They all still call us Mum and Dad, or some variation of such, at least some of the time. But even if they didn't and only used our names I still wouldn't fuss... Maybe that's weird of me?

my DS3 does that sometimes...not often enough to really make him stop, I think. I think he just thinks it's fun. Just like he now thinks it's fun to call everyone by their names backwards. aka: nana is anan and mama is amam, etc etc. ...sometimes, when i call him by his real name, he corrects me with the backward one: "no, mama i'm [insert backward name here]". what a silly kid.
