My kids call me Mommy. They heard their father call me that whenever they were in the room. You also practice with them.

I always called my mom, mom 😛

It was like the first word that ever came out of my mouth, and it came naturally. But my mother didn’t do the 3rd person talk either.

Calling my mom for the first name is weird :S (for me).

@bunnymama:  More likely than not, you WILL end up calling yourself mommy/mom/momma. I don’t use baby talk with my kids (how are they supposed to learn proper English when you don’t speak it yourself? Lol.) and I still refer to myself like that. 


My kids call me momma and honestly it was just a natural thing. Mom seems too formal to me and its just what my son kept with so that’s also what his younger sister picked up on. My Fiance says “go to momma, listen to momma, momma will be back soon”. 


Its like having differen sets of grandparents be called different things to lessen confusion. My mom decided on nana so that’s what we call her and the babies learned that. My mother is a no nonsense type woman and still refers to herself in the third person as nana. Lol.

Both my girls call me Momma.  I didn’t tell them to- they just do it??

My son calls me Mamma, I think he started to catch on after Darling Husband and I both referred to me as that for awhile.

I call my parents mom and dad.  I don’t know how they taught it but I think, more often than not, it just comes kind of naturally.
