Mission Failed!

Something embarrassing happened on 24.02.08 (our registration day). We were having dinner and my FIL came back. As usual, I greeted him as Uncle. Then he jokingly responded that I should acknowledge him as Pa rather than Uncle right? Ah................my goodness! My cheeks were flaming red. How I wish there is a hole for me to sneak into immediately. ;p

So when do you all start calling your PIL? I asked around my friends who has married & most of them called their PIL after their wedding ceremony only. The registrar's piece of advice still floating in my mind. I analyzed it & I think he is correct. Legally, I'm Hubby B's wife & his family is my family now. It makes sense for me to acknowledge them as Pa & Ma.

But then, I have a question here. We both called our father as 'Pa'. BB called his mum as 'Ma' while I called my mum as 'Mi'. So we have no problem to address our mothers. But for our dads, I think I will address FIL as 'Papa'. How is BB going to address my father? Hmmm.... Will ask him later.

It is already the 2nd week of our registration. I still have not taken up my courage to call my Parents-in-law.
I failed my mission again & again. Hopefully my mission can be completed by this week. BB teased me that my mouth is keeping a gold bar. Huh! how dare you? Don't let me caught you later.
