My name is Mom
Have any of your kids called you by name yet? We have a special situation in our family. I was married before and Connor has a Dad and a Step-dad. He calls both Dad most of the time , but if he calls Brent by name we never make a big deal about it. So imagine my surprise when he looks at me yesterday and says " Melissa, I think it's time I grow up and get my own apartment. God told me that I needed to have my own rules now. So, I'm getting a job like Daddy". What?!! I very calmly look at him and say " My name is Mom , let me know when you find a job.". To which he replies " Maybe I'll ask my Dad for a new Mom at his house... I love you but your rules are too hard". If this is him at 4 years old I shiver to think of where we will be in another 4 years. Suddenly I feel the need for a stronger prayer life.
