Just call me ‘mom’

Hailey:  Jenny, will you read me a story?

Me:  Uh…yeah.  But call me “mom”, okay?  It’s weird to call your mom by her first name.

Hailey:  Oh.  (Shrugs.)  Okay, sweetie.

  1. Today my kids are referring to me as, “Her! The one in a bad mood!”


  2. Mine likes to call me by name sometimes, too. Although I also sometimes get “sweetie” as well, or “my darling.” Huh.

  3. Coulda been worse, she could have called you “sweet cheeks”.

  4. Mrs. Chicky is right!

  5. wait till she says her first cuss word. or has that already happened?
    i remember the look on my mother’s face when i got in the car in middle school and absentmindedly said, “Damnit!” good times.

  6. God, I love talking to little kids! They are masters of the turn-of-phrase.

  7. lmao

    she and jake could come up with some serious doozies….

  8. Does she warn you to “be careful, it’s hot” when you take something out of the microwave. I think I’m hearing my words out of someone else’s mouth a bit too much these days.

  9. Forget the crush I have on you, I’ve moved on….to Hailey!!!

  10. My son does the sweetie thing, too! It’s hilarious. Sometimes as I close his door when he goes to bed, he says “Sleep well Sweetie!”

  11. Gotta love it! My grandson is currently calling me “Empress of the Universe”. Of course, that’s because I made him. Oh well.

  12. Hailey is so like you. I love it!

  13. wow – she’s watching AbFab at such a young age??

  15. Better than what they’ll be calling us when their 13!

  16. It’s the three, they’re so sweet at three. And little parrots. Enjoy it while you can.

  17. As long as she doesn’t call you “Ma’am”. I hate that.

  18. That is totally cute!!!!

    Enjoy that cuteness…. because like Lotta said, wait until she is 13….remember, I have a 13 yr old. 🙂

    (Okay really she is still pretty fun!)

  19. damn it, you know I get weird looks for giggling at the computer! hailey is such a sweetie, herself 🙂 good luck, mom

  20. AJ has started calling us “Miss Mommy” and “Mr. Daddy”. Except when he calls me “CindyLou”.

  21. 3-year olds are fun and funny to talk to.
    I am keeping a journal with my three year old daughter and I urge everyone to do the same.
