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?

Quoting PeaceLoveZ:

When speaking to her I call my Mom, "Ma" or "Mom". But when talking about her or rfering to her, I use her name, she has a super fun awesome name :)
My dad, is "Dad" thats it.
My step-mom "Wendy" every once in awhile I call her "Whore" too but that's just to fuck with her.

What is your mom's super fun awesome name. Please share with the class.

Mom and dad.

My ex inlaws called my ex husbands grandmother "mommy". His mother was "mama", his father was "daddy", and his grandmother was "mommy".
It was weird. (Hence "ex" inlaws..lol)

I call my mom momma and my dad daddy to I'm also born and raised in the south. I also call my grandpa grandaddy. We live in the north now and people give us some strange looks
