    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.

    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.

    Let's see...
    As an empty nester, all I hear is barks, whimpers, yelps, etc...

    Then the dogs start making their noises.

    I'm pretty sure "meow" could be translated roughly as jackass when coming from my kitties.
    As in "Jackass, bring me more food, STAT."

    Dad. I also call my children by their first names, never shortened versions or nicknames.

    I know the feeling Jack. I've tried to tell them to piss up a rope and then they threaten me with the Wrath of Mom.

    My wife is a seriously tough lady but the kids learned to "point" her many moons ago...

    My son calls me Daddy and his mother Mommy. Perhaps when he gets older that will change. He has several nicknames I use, but nothing bad, of course.
    I'm sure Sarah Brady and the like call me all kinds of names for pictures of him like this...
