Last night's adorable wonderful Parks & Rec (no spoilers here) had a moment where Diane's daughters called Ron "Daddy." There was a similar moment last week at the girls' school with Keegan Michael-Key.

On most TV shows where a COD is present, they make a point of showing the shitty dad being shitty before they throw away the pretense and the kid starts calling their mom's husband "dad." See: Manny and Jay on Modern Family. Parks & Rec apparently decided to skip this step entirely.


I love my stepdad. He's done a lot for my sister and I in terms of actually raising us. But my dad was a presence in our lives and he's the only one we call "Daddy." My mom's husband is "FirstName," and has been since I was 8 years old.

Blended family GTers, what do you (or your kids) call your stepparents?
