I emailed my boyfriend's parents a photo of our latest sonogram, knowing that they've been excitedly talking about their first grandchild. Of course I get the response that they can't wait until the baby gets here and then I read his stepmother's signature -- "Mama Flo".
I actually like his step-mom. We may not have a lot in common, but she helped raise my boyfriend and raised his sister very well. I would love to take a few cues from the parenting they used in their home. BUT, my child is not calling anyone else Mama, even if there's a name after it. I know my child will be able to differentiate who we are but I also know that a six month old has limited speech and that Flo part of the name won't stick. I won't think it's funny if my kid calls another person "Mama."
Am I just pregnant and hormonal or does anyone else see an issue here? I'd really like some feedback before I talk it over with her.
