mama. My mother calls my daughter that. The only other person i have heard call their child that is Tori spelling. Im assuming thats where my mother got it from. It aggrevates me. She is not a mama and i dont want to think of her being one...she is only 3.

I know how to pick my battles so i dont say anything about it, but its still aggrevating.

I know someone who calls her daughter and grand daughter that. It annoys the hell out of me.

I'm Arab and for us when kids are small and learning to talk we call them our name IE if I'm talking to baby I'd say Mama If my hubby is he'd say Baba if my mother in law is she'd say Teta *Grandma* if my FIL is he'd say "Cido" (grandpa) and on and on.

1 mom liked this

I call my daughter "mama" and my son "papa or papi"  Very common with latin families to do that. My mom does also. It's just a term of endearment like sweetie.

LOL...I call my 5 month old Little Mama. I'm not sure where it came from, it just kinda came out one day. I can assure you, however, that I did NOT pick it up from Tori Spelling's goofy ass ;)

-If for any reason you feel an urge to correct my grammar, spelling, or punctuation, please suppress this urge. You are not important enough to me to spend time editing before I post.  I will just laugh at you-
