Daddy, not Daddy

You know that awkward moment when you call your Daddy Dad. 

 

I keep doing it not meaning too. It's like, my brain wants to shorten it.

 

.___.;;; Why does this happen. 

 

My real life Dad is my Daddy,

My boyfriend is Daddy.

 

Now I'm getting stuff all mixed up.

 

Does anyone else do this?

I can't say so because I've only recently started calling him that... but occasionally I will think that in my head and feel mildly awkward.

Yes! We just laughed about it, it's not a big deal :) But it is a little awkward :)

Laughing is really nice. I just feel really awkward about it, so I get all fluster. haha.

For me it's the opposite. My man is my Daddy, and my father is "Dad". I even try to separate it further by calling him "Faja" primarily instead (a nick name I've used since i was little). I cringe internally so hard when I accidentally call him Daddy. Freaks me out, especially since I haven't done it since I was little.

I don't call my father Daddy at all. I haven't in a long time. But he uses Daddy like on all my birthday cards and stuff and calls me princess. I cringe internally because he's not Daddy, he's Dad.

I call my biological father Dad and my wife Daddy. But when we were visiting this last Christmas, my Dad handed me something and I was in little space, so my response was "Thank you, Daddy!" He just said "you're welcome," but Daddy was doing her best not to crack up. XD oops >.<

I've never had a "Dad", I've had a "Father" but he is no longer in my life and I don't want him to be. Calling my Daddy "Dad" slips sometimes, but I often call him Dada or Papa. As long as you don't have "Dad" and "daddy" in your phone as two separate contacts, I don't see anything wrong with it. I've known a couple littles that have mini heart attacks when they think they sent a message to the wrong person.

I've always called my Dad Daddy, it's just the way I am. :3 He has always been called that and he always will be called that.

I probably would be like "Daddy (to my father) that wasn't too you"  I don't really text my biological Daddy, I call him if I miss him and my family. I tend my Daddy (So) often. I also have them labeled from with their first names on my phone.

My father was abusive and so I never had the problem of seeing "daddy" as a term of endearment towards him. I just called him by his name, so when it came time to call my boyfriend daddy it feels completely natural (:

I feel really awkward and a little weird. LOL I get so frustrated. Daddy laughs at me. 

In the nice way.

Yeah we have barely started to try to get comfortable with it yet. I do sometimes worry one of us will say something about diapers in public though :x

I've always called my adoptive father Daddy. It's a southern thing. He passed away when I was a teenager. I still refer to him as Daddy when I talk about him. The title means something very very different when I call my boyfriend Daddy. Completely different feelings when I'm saying it to Daddy. It is a little awkward for Daddy when I refer to my father as Daddy and call him Daddy in the same sentence. I try not to do that but it happens occasionally. Beyond that, my biological father is in my life. He's not even Dad. It has happened though that I've asked Daddy for something without thinking around my bio dad and they've both responded. So. Much. Awkward. Soooooooo much. -shudder-

It happens! It's really awkward, but it happens.

 

My real father isn't in my life, so I don't have that issue, but I've accidently called Daddy, Dad a few times.

 

On the rare occassions we switch, he has also mistakely said Mom instead of Mommy, which was weird too, but we laughed it off.

I slipped and called my dad daddy one time and I hope it never ever happens again Im so glad I was saying goodbye to him as it happened because I'm pretty sure I visibly cringed.

 

Dad has always been dad. Only Daddy is Daddy. Lol

I call my bio Dad "Papa" but when I was little I called him Daddy so sometimes it slips and then it's kind of awkward but not too bad. I haven't called my Daddy 'Papa' yet on accident but I'm sure it'll happen.

I stay in little space so often I forget that my biological father is labeled as "daddy" in my phone from before I became a little and I get happy when I see it and then I remember it is not my "daddy". Giggles sheepishly.

I feel weird sometimes calling my fiance "daddy" accidentally in my head lol so I couldn't ever call him "dad"

as far as my biological dad, I don't remember ever calling him "daddy" either. the name "daddy" has always been a weird thing for me and makes me really uncomfortable saying it for so many reasons. but either way, I don't have such a great relationship with my bio dad anyway and literally the only reason I ever visit him is to see my little sister so I'm not too worried about mixing it all up lol

I don't have a problem with it in my own thoughts and words. I considered myself "too old" to call my father anything but "Dad" when I was about 9 or 10 and never called anybody Daddy except for my Daddy (in the DDlg way) ever since. But it is awkward when someone else unknowingly uses the word "daddy" to refer to my father. I have a moment of thinking "How did you know that about me?" and "When did you talk to Daddy?" before I realize they know nothing about Daddy and are talking about my father.

I call my bio dad, daddy still to this day. It's total different feelings and like someone said earlier it's a southern thing. Almost everyone here calls their father daddy. I feel a bit awkward tho sometimes, but usually I just giggle about it. c:

It doesn't really happen with me but it's bothersome when people call my father Daddy. An example would be "Oh look your Daddy's here!" Nooo >.< It wireds me out! 

I used do call me Ex Papa, Dada, and Daddy. Dad has never been in my vocabulary

I've never called my father "daddy" but I don't really think he'd really notice if I did. My advice would be to just blow it off like it didn't happen (: No biggie!

 

Yeah, my daddy (my significant other) has brought up how I'd feel about shortening 'daddy' to just 'dad'. I was kinda like, "Uh... I mean... I can't think of a reason why not... but I probably won't." Haha. 

 

My favorite stories are the ones where the girl will be having dinner with her boyfriend and her father and she'll say, "Daddy, can you pass the salt?" and they'll both reach to grab it. Those crack me up everytime and seems way more awkward than anything listed above.
