Default The word Mom...

I keep seeing FB posts which say things like:

Friends call your mom Mrs ------
REAL friends just call her mom


I don't agree. I have a mom. Your mom is your mom. I might love you like a sister and love your mom like an aunt..........but I will not and cannot call her mom. Further more, I do not want my kids' friends to call me mom either. Mrs. Cooper will do.........Angie to their very close friends is fine after they've been given leave to do so.

I have a mother in law, I do not call her mom either and won't as long as my mother still breathes. To me, in my heart, it feels like disrespect to my own mother and I can't do it.

How do you feel about this issue? *poll coming*

That would be WIERD if someone called my mom mom and she wasn't actually their mother. I don't like that at all.

Then again, the other side of my family is super close to our grandmother ("Omah", and growing up ALL of my cousin's friends called her Omah, and still do! She loved it though, and I didn't find that all that wierd.

Agree, that's where it gets cloudy! I don't mind calling other people Grandma or Grandpa if they ask to be called that. Doesn't bother me at all, I call my husband's grandparents that, no problem.

Not mom or dad though, that's different! *shrugs* weird, LOL

Uh, no. My mom is and was Mrs. Lastname to all my friends. My parents are still Mr. and Mrs. Lastname to my husband of 4 years.

I call his parents by their first names. She asked me to call her mom, and I tried...but I just can't do it. I could call her Hilda Pigglebottom before I called her Mom.

I call my mil mom & my husband calls my mom mom. We became one & joined each other's family when we married each other... so my parents (and grandma, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc..) also became his, and vice versa.

Beside my mil, I've never called anybody else mom. I do call the Priests, with whom I have close relationship with, dad. They are, after all, Fathers

Yea I can't even bring myself to call my MIL/FIL mom or dad - it's just wrong to me - so they are Nancy and Jeff or "Scott's Mom/Dad". It never even occurred to me to call friends' parents mom/dad either!

Nope. I have a mother. Pauls family is not my family. They are his family. I have my own Mom and Dad and I don't want or need his. I call his mom Margaret and he calls my parents by their first names.

I always thought it was weird to call your friend's mom mom. I do have a "second mom" but that's her description - her name is Lisa.

I never thought about referring to my MIL/FIL as mom/dad.....I think I would've been really weirded out by them asking me to. I already have a mom and dad thanks. I do wish someone would tell me what to call Matt's gparents. LOL.

I'll call some people I know Momma Jill, or Mama Mickey etc. Those are always the assistant coaches who do more mothering then coaching, so its appropriate. They really are my other moms, and I like that I can call them that. Its just a name, it doesn't really matter imo

For me, no I can't call anyone else Mom. But 1 or 2 of my friends called my mom, mom. My house was the one where everyone was all the time, so they all knew my mom way better than I knew theirs.

My husband however does call his best friend's mom, mom, because she was like his mom the years when he was living with his dad growing up. (she is not his step mom, he just spent so much time at his best friend's house).
