Things have been busy for the listen lady family lately. Cardin was re-evaluated for continued speech services, we had another spectacular wedding to attend, and my nephew Liam made his arrival in this world. It’s been a whirlwind of a week and in that time Cardin has decided to change my name.
Listen Lady, I’m not really sure how or why it started; she has always referred to me as mommy. Certainly better than ‘Hey Whorebag’ or ‘Woman who I’ve deemed my slave’, but in the last week she’s changed and will now only call me “Momma”. It’s only a slight change, but I’ve grown so accustomed to the name “Mommy” that hearing anything else sounds wrong to my trained ear.
She is in love with asking questions lately and being inquisitive. I hear at a constant rate “Whatcha doing Momma?” or “Whatcha got Momma?” as I make dinner or shuffle through the days mail. I can’t help but wonder if it’s a phase. Will “mommy” return or will we jump straight to “mom”?
I suppose that I’ll settle for any of the above as long as she steers clear of “Mum”. I’m not 100 years old, nor am I a flower, do not categorize me as either kid.
