I notice some women using the word "mom", and many others using "mum". So now I'm curious about where everyone's from.

I'm from the United States...SoCal, to be exact...lol

I'm from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and though we spell it m-o-m - myself and my family (pretty much everyone I know) - pronounce it m-u-m. Sometimes my daughter, who is 13 months, will call me mom-mom (mum-mum).

My kids called me "Mum" or "Mummy" but I presumed it had
something to do with our being from the Greater Boston area of
Massachusetts and having a great grandmother who was from
Birmingham, England.

And I'm Swedish living in Belgium, my daughter use mamma or mummy depending on which language she is talking (Swedish or English). Once she starting to learn French, I guess maman will be added to the mix as well. Love it that we are from so many different places . . .
