Mother. Yes, that's what I am but usually I think of myself as "Mom" or "Momma". For some reason, Ella has taken to calling me "Mother" lately. Not "Mom". Not "Momma". M-O-T-H-E-R.

It sounds, well, rather formal coming out of an almost 4-year old's mouth. I'm not sure why she is doing it, but it makes me want to laugh each time she says it. I wonder if it's going to stick or if it's just a phase. I guess time will tell.

She just calls him Dad or Daddy. She does not call him Father usually. It's just me that gets the formality.
