when my eldest daughter was about four she suddenly started calling us by our Christian names. It didn't worry us in any way, so we said nothing. It went on for about a year, and then without any warning she reverted to Mum and Dad - it happened overnight.

She's thirty now, and hasn't any recollection of it at all.

The others have always stuck to Mum and Dad.

More importantly what do they call you when your not around, I got three 'new' children with my second marriage all called me dad fron day one, two children out of three from my first marriage call me dad, the third insists on 'old f**t'.

*Your majesty* when they want something.

*Oi you* when I want something off them.

Dad, for both daughters. If they consider I need telling off, it's father in a corrective tone.

Things are changing. My kids have always called me dad, even though I have said my name is Pete.

A Grandson used to call me Granddad Pete but now has started calling me Pete, which I don't mind.

He is at Uni training to be a Lawyer. At the moment he is on Work Placement with the Crown Prosecution Service. Unfortunately, my Partner is not very happy with that. I need to talk to him.
