They all started out saying Mama, transitioned to Mommy and then Mom.<br>
It's usually Mommy or Mom, but sometimes Mama <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I voted "mama" because thats what she normally calls me. But she also uses my first name fairly regularly, which I find to be pretty cute.

I voted "Mommy" and "Hey You" just because I'm in a silly mood- and they do call me random weird things (such as chicken nugget) when they're fooling around.<br><br>
I called my parents "Mommy and Daddy" when I was very small, then transitioned to "Mom and Dad" when we were school aged, and that's what we call them now.<br><br>
My kids, OTOH, still call me "Mommy" and their father is "Daddy"- when they had a stepdad they called him "Dad." My 6yo for a while tried to call me "Mom" but I didn't respond to it- I already had 2 big girls calling me "Mommy" and wasn't about to let him change it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

A lot of kids start out with mama and move on to mommy. Our first DD skipped mama, and our second used it for a very short time before going to mommy.

DS is only 15 mo so right now it's mama but I only hear that when he's upset. I suspect it will change. My siblings and I always said mom when we were growing up.

Brandon calls me 'mama'. Jocelyn calls everyone *else* 'mama' and I just get to be "EH EH EH EH EH AHHHHHHH". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">:
