    Default Spin Off: What do your children call their mother and their father

    Another thread that a hubber said the word "mummy" sounded like whining got me thinking.

    What do your kids call you and their other parent?

    I get called Mummy or Teddy.
    My partner is Daddy.
    My ex husband is Dad.

    It's mum & daddy at our house.....I don't particularly like being called mummy, so it took a lot of me calling myself mum to drop mummy down to mum

    Mum and Dad.

    My DH calls his mum by her first name (at her request) and his dad is 'dad'. He said that from preschool age his mum has insisted on being called by her name not 'mum'.
