Identity Crisis

I'm having a crisis of identity. See it all began when I was reunited with Denis and started using "Mommy" to describe myself. I'm sure I'm not the only one who says such things as "That's Mommy's. Or here let Mommy do it". Fine, that's easy, I am a mommy, I'm saying it to my son, everything is fine and dandy.

Until I went back to work. I never realized that I my Ms name when talking about myself in the classroom too, but I do. And one day I heard myself say 'mommy' instead, oh no.

And then my sister came home for the Christmas. Now with Kathryn I use Sha sha, Kathryn never learned to say Michele, instead it has always been Sha or My Sha (my favourite). Kathryn, hearing Denis and my brother refer to me as Mommy, started to call me Mommy too.

Well, the true crisis began yesterday when I was getting Denis ready for school. He wanted to wear his knapsack (which he calls a mapsack). He then declared that he was Dora. And then, then he decided I was Boots.

Who the heck am I anymore?


Michele said...

Oh no, tonight he said I was his Daddy. LOL

Daddy? Where did that come from? I hear you...for years before kids I was known around as "Dawson's mom", now I am "Ciera's mom" or "Tienna's mom"......and I would not have it any other way! I love when the kids call me "mama", but Ciera now calls me "mom" or "mommy" and now sadly Tienna calls me "mom" or "mam", but if you ask her who I am she will say "mama!"
