mercedes- while i can see why you would feel uncomfortable with the little girl calling you mommy,i think it's perfectly normal for children, girls imparticular, at that age to play that game. many times that i have babysat for girls around 4-8 they seem to want to play that. even when there home life seems perfectly normal they still want to play it. last weekend my sister and her boyfriend and the boyfriend's daugher came down to visit me. while they were at my house the girl and me were painting each others nails and stuff like that. all of a sudden she wanted to play the mommy daughter game. at first this made me a bit uncomfortable, but i remembered all the other little girls i have babysat that do the same thing then i was able to relax.
