At what age did you stop calling your DF 'daddy'?

Just curious because I have just seen my friend FB status going on about 'daddy' then I realised I still call my DF daddy too, in a fond way, I am 22

So how old are you if you still do and if not how old were you when you stopped?

unsure what DF is? Darling Father??

Not stopped yet - I'm 38 so I guess I probably never will!

Still call my father Daddy. I'm 28. Not something I'm intending to change.

About 10, iirc. All the other children at my primary school (in a very rough, inner-city area) said mum/mam and dad, and I was becoming a laughing stock.

Until I was 27, the day he died.

i never called my Dad - "daddy" but i remembered that my older friend when i was about 10 was calling her Dad "Daddy"...i was totally bowled over it as it was the first time, from my school friends, that i heard "Daddy"

I still call mine Daddy, although he's more often referred to as Grandpa now! I'm 38 and can't see me changing now, although I do sometimes refer to him as Pa, can't bring myself to call them Dad and Mum. My Ma called hers Daddy till the day he died at 91.

36, and counting.

I can still do the Dadddeeeeeee whine if I want a favour as well!

I still call mine Daddy. I would have been laughed at at school but I just couldn't change - Dad feels wrong, it's not his name!

Biglips Tue 07-Jul-09 21:54:14

my MIL still calls her Dad "Daddy" and she is 61 grin (she is very close to her Dad)

Sorry about your Daddy JJ

Was never allowed to say mummy or daddy because it was posh hmm

Both my teenage DDs choose to use the "posh" version and get the p* taken at school.
