Reading Dick and Jane with my little girl. She has taken to calling me "Mother" instead of "Mommy" or "Mom"... which doesn't bother me at all. I call my mother "Mother"! I think it might be a Southern thing. But R can't understand why her daddy does not want to be called "Father"! I tried to explain that God was her Father, and Daddy was her Daddy. Not sure she got that!
My dad never let us call him "Father" either. Not that we really wanted to, but sometimes we might just joking around. He always quoted the scripture that says something about, "Call no man Father..."
We are enjoying the sweetness and innocence of the Dick and Jane books. She finished the first one, and is well into her second one.
