What do you want your children to call you? If you already have kids, what do they call you?

Any names you desperately want to avoid?

Mama or Mommy would be nice. Ryan has called me "Mama" maybe twice and every other time, I'm referred to as "Baba or Dada"....argh! He laughs at me when I tell him that I'm Mama, not Dada.
Belita, jlstebbins and Jinnah like this.

The boys will mostly call me Mom, sometimes Mommy.

Lila used to call me Mommy all the time, now she mostly calls me Mama which I love. Sometimes she calls me Mom.

Just this morning we were cuddling and she said "Mama, I wub you. You're so cute." as she rubbed my face. hahaha She can be so sweet.

Riley calls me Mama or Mommy. Lately he sometimes calls me Mom and it makes me kind of sad, like he's growing up.

No names I really want to avoid that I can think of.

I get called Mommy or Mama and the occasional MMMMMOOOOMMMMM!!!!!

I definitely don't want to be called Mother. My grandmother called my great grandmother that with such a nasty attitude that it scarred me, lol!

Ma!!! Funny you said that because my daughter called me Ma not too long ago to see what kind of reaction she could get from me. She can be silly

I refer to myself as "mumma" when I'm talking to Madalyn. DH and I refer to each other as Mommy and Daddy when we are talking to Madalyn.
