FMIL is very big on giving cards for every occassion. I went home from work yesterday exhausted and miserable to find a card from my FMIL. It was a very nice card telling me that she recognized all the hard work that I do from being a good student and mother to soon being a good wife. For the first time she signed it from mom & dad. I thanked her and she told me in 3 months I will be her daughter it’s time to cut it out with all that ms & mr stuff. It made me feel loved and very much appreciated, but then it made me think how weird it will be to call someone else mom.
Anyone have any issues with calling MIL mom?

I feel weird even just calling them by their first names. I don’t think they will ever be Mom or Dad to me.. not for any lack of love or anything.. I will start calling them Grandma and Grampa though as soon as we pop out kids 🙂

That is so sweet! 🙂
My FMIL has been asking for a while what I will call her. I waited until my FI and I were officially engaged to call her ‘mom.’ It’s still a little awkward but she’s very sweet and I figured ‘why not?’
It’s awesome that you have a good relationship with your FMIL. 🙂
