After church today my oldest son, Liam told me that he wants to "switch mommies." Jesse confirmed that I had heard correctly and informed me that he had been saying that lately. I then asked him who he would like to be his mama instead of me and he said in an ooey-gooey voice, "Miss Francine." Francine is a friend of mine that is at my MOPS table and goes to our church. She is a wonderful woman and mom to three adorable little boys. Liam thinks that they have the best toys at their house and constantly wants to go over to Miss Francine's. I thought it was just about the toys but apparently he wants something more.
After I said, "Oh! My! Ok..." Liam says, "I want her to play with me and put my pajamas on and be my babysitter." (Picture that said in the same ooey-gooey voice).
I asked, "Well if we are switching things around, who's mom will I be?" Silence... "Well, I guess that I am still Baby Finn's mom, huh?"
Liam rather sharply answers, "No. You won't be Baby Finn's mom."
Well, I am not sure how I feel about all of this... It is one of the most hilarious things that he has come up with for sure but it did sting a tiny bit. I mean, I work hard as a mother! Who does he think my life revolves around? Yeah!
I then remembered all of the times that I have told family, friends, and even acquaintances that I would love it if they could take Liam for the afternoon. I would totally be fine with that. No seriously, take him... I guess that I am getting what I had coming to me.
