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 like the grandparents names! My husbands maternal grandfather was born and raised in Germany so they are Oma and Opa though Oma is Hawaiian. His paternal grandparents are Nana and PopEye.


Quoting audreesmama:

My 4 year old does this lol.



I'm mama and Dh is papa. Gp's are Nonno and Nonna. We are Italian.




Quoting LTryon:

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
