A Parent By Any Other Name

I’ve been delighted and fascinated by your great responses to yesterday’s unscientific survey on what our kids call us—so much so, that I’m going to encourage readers again to participate, if you haven’t already. (Please click the link to submit your answers to the spreadsheet; don’t just leave a comment.) So far, we’ve got lots of “Mommy” and “Mama,” but also “Baba,” “Eema,” “Lala,” “Maman,” “MaPa,” “Mutti,” and others.

The whole spreadsheet is here, so you can see how others have responded. Please do not reproduce it or use it for commercial purposes.
