Re: What do you call your MIL?

First name. DW calls my mom by first name as well. Or Grandma, depending on the context.

Re: What do you call your MIL?

God i hate calling her anything other than "your mom" hahaha

I try to call her by her first name but its uncomfortable
I mean can you imagine calling your MIL - "Fun"??Chat Icon

And its super odd to say "Mom" for me too

"mom" is a disrespectful word I use for the woman my father is married to right now.

My hubby calls my Dad "Dad" though or he'll say "your dad" and I totally understand that.

Its cute that he tells my Dad he loves him too! Chat Icon

Re: What do you call your MIL?

I try not to call her anything. Chat Icon I have a weird relationship with them, I never felt close enough to call them mom and dad even though my DH and I have been together for over 17 years. (We started dating when we were 16) My DH on the other hand always calls my parents mom and dad and he's very comfortable with that. We're closer with my parents then his. I don't call his parents or answer the phone when they call so I don't really ever have to call them anything I guess. Chat Icon

Re: What do you call your MIL?

I call her Mom and it doesnt feel awkward. My mom died shortly after I got married and it took alittle while before I felt comfortable calling her that again (I called her mom then kinda stopped when my mom died then started again)

I am very close to my MIL so its fine, she never requested it. Of my 2 SILs one calls her mom one calls her by her first name.

Re: What do you call your MIL?

I call her Ruth. That's her first name.

Everyone else calls her Janet. that's her middle name.

She wanted me to call her mother. Chat Icon no problem except another word would be added on.

Once I called her abuela. She said I said it wrongChat Icon so she can eff herself. Ruth it is.

ditto for everything...lol....except we have started dating at 17 and together for 14 yrs....lol.....and that my dh doesnt call my parents anything either ....and he doesnt pick up the phone when they call or call them either soooo i guess thats why he doesnt call my parents anything either

oh i did start calling her nana when im over there with dd but thats it

I call her mom. DH calls my mom, mom too.




same here...although it took a little while before it was comfortable just b/ c i am so close with my own mom, it was weird at first calling someone else it. Now it's second nature (my SIL's all call her mom too)

ETA: when i am with my DS i call her nani (what all the grand kids call her)

Her first name or if the kids are in the room "Grandma". It amazes me how I can avoid someone's name for so long by just starting to talk to them.Chat Icon

She's not "mom" to me as that's only one person in my life.

My mom called her MIL mom but she knew her since she was 16 & her mom died when she was 10.
