Quote from E-chan52
Dad - "Lo Dou"

Mom - It varies, depending why I'm calling her.
I mostly call her "ma-me." When I need something quick, "Mom" or just "Ma." I sometimes visit my mom at work and she doesn't want her co-workers to know I'm her daughter (long story) and so I call her "tai-tai."

You speak cantonese?

when i talk to them i say "tētis" as in --->"dad" and "māmiņa" as in ---> "mummy" smile
but when i talk to others about them (not family and relatives, close friends) "mummy" turns into "mom"(mamma), cuz hey, i'm already 18 and calling my mom mommy in front of others is kinda embarrassing...^^

Mom - Mami/Mommy when I want something or just want some love XD
Umma/Madre when I'm mad. It pisses her off. X'] ♥

I call my mom "Mommy," and my dad "Daddy," but when I'm talking about them in front of others (except for close relatives, friends, and siblings), I call them "Mom" and "Dad". embarrassed

I just call the Mum and Dad. When I was younger I called them Mama and Baba, or Ba for short. I don't call my parents in Chinese anymore now lol.

I call my mum "mamusia" (mommy) when I want something or just by name (well, "Baśka" from Barbara ^^'). I don't know why... Of course I call her "mum" or "mother" as well (especially in front of others). My dad is just "dad", "daddy" (Tatusiu give me somethiiiing) or "old man" and "father!" when I'm really angry...

Mama and papa. laugh

That's the Flemish way of saying it, and it's acceptable for adults to say that too. o.o Although, oddly enough, if you say that in the Netherlands, they think that you're still a baby calling for their dada or something. >.>;;
