my son is learning how to speak and i want him to call me mama.but i don't know where he got the idea of calling me mommy, maybe from watching television or from the neighborhood. how about you, how does your kids call you, mommy or mama? or how do you call you mother?

It's a good thing both my husband and i call our moms "Mommy" because I wouldn't feel right about hearing my child call me "Mama". I'm just not used to it. My daughter now calls me "Mommy". It's brings a smile to my lips when she calls me this.
