What do your kids call you?
 
This is mainly for us folks with older grown kids - what pet names do they call you. My wife is generally addressed simply as "Mom" but also as "Guido" - because she sometimes has all the sympathy and personality of a Mafia loan shark/hitman. Generally they call me "Pops" although a close second is "Hungry Bear". One day when my oldest was about 12-13, she looked at me and said "You're about as grumpy as a old hungry bear." It was true and it stuck.

As far as what we call the kids, the oldest is simply Jennifer, middle daughter is "The Chief" (as she must be in charge, like her Mom), and my boy has always been "Bud" - even though his name is Brian...

My kids just call me "Mom" and I call them by their names. Their full names, no shortened versions of their given names.

That being said, I'm not sure what they call me behind my back. :D

I am dad mom is mom. My daughter is Kaitlyn or Katie. My son is BrendEN don't screw up his name it pisses him off. I call him Short Round because he is the shortest one in the house. He is also spunky like Short Round from Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom.

In my house it's Daddy and Mother or Mama, Grandpaw's kids called them Papa & Mama, the other GrandDad referred to them as Pappy & Mammy.......
A couple of my Grandkids nicknamed me"Pappy" I like that !

All 3 call me "Dad" but the youngest sometimes call me "Da-da"

hah
 
Depending on the day I'm either "Daddy", "Birdie", "Dad"... and sometimes we'll speak very formally to each other: "Yes, Father." "No thank you, Father." "Daughter, please come here." But it's just a joke on account on my dad who expected that formality as a matter of course.
