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?

This. I sounded like a big baby when I was giving birth. I kept yelling I want my mommy! Where is my mommy! Some of the nurses thought it was cute I still call her that.



Quoting DamiensMommy1:

momma and daddy. it sounds juvenile I know. I've just never changed it to mom & dad as an adult.. plus I'm from the south so its pretty common :)

I call my mom, mom and my dad died when I was 16 but I would probably still call him dad.
