Ima, one m.
Same as my mother. She wanted it to be able to hear her kids easily in a crowded park
I live in Israel, so I turn at the park at any "Imaaa!!!".

OP reported her own post to request an addition to her poll. I added it then cleared the report. Reporting doesn't always have to be about someone posting something against site rules. -- imasinger, as mod

Why only one option?
Officially they call me Mommy...but it can be Ma, and sometimes Maaaaa!

Thank you imasinger! Smile

Maybe we can add another additional option for - “More than one of the above”? Only if it’s not annoying to edit the poll again. Thank you in any case!

My 2yo went through a phase where he thought “Mommy” meant “banana.”

My kids call me Mama. That's how I introduced myself to them when we first met and it stuck.
It's different and really stands out in my chassidish crowd but that's what I love about it.

Biological kids. Do you not introduce yourself to your newborns? How are they supposed to know what you look like Smile?

They know what I look like because I'm their mother & they live with me....

They live with me once I bring them home from the hospital but how are they supposed to know who I am the minute they're born? They haven't lived with me yet then and they haven't seen my face while I was carrying them. So I introduce myself to them the first time I hold them.
Clear now?
