Just by her first name. She's a down to earth kind of "gal" so no formalities.

BTW, she's about the best MIL you could ask for.

I definitely don't call her mom. I already have one. My wife does call my mother mom though.

I also call my MIL by her first name. She's really really great, but only my mom gets to be called mom.

Nasty B****

She is now my ex mother in law but when I was married to her son she made me so angry that I called her a nasty b**** on two separate occasions. Thank God those people are out of my life!

I never called my ex MIL by name. I never thought that much of her.
