The word "MOMMY"

I have been reading blogs and chatted on how worried mommies are when bb still doesn't call the magic word of 'MOMMY'.
We always tend to worry about why our bbs are not calling MOMMY and gets frustrated when they call other family members first and not mommy. When is my bb going to call me mommy? I was one of those worried and desperate mommies when Destinee didn't call me first. Every now and then, I would teach her by asking her to look at my lips and say ‘mom ..... my’ but she would stare at me with a blank face ….. sigh ….. But, finally came the day (I’ve forgotten when) when she uttered the word ‘Mommy’ and I was like ‘flying in the air’ and on cloud nine. She finally called MOMMY. Of course I was so happy and kept telling my frens dat Destinee finally called me Mommy!

But now, I sometimes prefer Destinee to stick on calling her pappy or kakak instead and stop calling me every now and then. Some of u must be thinking dat I must be out of my senses when I said dat – frustrated at not being called mommy and now want my gal to stop calling. Aiya, what kind of mommy am I?

Reason is dat I need a break from "mommy, mommy, play with me; mommy, mommy, come sing and dance with me; mommy, mommy, write with me; mommy, mommy, I want this or dat, mommy, mommy 'pau pau' (carry); mommy, mommy, feed me, I don't want kakak'; mommy, mommy, I want u to bathe me; mommy, mommy, I want to sleep with u ….. etc. and even when she wakes up every morning, she’ll be yelling for 'mommy, mommy', when I’m not beside her. Okay, everyone will start saying dat, those should be the work of a mommy, shouldn't it?
I am a FTWM and sometimes need to bring my work home to do. After a long and tiring day at work, sometimes I just would like to reach home, lie on the sofa, switch on the TV and relax, but this doesn't happen now. Once I reach home and when the door is opened, Destinee will come running and yelling 'mommy, mommy'. I'm sure everyone will say, dat is the most wonderful part, isn't it? I do agree too but dat doesn't end there cos she would be calling mommy every now and then the whole nite – when I am having dinner, watching TV, doing my work, having a relaxed time doing 'business' in the toilet and yes sometimes even in her sleep! When we are in the shopping mall, if she doesn't see me around (when she's with her pappy or kakak), she will be yelling for mommy too. 'Ah meh oi' (gosh), does she really miss me dat much?
I have this 'mommy, mommy' thingy ringing in my mind even when she's not calling me. Eeeeee …..
So, mommies out there who have yet to hear ur bb call u mommy, just be a little patient, there will come a day when u will feel on top of the world when they start calling u.
And beware, oso 'down' of the world (get what I mean?).

Wien can be distracted but not with Destinee. She'll always sticks to me like 'super-glue' even when I threaten to beat her. She doesn't get distracted easily. :(

Yeah, my friend told me the same thing. Her daughter call out to her "mummy mummy when are you coming out of the bathroom to play with me". No peace at all. Let's hope I will skip that phase.

Hohohoho... we are on the same boat hahaha...
just this morning, I was in the toilet, they were outside calling non-stop, despite my screaming and yelling "我要大便,不要吵我! ", then later in the kitchen *urgh*...

once there was a mother told me not to complain about the kids keep calling me, because they are a lot of mother can never hear their kids call them "mommy" because they are mute.

But then, can't I have a moment to rant?

Hahaha...Hubby one side complaining that Keith stopped calling him papa eversince he started with the word "MUMMY" and me on the other side, complaining ear pain. Everytime calling "Mummy, mummy, mummy"....Luckily in his dream I never hear him calling "Mummy" yet..only heard him saying "BEAR" (one of his favourite word).

Haha, thought u've oredi skipped Tim's phase but now u've to go thru again with Emily's phase. She started calling u mummy, rite?

Good boy, good boy, 'qwai'.

Ooops! Never thought of dat. Ya lor hor. Pity those moms who are deaf. And we are here complaining - *head down* But then again, this is life. Who never complains?

Haha, ur Keith got bored with calling papa and diverted to call mummy instead? Of course papa will be jeles mar.

Aiyo, Destinee will call 'mommy' even in her dreams. Her eyes will be closed but her hands will be searching for me and suddenly if she doesn't seem to touch me, she'll be yelling for mommy ... :(
