Happy Mother's Day

A few days ago, Number One comes  back declaring :

"I don't want to call you mama, anymore. I'm going to call you mum."

But why, I whine.

"Mama's such a baby word," he says.

'But you are my baby', it was on the tip of my tongue to say.

It wasn't as easy as he envisioned though. After you've called someone a certain name your whole life, try using another name. It just feels weird and alien on the tongue. By evening, he was reverting to 'mama'. But we struck a deal that he could call me mum when we were in public if he wanted to.

Turns out everyone in his class was making Mother's Day cards for their mothers, and he was too shy to put 'mama' on his card.

On that note, here's a picture of me :
