, then they're Granny and Bump. My son and youngest dd call their daddy, "Joe" most the time. Especially our son. I'm pretty sure it's because my oldest two dds from a previous relationship call him Joe, so that's what Ollie started calling him when he learned to talk.

Mum, her husband is just his first name.  My dad died when I was 15, I always called him dad or daddy.
