Mummy or Mamie

Hugh with his Mummy, not Mamie

The French word for "Mummy" is "Mamie". When my kids are calling "Mummy" with their Australian accents it sounds extremely like the French Mamie.
Of course I have been mistaken for the kids' grandmother before, after all I am old enough to be their grandmother...
But at least in France strangers could be excused for the mistake.
Hugh is now quite good at saying "Maman" (mummy in French) so it should now be clear that I am his mother.
