what name do you go by for your Hav??

Whimsy knows me by the name my grandchildren call me which is Nana.
My husband is Grampy. If I say "Where's Grampy??" she runs right to him.
So, are you Mom, Dad...your first name??

When we first got Chewy, our daughter decided her and Chewy were actually sisters from Mars. She also claimed the Martian word for sister is WooWoo. So that's what Chewy knows her as.

when we first got Jasper we refused to refer to ourselves as mom and dad. It has since sneaked in... but officially DH is alpha and I am alphaette. They definitely know DH as "alpha" (by name if not by status) But I believe the boys also know our names.

I am Mami (not Mommy)
DH is Daddy
My chidren are "The Kids"

When anyone wants to get their attention they either say "Mami" or "You want a treat" and they stop on their tracks right away!

Roki knows me by my name - Marina. But I realized that he understands other words. When I tell him - let's go to kitchen, he goes there. The same is with bathroom, bedrooom, balcony (he waits for me to open the door). He knows names of most of his toys and when I tell him - bring Dyno the dynosaur, he brings that green rubber monster.

I am mama for sure and dh is papa, Tillie knows our kids by thier names but also by "the kids" as in 'lets go get the kids'!! My mom and step dad are grandma and grandpa... I tried to refer to my brother as Uncle, but that didn't FLY and he labeled me as a CDL right then. LOL

Tucker knows me as Nan and DH as Pop. That's what the grandkids call us. Come to think of it that's what our children call us now also.

I'm not 100% sure if Brody knows I have a name. I live alone so he doesn't hear it very often. Sometimes at work I'll hear one of the guys tell him to go find "mom" so I guess if he knows any name it'd be "mom".
