    I would be MOM

    No matter where I live, I would still be mom.

    I just chalk this up to an ex-pat wishing she was back in the US!

    I would explain to the class that everyone has different names for special people. Look at all the different names for grandparents: nana, grandmother, nanny, nonna, ya-ya, and my all time favorite from a now 36 year old nephew...kong gong! Yep, got that speech impediment taken care of, but still calls his grandmother that!

    Mom and mum are nicknames to Mother.
