I ask you. Mommy? I don't like it when my own kids call me mommy, because they're teens. I hate infantilization of language for anyone that isn't, you know, an infant. ETA: Context is HERE. We're talking about a 17 YEAR OLD BOY specifically.
Anyone that is in or beyond puberty saying MOMMY is:
a little strange, but I'm not put off by it.
I'm completely indifferent to the usage.
I think it's a little sweet.
WHY WOULD YOU CALL HER ANYTHING ELSE SHE IS MOMMY FOR EVER AND EVER!
perfect - I still breastfeed, too. And I'm 23.
DID YOU SEE THE CONTEXT I LINKED RIGHT BEFORE THE POLL OR WERE YOU ALL: TICKY BOX! Just checking. ;)
Like when Gwenyth Paltrow won her Oscar in that ill-fitted pink princess dress and thanked her "daddy." No. Daddies, when you're that age, are old men who visit you on the pole and bring you sparkly things.
I CAN'T BE ALONE ON THIS ONE. ...can I?
(Off topic, but the Glee recaps have begun - with cocktail recipes and a drinking game! - and Mel's Bachelorette recap is up as well. That show is CRACK. Whitney Houston crack. And I made a Whitney BOB-BAY! joke in my RHoNJ recap that no one caught and I have a sad.)
