Has your child ever called you by your first name?

The other day my two year old son George went up to my husband and said ‘Doug, can I have an apple please?’ We turned to look at each other incredulous, trying our best not to laugh.

Looking very puzzled Doug turned to George and asked, ‘Who’s Doug?’ and to that George replied ‘Douglas Walter’… I mean, duh!

Funnily enough, this isn’t the first time he has called his daddy by his first name ‘Doug’. When he was about 18 months old he heard me calling Doug from the bottom of the stairs and since then started copying me. We found it hilarious! It’s amazing the information they absorb.

I don’t know about you but I never remember my mum and dad calling each other by their name. I guess that must mean I nag my husband a little too much!
