This has nothing to do with our house, but everything to do with my family. It just hit me tonight, that I've become "Mom." Not "Mommy." "Mom." When did this happen? Probably at least over the past year, but it just hit me tonight in the matter of fact way my not-yet seven year old said it. It wasn't the pre-pubescent "Oh, Mom" of my daughter. Just "Mom, can I get this?" "Mom" is my mom. I'm "Mommy." I no longer have babies. I'm "Mom." I'm old. All too soon I'll be "Mother" as in "Motherrrrr, you just don't understand!" Good grief!
UPDATE: I'm still "Mommy" to my little guy!
