I just wanted to put in my vote to stop always calling ourselves "moms." There's nothing wrong with the word per se. It's just that when that's ALL we call ourselves, it seems to me to trivialize the experience of mothering. In my younger years, we were all "mothers." I remember a little magazine from Venice, CA, called "MOMMA: The Organization for Single Mothers." Just my input. I think occasionally calling ourselves "Moms" is great. And, of course, using it as a term for you to address your child or your own mother is just fine.
