Still Mommy

Charleigh comes in to the Kitchen and announces "Mother, I'm not going to call you Mama anymore I'm just going to call you Mom". As she ran out of the room the lyrics "Another one bites the dust" ran through my head.

Kaleb once made this announcement and for a year now I have been either "Mom" or "Mother". While it seems like no big deal it is the beginning of more to come. How soon till they don't want hugs and kisses in front of their friends or their embarrassed when I hold their hand to cross the street.

While still contemplating these upcoming changes, not 30 seconds after her announcement my Charleigh races into the kitchen: "Mommy, look at my picture I drew!"
Ahh ha! I'm still Mommy!
