15 month old mindee has started calling me mummy. I can see why as I have a 2 year old ds who obviously calls me mummy but what should I do? I would hate for her to do it in front of her mum or dad as I can see that would be upsetting. Do I ignore it, or correct her everytime? Am new to cm and could do with some advice.
Totally normal. Pretty much every mindee I've ever had has called me mummy, my friend is called 'nanny' as she looks after her grandchildren too. I just say 'mummy is at work, I'm looneytune' and point to myself each time, that's all you can do really. I woudn't ignore myself.
I have mindees who do this too! I usually say 'mummy will be back soon, but 'SB' can help with that if you want me to' or something similar.
My dd is used to be saying my name now that every so often she will call me that instead of mummy. She think it's so funny! I don't The fact she's started calling me 'mum' and not 'mummy' is enough for me to cope with at the moment
