My sister thinks it's inappropriate we don't call each other "mom" and "dad"?

My daughter's first word was "Mike", my DH's name, because she hears me call him that. I thought it was funny. She calls both of us mom and dad now.

My sister thinks we shouldn't refer to each other by our first names around her. I'm not calling my husband "dad", it creeps me out. What do you think?

Eh, we say mom and dad, so did my parents lol. Just what we are used to. I don't think it matters either way.

I think that's odd.

Actually I'll add that when we call each other mom or dad it's when we are doing something involving our kids.

I don't refer dh as daddy, or he calls me mommy. It's just wierd, I would HATE him for calling me mom, I HATE his mom.

Dd's first word was still mama

I think that's strange lol. I only refer to DF as "dad" or "daddy" when I'm speaking to the kids about him, or in context with our kids. "Daddy will be home soon." "Ohhh dadddddy, DD has a surprise for you!" Stuff like that.

Same, that'd creep me out! I'll ask them to take something to daddy, or vise versa, but if I'm talking to him, I address him as such by his name or whatever I call him.

I wouldn't call my dh "dad" either, because he's not my dad.  plus, I always found that a wee bit creepy.

of course, I never call him by name either, it's always "sweetie", "honey", "babe".  it's funny because I'll say "sweetie" and four people will turn around - dh and all the kids.  it could be anyone.
