for those of you with kids old enough that their friends talk to you

I always called my friends' parents Mr. or Mrs. (Kid's Last Name), and only realized years later that for some of them, that was incorrect (mothers who hadn't changed their names on marriage, whose kids had their father's last names). Now I'm starting to confront the issue of what to tell SteelyKid's friends who say, "Uh, SteelyKid's mom—?"

Ms. Nepveu seems kind of formal—my default association with people calling me that is judges and telemarketers—also hard to say, but Ms. Kate seems . . . weird. And I don't want to use Mrs./Ms. Orzel on principle, because I'm not.

What do/did you all do?
