My daughter (2yrs old) doesn't call me mommy anymore. She calls my mom mommy. Mom loves it. She encourages it. I have to talked to her bout it, she ignores me and says I'm overreacting. Am I? Dd calls me by my name. It hurts.. And now she won't sleep in her toddler bed, bed time has become nonexistent. I'm at my wits end here. I'm a single mom, I haven't had any breaks except a few when she's sleeping. :( I need a glass of wine, and a Prozac. Haha.. I'm losing it.. lol..

That's just wrong on so many levels!  If your mother can' respect your wishs,then maybe she shouldn't spend so much time with your daughter

She babysits while I work. I don't have a choice but for her to spend time with her. I can't afford daycare. I'm thinking of putting in for some vacation time, and not having my mother over.

Sounds like its time to lay down your law. If your mom says you're overreacting tell her that you don't care. You're a mom now and when it comes to your daughter you make the rules. I had to do this when the my kids thought they could go over my head to my mom for things they wanted that I had already said no for and she would give it to them. You're a mother and still a daughter but you're an adult and still want to raise your child how you want.

If you aren't comfortable with it your mom should respect that.

My 4 yr old use to call me mom, my mom mom and my dad dad, but it didn't bother me.

Now I'm "mommy" or "mommy Tori" my mom is "oni" or "mommy oni" and my dad is "dadidoh"

The only person my kids are allowed to call mommy is me.
Based on previous familial issues, if someone was trying to get my kids to call them mommy, they would not be seeing my kids anymore.

Maybe you should call your mom by her given name & correct your daughter (even in front of your mom)  & tell her that her name is_____!  & correct your daughter when she calls Gma by YOUR name!!!
