There are an awful lot of Mommy Bloggers out there, and they actually call themselves that. "Mommy"
Mommy did this and Mommy did that. Mommy cleaned up the poop and Mommy made dinner.
I would like to tell all of you "Mommies" out there a cautionary tale of intrigued, shock, and pure embarrassment.
My sis-in-law, or sil from now on because I'm lazy, is 36. She still calls her Mom "Mommy."
Yes. Take that in. Think about it. Think about your child calling you that in public once they are old enough to live on their own.
The first time I heard her do it was right before she married my brother. She was on the phone, and she said, "I love you Mommy."
Oh she didn't just call her Mommy, did she?
Well I figured it was a fluke, or she was feeling sentimental with the wedding and all. She probably didn't think anyone heard her.
Then during a fitting for bridesmaids dresses she did it again. In like public. In front of people.
I told my Mom what happened. She was like, "She did not." I assured her she did.
Now just plain Mommy would be bad enough. She says it how a two year old says it. Mooommiiiieeee.
Over the years I have enjoyed the shock of others when she is with her Mom and she calls her Moommiiiieeee.
She also encourages her children to call her Mooommiiiieeee, and she almost gets depressed when they call her Mom.
She is one twisted chick, let me tell ya.
I call my mom "Ma" usually, or if I'm in a sarcastic mood "Mother" because she absolutely HATES that. Sometimes I'll call her Mooommiiiieeee, but it is for pure sarcastic laugh at my sil's expense kind of deal.
It's a head turner in public, let me tell you. I have seen some of the most priceless looks ever while hiding behind other people, under the table, anywhere so it didn't look like I was with her.
The most common look is the "What the fuck did she just say" look. A close second is the "What the fuck is wrong with her" look.
I'm sure some of you Moooommmmiiiiieeee's out there are thinking that it wouldn't be so bad. It might even be kind of special if your child called you that their whole life.
It is, and it's not. Trust me. You do not want to be 90 some day and have a 65 year old saying "Moooommiiieee." Cease and desist with the Mommy stuff before it is too late!
