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?

Oh cool! We were east in Temecula. Dh and I grew up there. It's a gorgeous area in San Clemente. But it got too expensive for us.

 When my kids were little I was Mommy.  As adults I'm either Mom or Mama.  If they want something I'm Mommy and if they're irritated with me it's Mother.  I call mine Mom, unless she isn't paying attention or needs to turn up her hearing aide, then it's Mother.  I have lived most of my life in Texas and my kids were raised here as well. Y'all is part of our vocabulary too......lol

My husband grew up in Europe, and up north (New Jersey) and both him and his brother refer to theirs as Mother.

Very expensive! I miss living in Iowa. I lived out here for 7 months in 2011, then moved back to Iowa. Just moved back in August.
