I'm curious if its a regional or just a familial difference? I was raised in California to call her mom but my mother was raised by southern born parents to call her mama. I'm raising ds in Tennessee and he says mama (and yes ma'am but dh put his foot down about ds saying y'all). So what about y'all? And why do you think?
Let's see, I'm from Oklahoma, I call my mother mama to this day. My daughter (who is 18) typically calls me either mom, or mama. My son (13) refuses to stop calling me mommy. He says I am a special kind of mother, I deserve mommy forever! LOL He's my sweetheart!
I am called Mommy or Mom and sometimes Mama........LOL. I was born and raised in the south. I am all about the y'all and the yes maa'm etc etc. Mostly my kids call me Mommy......though. I call mine Mama and my dh's mother Mom.
