Mama vs. Mom vs. Mommy vs. "Yo!"
Max calls me "Ohmmy." Whatever he calls me, I'll take it! It's just plain amazing that he is able to speak my name.
Sabrina has recently started calling me "Mama," which is weird because I'm not a "Mama" type of person—"Mom" is more my style. She must have picked it up from another kid. Mostly, she uses it when she wants something. As in, "Mama, can I get a new doll?" or "Mama, can I have an ice pop?" Last night she said "Good night, sweetieheart!" when I put her to sleep.
I call my own mother "Mom," and "Mommy" when I'm feeling sentimental.
What do your kids call you—or what do you hope they'll call you?
