    Good idea! Sounds like you've handled it well

    i met my dsd when she was 2 and she is now almost 11. once her dad and i had been together a bit she started calling me "mynameshortened" mummy. even her family thought it was cute. now she is older we still have a fantastic relationship and she just calls me by my shortened name now. her mum didnt really get a say (and i mean no offence by this please) as her new partner was being called dad without consultation with my hubby so in the end it was up to sd to call me that. on that note thou bm and that guy split and she has never called any more of her mums partners dad since then. she does refer to her mums partner now as her step dad as they have been together ages and are engaged.

    I think if the child just says it then it's fine just not when it's forced
