How can you not feel like a Mommy with all of these precious little ones?
Pamela at Something Wagging This Way Comes, had a post a while back about what name your dog refers to you as. I remember cringing when someone refer to me as "Mom" in reference to my dogs. I never thought of my dogs as kids and I communicated with them on an animal level. And to be honest, I found the name a bit perverse.
Then when Silver got pregnant and had those ten puppies something in my heart changed. There was something to being a new Grandma and it seemed appropriate to be called Mommy to all of these new lives that we were so blessed with. Now I find the name to be full of love and honor and will gladly be called Mommy any day. I mean really, how could I not with that love bursting through ten little hearts? :)
