When you were growing up, what did you call your parents?

Have you changed what you call them as an adult and if so, what do you call them now?

Yes, Shelly.... when I'm talking to my kids, it's either Nana & Papa or Grandma & Fred (their step-grandfather).

I'm sure when I was little I called them Mommy and Daddy, but I don't remember it. I called them mom and dad until I had kids, and now they are Granny and Papaw to all of us!!! LOL

Mamma and pappa but  in our family my mum has most often been known as   Mutti ( German word for mum) and dad  Pappskalle  ( Airhead) but it also a really bad word pun. 

Now I tend to call them  by thier name which my sisters hates but I have had stepkids and it is easier to just say the names instead of stepgrandmother or stepgrandfather and then thier name.

When I was young it was Mommy & Daddy.  Then it switched to Mom & Dad.

My Mom would always say -"Wait till your Father gets home" and my Dad would always say "go ask your Mother".

I do not remember calling my mom anything but mom but I did call my dad, King Bubby as a kid.  I have no idea why... lol. 

Now they are mom and dad but sometimes when I am talking about my dad, I will say "my daddy!"  I guess because my father was the affectionate parent... he always makes me feel like daddy's little girl.

Mom and Dad, here, too. I am sure I must have called them Mommy and Daddy when I was little, but don't really remember. Not sure when the boys stopped calling me mommy... pretty little, I think, because Erick and I always refered to each other as Mom and Dad. Hmmm... maybe they never called me mommy!? I really can't remember now. How does one forget that?????

I had Mama and Daddy until I was about 10.   Then I changed it to Mom and Dad.   It's been Mom and Dad since.

My kids called us Mommy and Daddy until they were maybe 7 or 8.   Then it swapped to Mom and Dad.
