I forgot to tell you something
that happened a few mornings ago.
Jenny brought me her little pink calculator
held to her ear
“Mommy, it’s Regan callin’.”
“OHHH!” I said,
half a phone call.
“Hello there, son!
How are you doing?
I know, we miss you too!
What’s on your plans for today? Swimming?
Wow, that sounds great.
Did you have breakfast yet? What did you have?
Ooooh, that sounds GOOD.”
When I got off the
from Jenny up to Kelly
began busting in like,
“What did he have for breakfast?”
For a moment they had really believed
I was talking to you,
and they wanted all the news.
I was just making that up,
“but what DID he have?”
I told them bacon
and an egg bake.
Hope it was tasty.
Oh, I love this! Such a precious momheart you have. Hugs…
I’m in tears… thanks for sharing that sweet relationship you’ve got with your children. Am headed to camp later today to pick up my son for homevisit…you made me miss him all the more. =)
Aw, beautiful, but Moms shouldn’t have to have fake conversations with their sons.
I couldn’t agree more!
“Yeah, but what DID he have?”….. That’s hilarious! ????
???? Made my cry but they were happy tears because of your wonderful relationship with your awesome blessings!
Every time you mention your son/boys’ camp, my heart aches and I tear up. I feel I could relate with you. But, we are at the ‘wondering if we will need to do this’ stage, the stage where I block my mind from thinking about it farther. I believe my son and your son are close in age.
I wish I could briefly communicate with you in private, but that’s probably not an option….
Of course it is an option, if email counts… I am available as sharizook at gmail.com. I am very sorry for your pain.
