"Oh Mother"

I had to post about the most recent matter in my life as of the new name. The past few weeks, my 5 year old has been calling me 'mother'..."Oh mother...", "Can I have ice cream, mother...". What is that about? I'm not really sure how to take it. Most of the time I dread hearing 'mommy' because it's usually followed by screaming. This whole 'mother' debacle has got me missing it. Even though I want to think of myself as something other than a mommy all the time, there is something reassuring about my little girl saying "I love you, mommy".
