Considering I still call my stepmom, who has been in my life for as long as I can remember and is just as much a parent to me as my mom and my dad, by her first name, I’ll probably always call her by her first name. But that’s just me.

@HisIrishPrincess: My mum passed away when I was young also but it would never feel right to call anyone else “Mom.”  I do adore my FMIL but I just call her by her first name.

I use her first name.  I don’t forsee being able to call her “mom” any time soon.

I use her contracted first name – more of a nickname. I wouldn’t feel right calling her mom.

It felt weird at first to call my MIL mom but I grew to love it. My father in law absolutely melts when I call him Dad. Actually, I call him the Albanian name for dad. It was also kind of weird at first to me. However, I love it now and wouldnt want to call them anything else. When I talk about them to other people I say their names but to their face or on the phone I call them mom and dad. They feel closer to me because of it and really do treat me like a daughter so it seems quite normal to me!

I call my MIL Mom and my FIL Dad when I’m talking to them directly.  When I am talking about them to someone, then they are Anton’s parents to avoid confusion.  🙂  I love my IL’s and I see no disrespect in showing that.  My mom and dad know that they will always be my parents and love that I have such a great relationship with my IL’s!

I just use her first name although I know that FSIL calls her “mum” too.  FI’s stepdad is called by his first name too, so I just use that. I just find it reallt weird. 🙂

At first it was Mrs. ___ but then she kept telling me to call her by her first name so I do that now. I don’t think I could ever call her mom but my dad called his mother in law mom all the time and I think its cute but I don’t see us being that close. (My parents lived with her for the last 4 years of her life and visited her every year so they were close).

I call my mother in law Mrs. Marie. I wouldn’t dream of calling her just Marie.
