Being Mama

Our oldest grandson Thomas is nearly four years old and is as curious as ever. On a brief road trip he began to touch My Beloved’s purse. He calls her Mama (his mother is “Mommy”).

“Are you supposed to be touching Mama’s purse, Thomas?” his Mama asked.

His head jerked up in surprise, and he pulled his hand from the purse. Thinking quickly, he announced, “I’m the Mama” and again began to reach for her purse.

Without skipping a beat, My Beloved started asking him a barrage of questions and making statements: “Mama, may I please have a cookie?” “Mama, I’d like some of that!” “Mama, Mama, Mama!” “Mama, I don’t like that!” “Mama…”

At this point Thomas had had enough. He let out a big sigh and said, “I was only kidding.” He sat back and didn’t touch her purse for the rest of the trip.

With Love,

Russ
