  • Co-wives, Are you Hala or Auntie?

    Salam sisters, quick question. So say you and your co-wife have children, what do her children call you? Curious :)

      Massi means maid where I'm from. =/ Like the one who cleans your house and stuff. But, apparently, in India, it means aunty. Strange.

      I think I've heard bari ammi or choti ammi

        Wouldn't they call her 'mum' considering she's their step-mother?

          How'd the mums tell who the kids are calling?
          Or they can just number them. Mum Uno and Mum Dos.

                eg : ummi khadijah, ummi a'esha, ummi hafsah, etc

                  not seen this in our family. they use one of the 3 words I gave above.

                  badi ammi normally is used for the paternal grandmother.

                      Why do some kashmiri's remove the k from words e.g hala instead of khala. (My friend is from mirpur and she says hala) :-)

                            That's kind of disrespectful, I think, to call someone older by their name.
                            Well, I'm not sure about other cultures, but it is in the subcontinent.
