If you and your ex get along, your exs new wife loves your kids and treats them fabulously, and has been there for 10+ years- would you be upset it your kids called her Mom too?

My mom is pissed that I call my stepmom Mom. She's been wonderful to me, has been in my life 17 years, and is very much a Mom to me. My mom says its disrespectful to her. What do you think?

I'd say if it upsets her, don't do it.  No matter what you only have one mom, one person who brought you into this world and deserves that precious title.  She's the one who taught you to SAY Mom....so I think she deserves the title.

I call my SM Mom.
BUT- I am way too jealous with my kids. They will NEVER call another woman Mom, unless it's their spouses' mom.

I don't really know how I would feel in that situation.

I can understand why your mom is upset though.

My dh calls his step dad , dad too and I ask him the same question  Don't you think that is rude?.  He doesn't.

Personally I do it to mine as it is to tease him!  I love him like my dad , but just always call him by name!

I don't think I'd mind.  I'm a step-mom and all my SKids call me mom.

I don't think there is anything wrong with it. My bio mom and me can't stand each other and she has admitted she regrets having me so I call some of the other women who I grew up with and helped take care of me mom instead of her.
