[name_m]Will[/name_m] it be the same thing you called your parents? [name_u]Or[/name_u] something different?
I called my mom mom (mommy only before 4YO) and my step-dad who raised me by his first name.
[name_f]My[/name_f] kids call us mama and papa and we are set with that continuing. I like mama way better than mom or mommy personally.
I called my parents “mom and dad” or “mommy and daddy” when I was young. Our kids call me Mommy or Mom and their dad “Papi”. They’ve never called him “dad” or “daddy”, but then I refer to him as “Papi” when talking to them about him.
I called my parents the Greek equivalent of Mum and Dad (Mama and Baba). I think I’d prefer to be called mum by my own kids! Though I’m planning on adopting so depending on the situation some may call me by my first name (:
i called my parents - mum & dad- sometimes “da”. i never really called them anything else!
i think when i have children i’ll go by mama when they’re young and then just ma or mom
Same for me! Called mom mom but mommy when I was very little. [name_f]My[/name_f] mom always called her mom mama and I think that’s appealing to me more. Mommy doesn’t really appeal to me and mom feels like it’s already taken.
I call my parents Mama/Mommy & Daddy (yes, still). I tried to use Mom & Dad various times over the years, but it just never felt good to any of us. I don’t particularly like the idea of being called Mom either. I’d prefer Mommy and/or Mama.
i call my parents mum and dad (mummy and daddy when i was younger). i’d prefer to be called mam when i have kids (welsh for mum), but i know from experience that kids call you what they want!
I call my parents Mama and Daddy. They were thinking Mama and Papa, but then as a toddler I started calling my grandpas “Papa”
[name_f]My[/name_f] boys call us Mommy and Daddy at the moment. [name_f]My[/name_f] husband didn’t feel like a Papa, and we’ve kind of gone back and forth between Mama and Mommy. I’m fine with either. We’ll see if we become Mom and Dad in future; our 20- month-old has already been saying “dad”
I imagine it will play out how it did when I was a kid: starting with mama/dada then mommy/daddy and settling on mom/dad. It seems pretty typical for American families and it is fine with me though I wouldn’t mind if my kids came up with their own words for us.
Currently, my son (still under 1.5 years) calls us mama/mom and dada. I absolutely love being mama and a part of me will be sad when that term fades away.
I call my mom a variety of names. Usually Mum, but also Mom. I’ve also thrown Mama and a couple of others in there occasionally (can’t think of them now).
For my kids, I would love to have Mum as a title, but will take whatever they grace me with.
[name_f]My[/name_f] kids call me Mum or Mumma and my husband dad or da sometimes but nothing else really - I think that’s pretty much the norm but it is really up to every parent what they would prefer to be called
[name_f]My[/name_f] son will call me mama/mummy I hope. I call my mother mum, though she was mummy when I was a toddler. [name_m]Just[/name_m] the norm!
Probably Mom or Mama
I call my mom various things. Mommy, Mum, Mumsy, Mother, Ma. And i call my dad, Father and Daddy. Honestly i guess ill just use whatever seems right in the moment.
I called my mum Mommy or Mummy!
[name_f]My[/name_f] kids will probably call us Mama and Dada/Papa
[name_f]My[/name_f] mom is almost exclusively referred to as “Mom.” I would be fine with that, but I think I prefer Mama, at least when they are little!
I called my parents Mum & Dad (SO is the same). I’d quite like to be Mama & Dada^ when they’re young, then I’m happy to be Mum & Dad as they get older.
^ I would prefer us to be Mama & Papa to our kids, but my SO called his grandparents [name_f]Nanny[/name_f] & Papa so I suspect we might get our children to use [name_f]Nanny[/name_f] & Papa for their grandparents on his side, and [name_u]Nana[/name_u] & [name_f]Poppa[/name_f] for mine (I’d prefer that than one being [name_u]Nana[/name_u] [name_u]Jean[/name_u], and the other [name_u]Nana[/name_u] [name_u]Julie[/name_u], for example).
Mommy when young, Mom when older, which is what I called my mother.
I call my parents mama and pop. [name_f]My[/name_f] SO and I already refer to each other as mummy and daddy when talking to our dog (as in “where’s daddy”, “stay with mummy”) so might have to work on that cause I’d probably prefer mama and papa.
