What do you call you mother? I call mine ‘mom’. When I was little I called her ‘mother’ because I wanted to sound mature. Since I not only get to chose my kid’s name, I also get to chose what she calls me, I chose ‘maman’. I wanted to call her a French name but my associate wasn’t having it so instead I’ll have the French name. My mom always said that she hated being called ‘mother’ and now that I am one, I get it. Well, whatever your called, happy Mother’s Day!
