Today at lunch, Carly asked me something and ended with the word "Mama." Caleb butted in, telling her matter-of-factly, "She's not Mama, she's Mommy."

To head off the arguing I knew would soon ensue, I set the record straight. I said, "I am Mama, or Mommy, or whatever you want to call me. I'm your Mother."

Short silence, followed by Carly asking Caleb, "She's our Mudder?!" The tone of her voice implied What!? We have a Mother TOO? Cool!

Sigh... Kids are the best entertainment money can buy! Just one large down payment at the beginning, a little more here and there for the next 18 or more years, and you have live-in entertainment, and memories to last a lifetime.
