I'm curious if its a regional or just a familial difference? I was raised in California to call her mom but my mother was raised by southern born parents to call her mama. I'm raising ds in Tennessee and he says mama (and yes ma'am but dh put his foot down about ds saying y'all). So what about y'all? And why do you think?

I'm "mom"... But apparently I'm "and mom" to my 8 year old ds.lol he starts every conversation like that... Like he's continuing a thought, even if it's been a half hour since he's said anything.lol

Oh yeah, we're from Michigan.

I call my mother mom (occasionally mamma). DS calls me mommy, dd calls me Mum.  They've spent most of their lives in Florida, i'm from Pennsylvania.
