Do you call your MIL mom?

I dont.  She is "hey you", grandma, or Mrs. _______ when I am talking about her to someone else.  My dh does the same.  It is just weird to me-she isnt my mom!!

I call her Lisa because that's her name. I would never call that cunt mom. I hate her. But she does not know that.

Nope. First name basis only.

 I don't call her anything. Seriously, in 15 years of marriage, I've never addressed her as anything. I just wait until I get her attention naturally and then talk to her.  LOL

No, she's Carol. She did not raise me, she is not my mom.

Hmm, I kinda wish now that I could call my mil anything, but she never liked "mom" from the in-laws.  I totally took advantage of her wisdom when she was around.  She passed away almost a year ago today.  I miss her... and we were never "buds" when she was alive.  But a very kind and smart woman she was.  And she raised a good boy!

I honestly haven't called her anything. I don't know how I've got away with it for 8 yrs I just have.
