Here's my mom holding a fish while standing on the ice at my cottage.
I call her Mum. In english or french. And I call her "Yes Motherrrrrrr" when she's asking me to do countless chores for her :p

She's an awesome Mother... and I'm truely fortunate to have her. Her name is Ange-Marie, and she's practially a saint.

proper would me moeder but generally I call her moederka in response to her calling my Yeffka or kincha which are both technically derogatory in the specific dialect she speaks.

My dad used to call me 'rotte zak' which translates into something like "rotten bag", but I always assumed he meant it in love. RIP old man I hope your religion was wrong or you're burning in hell.

Maman or Mom.

I'd be curious to know what y'all call your grandparents.

I only have one and she is called Granny but on my other half's side of the family he has a Nanny.

Speaking of moms, I'm still pissed off at my mom for selling my car without permission and not sending me the money.


Damn you mother!!

oh norm. are you learning again?
the many names for mother came up yesterday at a friend's baby blessing (alternative to baby shower). i noticed that the sound of the letter 'm' was common among the different languages for the word 'mother'. i wanted to see how many other languages use that sound when refering to 'mother' and what better place to get a wide sample of cultures than here on tribe.
