Playing house

Alex and Claire have started playing house lately. Like all the time. Which is fine. Claire is the mommy and she has a doll baby. Alex is the baby and he also has a doll baby. Which is weird. Not sure how that works. He likes to carry his baby around in a fisher price barn. It fits just right. Or the "trunk" of the scooty car.
The really distressing thing is that he listens to her as the mommy more than he listens to me. And when we are sitting at the dinner table, he will ask her for more milk, which she obligingly pours. But when he asks her for more milk, he calls her mama. I've tried to assert that I am mama and she is sissy or DeeDee. He doesn't really listen. But it is cute watching them play house together.
