Does your DP call you Mum?

My DP calls me 'Mum'

I ask him not to, as I'm not his mum.

I do feel like he just wants a 'mum' not a partner. We have two kids.
I morphed into the mum figure after I had kids.

Does anybody else have this?

PsychoPumpkin Wed 16-Aug-17 14:35:24

Nooo that's weird. He refers to me as mum to the kids, as in 'go and ask mum'

Cantseethewoods Wed 16-Aug-17 14:36:05

No but the kid's dentist does and it drives me nuts!!

inchyrablue Wed 16-Aug-17 14:36:40

Nope. That is just odd. He does refer to me as mummy to the DC, but I am.

BeachyKeen Wed 16-Aug-17 14:36:50

He does in a joking way, calls me "Mumsie" and does it in a funny drawl, not for real though.
I also call him "Mr Daddy Man" back.
What works for us though doesn't mean it works for you. Clearly you need to tell him to knock it off.

We call each other Daddykins and Mummykins.

We don't have children.

We have a very spoiled rescue dog.


KingJoffreysRestingCuntface Wed 16-Aug-17 14:38:40

No, I'd find that odd. I'd actually cringe.

Sometimes he calls me Mein Fuhrer. I suppose that's odder but I don't really mind it.

MaximaDeWit Wed 16-Aug-17 14:39:41

My DH calls me "mutha". It doesn't bother me but he gets pulled up on it a lot by friends and family

NorthumbrianGirl Wed 16-Aug-17 14:42:54

No, that would be weird. He'll call me Man to the kids e.g. "Where's mam?"

LiDLrichardsPistachioSack Wed 16-Aug-17 14:44:19

I hear dads calling their partners Mum or Mummy in public quite often. It makes me cringe!

LiDLrichardsPistachioSack Wed 16-Aug-17 14:44:57

Have you spoken to him about this OP?

PinkHeart5911 Wed 16-Aug-17 14:45:12

Only if he is talking to the dc.

PumpkinSpiceEverything Wed 16-Aug-17 14:45:57

We call each other "mummy" and "daddy" in front of DD.

maudeismyfavouritepony Wed 16-Aug-17 14:46:21

He doesn't do it when it's Judy us two but does in front of kids.

He constantly asks me questions, even about stuff he should know the answer to, like how long will it take me to drive to Birmingham? I don't drive, have never driven.

Or opening the fridge,can I have a yoghurt (referring to yoghurts I bought because he specifically asked me to)

I'm exhausted with his neediness.

HelloSquirrels Wed 16-Aug-17 14:46:59

To ds yes as in "give mummy a cuddle" or "say hi to mummy" but other than that no!

maudeismyfavouritepony Wed 16-Aug-17 14:47:24

When it's just us two, not Judy! confused

Greaterthanthesumoftheparts Wed 16-Aug-17 14:48:15

I cal DH Far (Danish for dad) when DSS is here but not otherwise. I also call his parents Farfar and Farmor when DSS is here by by their names otherwise.

Mrscropley Wed 16-Aug-17 14:49:41

Don't think I could have sex with a man who called me mummy or similar tbh. .

Changerofname987654321 Wed 16-Aug-17 14:51:25

Only if talking to our daughter. He has called me 'Mummy' a few times and received the death stare.

JuicyCake Wed 16-Aug-17 14:53:19

I've seen some of my friends address eachother as Mum / Dad in front of the kids.
My uncle calls all of his sisters Mum, when he's visiting, as they dote on him like my Granny did. He's not married.

maudeismyfavouritepony Wed 16-Aug-17 14:53:26

Every time he does it I say 'I'm not your mum, don't call me mum'

He says but you are their (the DC) mum confused

He jokes about him being my third child. Sometimes I say 'who looks after me? Me. I'm the only person who does any looking after. '

Both sets of parents are dead. I don't call him Daddy, unless to DC,'go and ask your Dad.'

maudeismyfavouritepony Wed 16-Aug-17 14:56:49

We don't have sex mrscopley Probaby because I am mum.

Actually, a whole host of reasons why we don't have sex 😞

Shoxfordian Wed 16-Aug-17 14:58:02

Doesn't sound like a relationship just like two people who have to parent together

Crunchymum Wed 16-Aug-17 14:58:10

Yeah we do, usually just around the kids.

IdentifiesAsASloth Wed 16-Aug-17 14:58:25

Only if we are around the children. E.g. He could say 'mummy, did you say dc could have a sweetie?'
Which does sound very odd now I've written it down confused
