A few days ago, all of a sudden, Gus stopped calling me “Mama,” and started calling me “Mom.”

At first, I thought (hoped?) it was just a fluke, but he’s showing no signs of stopping.

All day it’s, “Mom, juice.” and “Mom, help.” or (my personal favorite) “NO MOM!”

I knew it would happen eventually, but I sort of figured he’d be older.

Like, I don’t know, 10. Or 5.

I’d have settled for 3.

  1. That shift is so slight but when you notice it, it’s kinda jarring!

    Good news is, Evelyn had stopped calling me “mama” and only called me “mommy” or “mom”, but just the other day she reverted back to “mama”. Bliss!

  2. My little guy is 23 months, and will sometimes call me mommy. It about makes me cry that he doesn’t always call me mama still. I thought he’d be around 3, before he started calling me mommy. Why can’t they stay babies a little longer!
