FMIL wants me to call her mom...

See...I had a little too much to drink at my wedding, and APPARENTLY went up to my in-laws and was like, OMG can I call you mom and dad now? (You know, I was a very happy drunk that night). So now I kinda HAVE to call them that, right? But it's been 1.5 yrs and it still feels WEIRD. Not bad weird, just weird. How embarrassing. I hope that one day in like 5 yrs it's not weird anymore and I just call them mom and dad without blinking an eye. What's the big deal, right?

Bless her heart...she is just so happy to have a wonderful girl in her son's life that she is just totally embracing you!
I too have a FI who is an only child. I love my FMIL, but I call her by her name and on occassion "mom" will slip out. She doesn't mind. Sometimes she tells me she loves me and I tell her the same.
I just think she is a godsend for me and I know I am truly blessed to be part of such a wonderful family. (My family is kind of coo-coo)
She does live out of state so maybe the "absence makes the heart grow fonder" line applies to my situation.
Do whatever feels right to you. Otherwise it will just be weird and she will sense it.
