Already?!?

For the last week or so my kiddo has a few times said "Mom" instead of "Mommy" or "Mama". Each time I've replied with "that's Mommy to you!"

Today he's said Mommy only a few times and he even rubbed it in at lunch. (With my hub's new job he comes home a few times a week for lunch - how cool!) He sat there saying "Hi Daddy, hi Mom." A seemingly endless number of times!

Oh, and BTW I did indeed figure out the issue with Mr. Linky. It must be something with the set up of my makeshift desktop. (We have an external keyboard and mouse set up to a laptop so maybe that's the issue.) It worked just fine from my hubby's computer!!

My 3-year sometimes calls me dude.

"That's Daddy to you, Stinky Butt," I tell him, trying to tease him.

"OK," he'll say. "Daddy Dude Stinky Butt."

Yeah, I remember that happening. Now our middle child calls my hubby everthin from Dad to Daddy to Father to Pappa.

Just hope he doesn't start calling you Heidi :)

It took my oldest a long time to start calling me Mom. I think like 1st grade. But as soon as he did, the second one followed right along. My 3rd will probably never say anything but mom.

Our 5 year old refers to the two of us as guys. And when we first picked them up, our 3 year old called me Abababa, which I kind of liked, but it didn't stick.

sometimes my little guy calls me mom - how horrifying!

Oh, I remember when I became Mom and no longer Mommy. :( Although, they will occasionally let a Mommy in there now and then. :)
