Dear Queenie,

  My husband’s mother is a wonderful mother-in-law and I love her, but she wants me to call her “Mom” which is what I call my own mother and I don’t think it would be right.

  Queenie, what do you think?—Daughter-in-law

Dear Daughter-in-law,

  I think your mother-in-law wants to feel close to you and it would not hurt you to have two “Moms” in your life. However, if you are not comfortable with this, try to find another similar name for her, such as “Mama” or “Mommy”. And be glad that she wants to be on such good terms with you.
