What's it to you: 'mama', 'mom', 'mommy', or 'mother'?
The other day, someone said to me, "Oh, I saw your website! The MOMMY one." I cringed and may have rubbed my ear. "Mommy", I thought? Every since I became a mama, I've always been called "mama". My little ones have always called me "mama." Always. Letters to me say, "Dear Mama." Even my own mom will tell the girls, "Go ask your mama." I am not sure why the preference. Could it be that "mommy" (or "mommeeeeee") harkens thoughts of minivans and soccer practices and big houses with three car garages? Could it be that "mama" is a better-fitting suffix to "yoga-", "bikey-", "urban-"?
A long while ago, Sarah made mention of prefering the moniker " mama" over "mom". I know we are all urbanMamas here, but we're also "mamas", "moms", "mommies" and "mothers" at home. I was wondering if you have a preference: do you care? Does it make a difference?
