If I have to call her anything, she asks that I call her by her first name.  But I consider myself in the group that doesn’t really call her anything.  In person, I usually just look at her- I guess it’s just still weird for me. 

She doesn’t want me to call her mom, which is fine with me, I only need mine 🙂 And she has 5 kids so she doesn’t need another person calling her mom. 

And she hates her Mother-In-Law so I’m not allowed to call her Mrs. lastname since that’s her MIL’s name haha.

I don’t really call her anything to her face. If I had to, I would call her Mrs. Berry. When I’m talking about her though, I call her “Berry’s mom”. Yup, our relationship is awkward.

I use her first name. My mom died 6 years ago, and it just feels weird to call anyone else “mom”.

I call my Future Mother-In-Law Mrs. Last Name and will continue to do so.  I have only one Mum and it isn’t her.

@Spicy Tofu: I’m the same way I still call them both Mrs. and Mr. even though its somewhat understood I can call them by their first name but I think until we’re actually married I’ll still go with the Mr and Mrs. lol

Right now I call them by their first names. Though just a few days after Fiance and I got engaged, they asked me if I wanted to call them mom and dad, so I just have to get used to that, its hard though!

Good thread!  I call Future In-Laws by their first names, FH does the same for my parents.  I call FH’s grandparents ‘Bubby’ and “pop pop’ like he does and they really like that.  My parents always called their ILs ‘mom’ or ‘dad’ but I can’t imagine doing that yet.

@bRooklynRocks: I was thinking the SAMEEE exact thing, lmaoo!! I felt alone reading these responses loll! I have never called any adult by their first name until I started working in corporate America.

From the first day I met FI’s Mom I called her “Mommy”, but the way I was raised I call any woman that is old enough to be my Mother “Mommy” and we’d literally get in trouble if we used any other terms. Any woman that is older than me but not old enough to be my mom was called “Auntie” Loll…I never knew how weird that might be to some people until now. And my Mom is hilarious b/c she’ll tell all my friends to NOT call her Auntie but “Big Mommy” and ALL the children in my church call her “Big Mommy” I told her that I will make my kids call her Big Mommy and she got mad saying “No to them I’m strictly Grandma” lolll!

Not married or engaged, (but his mother has referred to me as her daughter-in-law a few times). I call her by her first name, and will continue to do so after we get married. The only other thing I call her is MiMi which is how her grandchildren and nieces and nephews address her. Although, I have jokingly answered the phone though with a “hi mom” before. LOL

I call her by her first name.  I think it’s cute when she sends me a card or something she signs it “Mom first name”. 

When FI and I talk about our parents we don’t say to each other “my mom” or “my dad” though.
