Endearing Mama Terms
In Response To: Telling Our Stories ()

Delani: Thanx for the memories.

I smiled when reading the term MaDear. In the neighborhood where I grew up I recall hearing MuhDear. Then some used terms like Big Mama, Lil Mama, Momsie among others.
I cannot recall ever hearing or using the term Mother unless it was Mother's Day.

Wondering what the distinctions are for the different terms of endearment? Are there others?
