My 2 year old son was calling me Mommy, until he recently observed that he was the only one. He now calls me by my nickname Missy because everyone else does. It's hard to explain to a 2 year old that to him I'm Mommy, but to everyone else I'm Missy and I certainly can't ask everyone I know to call me Mommy so my son will. I want to break him of the habit. I am afraid my daughter, who is not yet talking will pick up on it too. Any suggestions?
