Brittany - posted on 04/03/2013 ( 60 moms have responded )
My boyfriend and I have been in a serious relationship for quite some time now and from two or three months into our relationship his son(18 months old at the time) has called me mummy. At first it was strange as it was new to me having a new boyfriend and a new son aswell but now I love it and so does my boyfriend. The only problem is that my boyfriends family can't stand it. Every time he calls me mummy they quickly correct him ("no! That's Brittany!") and he is quite insistent that I am mummy and not Brittany.
Others have also noticed how quick they are to correct him when he says it and have approached me about it. These constant corrections are driving my boyfriend and I crazy, we feel he should call me whatever he feels comfortable with.
Any advice for me please!?
