While he still calls me Mama when he's sad or needing me, in normal conversation he just refers to me as Mom. Like, "Hey Mom, look at this!", or like, "Hey Mom, I just totally did my taxes" and then I'm like, "WHAT DID YOU JUST CALL ME?" Because obviously it's offensive. Okay no. But I'm his MAMA, damnit!
Sometimes I try to re-train his brain by asking him what my name is, in which he always replies, "Mama!" but then WHY DOES HE CALL ME MOM LATER? I dunno. I'm torn up over this.
Calling me Mom represents how much he's starting to not need me. I know he still needs me obviously, but still. His baby-ness is showing up less and less... For so long I wanted him to grow up and now I can honestly say I've reached a point where he can just stop growing. This is my blissful "puppy" stage.
