Took my sons over to my (their) aunt’s house yesterday.
Kids have always referred to their aunt as “Aunt Krissy”. Krissy has just recently married. Kids have met Frank before but they haven’t spent a lot of time with him. Still getting to know him basically.
Last night I guess the kids started to feel a little more comfortable around Frank. So by default, the kids started to refer to Frank as “Uncle Frank” (common in my family)
Apparently, Frank didn’t like this and he told my kids that he’d prefer if they refer to him as “Mr. ‘Name’” or “Sir”
I guess I can kind of empathize how having some strange kids refer to you as “uncle” might be a little awkward, but still, I think he’s being a little uptight about it.
What do you guys think?
