    Yeah, it's probably something he's called him for a long time. Ronald Reagan used to call his wife "mommy." Each family has its own little quirks.

    Yes it's weird. If he was a girl it'd be different entirely. I guess every family is different.

    What does it matter whether it is "normal"? It's nobody else's business.

    Names of endearment in families can be all over the place, to not understand this. Is the weird thing. To not have to in ones home, is a sad thing.

    Some families are just more affectionate than others, if this type of thing is the only “strange” thing you’ve seen I doubt there’s anything suspicious going on

    Personally, I am stuck on him asking “are mom at home”? He actually said “are”?

      It could just be a typo, or maybe either the question asker or father isn’t a native English speaker. Maybe they just threw it in there for laughs. Language is a social construct anyway. It’s not a big deal, my friend. 😉
