My daughter is barely 2 and every man we come in contact with she calls "Daddy". I've tried the explaining that "no, this isn't daddy this is Chris, Brian, Tom ect," but she is determined to call all men daddy. I know it is common for small children to over generalize and call all adults mommy and daddy- we went through this- but this seems different and she even more determined that every guy is daddy, from the pharmacist to the guy standing in line behind us at the grocery. I know this is probably way worse for me than it is her at this age and people are generally kind, because kids say all kinds of crazy things but it is getting really embarrassing. She has never had a dad and it's a long story but there isn't going to be one unless I happen to meet a great guy along the way. She is too young to explain what happened and I feel bad saying, "Honey, we don't have one of those in our family." Has anyone else been here? I know she'll out grow it and get old enough to where I can explain why our family only has us, but until then what?
