Did You Just Call Me Mommy?

I was at my brother and sister-in-law’s house Friday visiting my niece and new nephew. I was chatting to S and L when I heard a voice say ‘Here, Lisa.’

I stopped in mid-sentence, looked down and saw my little guy reaching up to give me some of his cousin’s toys.

‘Did you just call me Lisa?'
Yes, he did.
‘My name is Mommy,’ I replied. He giggled and ran away.

On Sunday he was in the tub with Daddy when I heard ‘Leeessssa’ being bellowed from the bathroom.
I went in to see a giggling baby calling me by my name.

‘My name is Mommy.’
‘Lisa’
‘Mommy.’
‘Lisa.’
‘Mommy.’
‘Mommy?’
Yes.

Apparently he found calling me by my name quite funny.
I must admit. So did I.

That's cute! Recently my mom was babysitting my kids and said "Mommy's home!" when I got home. My six year old looked at her and said "Um, we don't say Mommy in this house. We say MOM."

Cute! I think all kids go through that stage. It must be weird for their little brains to try and figure out why everyone calls you a different name. A few years ago R started to call me Mom, and I insisted he still call me Mommy. Now I wouldn't be too upset if he did, but it's still Mommy and I love it!

Funny story! I haven't run into that here...yet.

Congrats on the new nephew! I hadn't heard anything. Could you email details to me, please???
