So my son asks me for a cup of water. I go into the kitchen and give it to him. As he takes it, he replies, "Thanks Mom". I told him that he was welcome and as I started to do the dishes, it dawned on me. He called me MOM. Not Mommy. WHAT???
When did i get to this stage?
I thought about it. And this is always what i believed. From the time they can talk till about 2, they call you mama. From 2-12, they call you Mommy. From 13-30, they call you Mom. And from 31 till death, they call you Ma.
That's always how I thought of it. So how in the WORLD did my son advance at age 5, to call me MOM as if he were already in the stage where "mommy" would be embarrasing.
I don't know, I just want to know when my cute little son will call me mommy again. :*(
