A couple we know, Jen and Amory, had boy/girl twins.

Amory is Mommie, Jen is Mama. If it had been the other way around, *I* wouldn’t remember.

An MtF trans friend had a bit of a conundrum after she transitioned: how to describe herself WRT forms and school stuff. “Guardian” seemed to be the best choice. How her daughters refer to her in talking with others, I haven’t a clue. I should ask her.
