Mommy

Adrian... Mommy, I want to talk to you about something but I don't want you to be upset.

Me...Okay what's up?

Adrian... I am thinking that I want to start calling you "mom" instead of mommy. My heart sinks a little. All my friends call their mom's mom except for me. Are you mad?

Me... Well, to be honest I knew there would come a day when you would stop calling me Mommy. If that is what you want to do that is fine. I am not upset. Lying through my teeth.

Adrian... Ok... mom. OUCH! Gosh that sounds weird! Ooooohhhhhh.... I can't do it! I am just going to keep calling you Mommy!Smile

Me... You can call me whatever you want.

Hugs.

This makes me want to smile and cry at the same time. What a sweet, yet bitter, conversation.

That is so sweet. I'm all teary-eyed over here. My boys didn't announce that they were going to stop calling me mommy but it happened sort of gradually. Now, I've noticed my 9 year old will call mommy at home. I think he prefers it. It melts my heart every time. Don't you just love little boys? We are lucky.

I cant find where to email you so this is kind of OT....what template do you use for Blogger? I'm thinking of changing over to Blogger and I've found my background at Shabbyblogs but I can't find the template on blogger like yours...I want to be able to put pictures of Scarlett on the righthand side like you did for Eden.

Jake already calls me Mom sometimes. I think he must hear it at daycare, but he does it when he's in a hurry. LOL
