It irks me no end when people say, "ask your mom" or "mom...fill in the blank." I will likely correct you every time, at the risk of sounding like a raving mad woman. Really, I will.
My baby has started picking it up and often calls me "mom" now and I HATE it! I try to breathe, get past it, and not correct him every time. But it's oh so sad for me to not hear mommy.
So seriously get over it Kristi, right?
WRONG! It's my BABY! I want to be his mommy as long as I possibly can. Think about it... We are only the focus of our children's lives for such a tiny period of their lives. I want to stretch it out as long as I can.
Mommy sounds innocent and like he needs me. Mom sounds like he's parting ways and becoming independent.
He's 3. Call me mom at 30. hee hee
I get it, I have issues. I'm under no illusions there. My poor guy will probably have to go to therapy for this but hey... we have kids to fill holes in our lives right? JUST KIDDING!
Maybe I will strike up a deal with him. He can call me mom when he can cook and clean for me. -OK now I'm starting to sound more like Mommy Dearest.
Happy MOMMY's Day!
