(Or Dad or Daddy?)

what do your children call you?

Joseph (5) calls me mummy but someone made a comment to me that they thought he was too old to call me that and I should be Mum now Sad I like being mummy, I know I can't be that for ever but at least for the forseeable future I would still like to be, he is my baby.

Jas went from mummy to mum to mumma now. I think whatever they like is cool Cool There shouldn't be an age limit. I had a friend who was turned 30 who still called his parents mummy and pa and it kinda suited Very Happy

We wanted our daughter to call us by our real names. But the grandparents HAD to have it their way. They said it was "disrespectful". I don't see how disrepectful it is if the parents don't mind.

But we are called everything mom, mommy, mama, mother. dad, daddy, father.

Frank is Daddy and I'm Taddy (Tad means father in Welsh) with the boys, with Pippa we are both Doo, if Mike's wants our attention and he isn't getting anywhere he calls us by our first names, where as Jamie just calls us Pooey.

The younger two (5 & 6) both still say daddy. The eldest (11) usually uses dad in public but frequently uses daddy when at home.

We both get called all sorts, it depends on Lolly's mood, LOL Rolling Eyes I am mum, mummy, mama etc. Mike is daddy more often than not, but sometimes dad, or dada (especially if she wants something!) I don't think mummy is a problem at all at Josephs age hun. I really wouldn't worry. Let him use whatever he is comfortable with. Lolly went through a stage of saying Mike instead of daddy, i think it was because she didn't understand why she couldn't as she heard everyone else saying Mike? We just ignored it and didn't make a big deal over it and she soon reverted back to Daddy. Jake still calls us mama and dada. Tbh he has very few words at only 11 1/2mths LOL Xx

As far as I'm concerned my kids can call me mum or mummy whatever they feel comfortable with and they call me both. I wouldn't worry about the comments made to you kids aren't kids for long these days they'll decide when they feel too old to call you mummy

George uses either mum/mummy or dad/daddy. It doesn't worry us what he uses as we know we can't always be mummy & daddy and come later in the year he'll be at school and will probably use mum & dad more than anything.

Georgia-Mae uses both mum and mummy, dad and daddy.

I personally prefer mummy atm Shrug but i am happy for her to call me whatever she feels comfortable with.

It's up to the parents and the little one what they want to be determined as - no one else!
