Got an Answer?
maybe calling step mum 'mum sue' is okay, but calling her real mum 'mum betty' is just weird
Read this twice.. still don't understand it.
Yeah no that's not really cool, and a new baby is a shitty excuse. I have a toddler and my eldest daughter calls her step father by his first name, guess what my toddler still calls her father dad! It's not good and your ex needs to put a stop to it unless your ok with it.... I'm just really not ok with step parents over stepping the line from past bad experience, my daughter is on her second crazy "stepmum" I'm sure there will be more
I'm a stepmum and the girls dont call me mum. We've talked about it and ive told them they have a mum and im not trying to replace her. They call me by my nickname, and our younger son calls both parents mum and dad. Im sure the girl im currently carrying will do the same.
I do think you should just talk to your ex :-)
Is she aboriginal by any chance? That's pretty common to call close aunties and step mums "mum Mary" or whatever. At least here in the town I live anyway. If it makes you feel uncomfortable or your daughter uncomfortable then try and have a friendly chat about why she can't call her that.
We called my step mum goldie (gold digger) as that's what mum called her. She had an affair with dad and left mum and us to be with her and have two more kids. We were awful to her and often told our step sisters how horrible their mum was for taking our dad. Goldie got the last laugh as we were meant to inherit millions from our dad when she died but she had spent it on her kids.
I have a step son and two boys of my own. They call me mum. He calls me by my first name and refers to me as mum when talking to them.
No but my step kid's mum is weird- she makes her spag bol using mince, tomato soup and spaghetti. The kids eat like 3 bowls of mine and often ask if i can write the recipe down for their mum- which i wont do coz she'd probs skitz if i implied her cooking was 'poor'. To be fair ive never tried it- but it sounds shit...
Don't knock something unless you have tried it.
id never ask or expect my stepdaughters to call me mum. even when they both consider me more of a mother than their own. and obviously theyre older than my own kids yet all my kids call me mum.
My kids call my partner dad because his kids do. They all call me by my first name, because the older kids do. Mine are 3 and 5. His are 7 and 10. I get mum from no one. But I don't really care x
Yeah its weird i had a step mum and step dad growing up and called them by their names and they had children with my parents and their kids called them mum and dad , there was never an issue. My brother has a step son and his wife is step mum to his daughter they get called by first names and bio parents get called mum and dad, the only confusion was my niece called step mum, mum, she was corrected her to her name . If she wants to be called mum name and your ok with it fine, but you are mum.
My daughters step mum is German and asked to be called motty (German for mummy not sure of spelling). I call her mutty so does my daughter lol.
