“Thank you Mom!” She said it twice like that so I knew it wasn’t just a mistake. This was Wednesday. It is now Friday and that is who I have become. Mom. Not Mommy. Not Mama, although that one still slips in from time to time. Just Mom. When did this happen? How did this happen? I was prepared for Sofia to start preschool in a couple weeks. Somehow I was not prepared for her to give up calling me Mommy. I thought it would at least be a couple of years… at least until she went off to college!
