Weekend Open Thread

March 23, 2013

It’s the weekend, y’all!

What do your kids call you? What do you wish they’d call you?

We taught our kiddos to call us “Mami” and “Papi,” although DS initially called us “Mama” and “Papa” when he first started to speak. But lately, DS has taken to calling me “Mom.” I have no idea why, as he is only 3, so it couldn’t be that he thinks it’s too babyish or whatever.

I don’t know why, but I don’t like being called Mom. Maybe it’s because my own parents were always (and still are) Mami and Papi to me. Plus, I like the Spanish inflection on Mami. As hard as I tried to teach them, my kids don’t speak much Spanish, but I figured I’d at least have Mami and Papi 🙂

We shall see if this is a phase or a permanent change!

What are you up to this weekend? Chat away!
