    Hey guys,
    We are in the same boat.
    We were thinking Mum B (me) and Mum C (For Candice)
    ????????

    I like those ideas... same but with the initials to differentiate... Almost makes me wish I was doing this with a partner - as it is I'll just be Mum and any future partner (serious enough to be introduced) unless seriously super-serious would just be called by the first name I think.

    As two Sal's, we can't go with initial mum's, so are going with Mum for tummy mummy sal and Mama for other mum Sal......
    Confused? We hope squishy won't be,........
    On the plus side, our little nephew is three and very clearly knows the difference between Sally ( tum mum ) and Sal ( me ). To him, they are two totally different names because that's what all the family calls us, he doesn't 'get' that Sal is a shortened version of Sally.......so if he can get the subtle difference, I don't see why a new baby won't very clearly recognise the difference between Mum and Mama or Mum T and Mum C etc....

    That's what my partner wants to do... she likes the Mama T and Mama B that they use on The L Word. I'm still not entirely convinced, but I haven't been able to come up with a better option.

    I didn't even realise that was what they had done on the L Word when we decided to do that - i hadn't seen it at that stage lol.

    Who knows... we might change our minds by the time it happens, and come up with something else (but I like muma J and muma K)

    At the moment I'm Mumma, or Booby Mumma and Shel is Mummy.

    Don't be worried about confusion, kids will work it out, and work out how to call you
