My Toddler Calling Me by my Nickname
Maco, my little one, actually calls me 'Mama'. But one time, I'm not sure where she heard it from, she started calling me 'Cui' -my nickname. Well, my nickname's really Coi but my little one can't speak clearly yet, so.
I remembered when the first time she called me 'Cui' was when someone talked to me, and she repeated it not knowing who 'Cui' was. But then, our househelp laughed and said repeatedly "Cui ang tawag sayo!" (She calls you Cui). I was disappointed of course.
I usually tell our house help that it isn't nice to encourage my daughter on doing something that isn't nice whenever I notice that she's encouraging her. Well, not really encourage, but she would just let my little one be a brat instead of stopping her. To be fair though, I think our house help was afraid that I would be angry if she'd scold my child. So, yeah. I have nothing against our house help, my little one calls her Lola (Grandma) and she's really nice and sweet. It's just that, she's a Lola, and well - Lolas spoils their grandkids.
Just earlier, about an hour ago, she was shouting 'Cui'. But I did not respond. And just right now. She tapped my right leg and said Cui. Idk why but it's making me sad, really. :(
I even told my husband to call me Mama also so that Maco would do the same. Hopefully this works! ;) I don't want to hear her call me by my nickname anymooorreee
