Default What do/did you call your mother? and what do/did your kids call you?

When I was little, my mother was "Mommy"
When I was older, she was "Mom"

Two of my kids call me "Mom" - two of them call me "Madre" - occasionally I will get "Muh-THER" from one of the last two. They might have called me "Mommy" when they were little, but I really don't remember for sure.

Mother, but that was using the term loosely. However when I hear the name GRANDMA, my heart skips a beat, I get all happy inside and have the best memories ever. Same with my grandma's sisters, my two great aunts and the great-aunt sisters in law. I LOVED those women to pieces.

I always called her Mum... I guess when I was little she was Mummy. My little daughter calls me Mama, but she is just learning to talk, so that could change next month, lol!

I called my mom "Mommy" when I was little, but when we were older we wanted to shorten it to "Mom." She didn't want to be called "Mom" for some reason. She preferred "Mama" so that's what we called her.

My kids call me "Mom" except for my teenager. When he wants something badly , or when he's really hurting (like his appendix on the verge of rupturing) he calls me "Mommy." Sometimes when he's in a really good mood it's "Hello, Mother," to which I say, "Hello, Son."

Mom and mom. I have an only child, and I always thought it was funny when he would leave a message on my phone and say "Hi, mom, it's me (name)." Maybe he got that from me leaving messages for my parents? (Sometimes one sister and I sound similar, so names are good on messages.)
