    Default what do you call your OH or what are you called by your OH in front of your kids??

    i ask because i tend to call my OH by his first name well nickname but he has asked me to call him daddy in front of the girls as our 2 year old has started calling him by his first name now and not daddy so how does it work at your place??

    If I'm talking to him, or calling to him I use his name.

    But if I'm talking to my kids about him then I use your dad eg 'Can you go ask your dad what he wants for lunch?'

    I think when the kids were really little we used Mummy and Daddy more.

    I cringe when I hear grown adults call each other Mummy and Daddy - there was a tv show years ago where the father still called his wife Mummy even though the kids were adults

    I call MOTH by his name and he calls me by my name yet when asking the kids to talk to him I say 'Ask you father, or Ask Dad blah blah blah" or even what did Dad say?

    I call DF Babe or by his first name, depending on my mood and what I'm talking about. When talking to the girls I'll refer to him as Daddy.
    My eldest calls DF a range of things from Babe to his first name as well as Daddy. Doesn't bother him in the slightest. DD2 calls him dada or da.

    By his name. Kids are smarter than people give them credit for and if your son is calling him by his name, it's not because he doesn't know that he is 'dad/dy' but because he is trying to get a rise out of him.

    I call my husband honey sometimes but mainly dadda or daddyo. He calls me by my first name or mumma.

    Our daughter is around ALL the time and we love that we are a mother and father so think being called mumma or dadda is a pretty special thing. I have friends who would give anything to have that title
