Recently, my daughter Abrianna who is 20 months old, instead of calling me mommy or mama like she used to, she started to call me by my name Joey. It comes out crystal clear. I started to tap her mouth and say naughty. When I talk to her I ask, "Abrianna, who I am?" She replies you silly.
I am a single mom so all of my friends and family members call me by my name, and I think she doesn’t know any better. She is doing what she hears. But it makes me feel bad like she doesn’t know I am her mommy. I was wondering if this is normal? What should I do to make her start to call me mommy again?
