Please help me say what I am!

I'm a British mother, in Britain and I have to sign up for Edmodo if I want any communication with the monkey school, a British comprehensive. To create an account, I must state my relationship to the monkey boys.  The options are:

Dad
Mom
Other

I am tempted to tick 'Other'.  What would you do?

For the record, I would be happy to call myself a mom if I was in the US.  But I'm not and nor are my kids, their school or their teachers.

And, yes, I realise this is pretty minor.  Not like the time when the county music service decided that, in order to organise trumpet and violin lessons for the monkey boys, they needed to know phone me and ask if either of them was adopted.  The only answer they got was a stunned silence and 'Why on earth would you need to know that to arrange music lessons?'  I don't know which box she ticked after that, but they've been having the lessons ever since and nobody's asked again.

Spent much of yesterday at Addenbrooke's Ear Nose and Throat Clinic for spidermonkey's annual hearing and ear drum check. Ear drum is healthy (though it "will frighten your GP") and hearing is only very slightly down--exactly the same as last year. So all is well enough to continue leaving it alone. This is good.


We spent a lot of time sitting in front of a door with a sign on it that said

 
VESTIBULAR ROOM

I'm not sure why, but I know this made my inner etymologist very happy.
