Oh no! I will flip. out. when this happens. I'm fighting it off with all my might -- when he calls me "mommy" I say, "Who's that? I'm Mama."Of course, "mommy" would be preferable to what the baby calls me: "Dada."
Yeah, just wait a few months. "Mom? Mom! Mommmmmm!" "...""Mommy?" "Yes?"
Happy Mama's Day to you, too!
It all happens so fast. "Mama" was OD's baby word for me, more of a sound than a name. "Mommy" came at about 18 months. I never cared which she called me, but the transition was my first indicator of how fast the time goes. I've been "Mom" since she was about 5, but when she's tired, or scared, or sick, or overly appreciative, I become "Mommy" again. Too much too soon, indeed.
Oh, man. That is a hard pill to swallow. I'm still sometimes called Mama (it's a very Elvis-like rendition), and it gives me a sweet little feeling.
I guess I don't understand...does this mean the little one's growing up? I don't know...you gotta explain it to me.
Yeah, he's growing up. Before I know it, I'll be the bland but all-too-common "Mom." Hell, my mom is still "Mom." "Mom" is the end of the line in my family.
When my husband got back from his last trip, my son called him "Doug" for about 4 days. He wouldn't call him "Daddy." It broke his heart. (Doug/Daddy's heart, that is.)We never figured out why he did that.
My ki8ds are two (turning 3 next month) and just turned 4, and half the time they call me "Ma," "Mom," or "Mother." A couple of times one or the other has even called me "Little Mother." Now that sounds wierd coming from a preschooler.
