I was just reading thru some blogs... and I honestly cannot remember whose blog it was (I think my age kicked in) and their child now calls Mommy... Mom.
I remember when that happened to me... with both boys!! At first I was Mama... and loved all of those moments - but they were young and couldn't really comprehend a whole lot! Then Mommy - I felt so needed and such an IMPORTANT part of their lives! They KNEW who I was and what I meant to them! AND to be honest I thought I would be MOMMY up til they were in 5th or MAYBE even 6th grade!! BUT NO... for Rich, I think it was Kindergarten when all of a sudden he called me Mom... just MOM... OH MY! I waited a few days just to see if it was a fluke thing... NO it wasn't!! I felt so NOT NEEDED!! =( With Tim, it was first grade... when he first called me Mom... I just stood there!! Thinking isn't this TOOOOO early??? WOW! I felt like Mommy to Mom was just a blink... the years go by to fast!
For me now... I HOPE that Bup is forever! If it isn't... it is ok... for NOW... it is WONDERFUL and I am enjoing every MOMENT!
