I totally agree. I'm a step mom and when dh and I got married, i point blank told my sd that she should call me what she felt comfortable with. She said she probably wouldn't call me mom and i told her that was fine. She calls me Chrisa, which is fine. Every now and then she slips and calls me Momma. That's fine too. She says that she has two moms though. I think two weeks is nothing and no one should be called Mommy or Daddy until they are married and either the bio parent or the step parent and it should be the child's decision. Chelsey doesn't do it out of loyalty to her Mom. That 's totally fine with me. i felt weird the first time I called my mil mom. Dh usually calls my parents mom and dad, so I do the same with his mom. You are totally not overreacting.

Thanks Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!
