My stepdaughter tells me she considers me her other Mother, consider's herself my daughter (and her Mother's as well). My stepdaughter has also asked, for years, if she can call me Mom, Mommy, KrissyMommy, MommyKrissy, etc, and I am forced to tell her that I can't let her call me that (her Mother made sure that was in the custody/visitation papers). My stepdaughter is not even allowed to call me her Stepmother (it has the word "Mother" in it ) in front of her Mother- she must refer to me by name or as "Daddy's Wife". Anyways, my Katherine announced last night that, since she can't call me Mom or Mommy or any form of "Mother", even though she thinks of me as her second Mother, she will no longer be calling me Krissy. She says it doesn't feel right, it feels like she's calling me like a babysitter or one of her friend's Moms. She told me that she picked a nickname for her to call me and that's what she will refer to me from now on. My new name? Chrysanthemum. Pronounced, ChrysantheMOM! : And she says it's a flower name, so nobody (meaning her Mother) can complain, and I should think of a flower name for me to call her. : Anyone know a good flower name with a really cool meaning, maybe something that means, "Best daughter anyone could have ever asked for?"
