  • Mood:
so my 4 year old son has taken to calling me by my first name. often it's when he really wants my attention but sometimes it's just in regular conversation. when I asked him why he said "sometimes I call you 'Mommy' and sometimes I call you 'Kelly', just like sometimes you go to work on Sunday"
(note: I'd gone to work on Sunday ONCE in the last year!)

I'm not sure how to handle it. do I insist he call me 'mommy'? (by not answering otherwise or whatever) I just don't see that being very productive. I've known people who started calling their parents by their first names at a fairly young age. of course he still calls his daddy 'Daddy' :P

oh, well, I guess he'll grow out of it --- or he won't...
