Our nightly story has always been that we tell about the day. He says, "Tell me about my day" and wants you to repeat line by line whatever he did that day. So tonight when we went in and climbed into the bed for our story he wanted to hear about how Aaron picked him up from school. "Tell me Mommy about Aaron coming to get me from school today"
I started to tell him the story and realized right away that he does not get that Aaron is my child. He realizes that he is his brother but doesn't understand that it also means that I am Aaron's Mommy.
I said to him "I am Aaron's Mommy too" and he immediately started crying and said, "Mommy, I dont want you to be Aaron's Mommy !" I tried to explain and he had more questions....
I guess I never really put much consideration into what Mikey thought of me and Aaron together but I realize now that he thought Aaron was "his" bubby and that was okay as long as it didn't mean that he had to share his mommy ! Funny how his little mind works. "Please don't ever be Aaron's mommy" he said.

"Please don't ever be Aaron's Mommy" he said
I am a scrapbook addict and I am the mother of a 21 year old named Aaron and a four year old named Mikey. I own and operate The Linkous House Bed & Breakfast in Williamson, West Virginia (www.thelinkoushouse.com) and I am married to Michael J. I have designed two templates for Hot Off the Press (www.paperwishes.com) and scrapbooking is what I am thinking about when I dont have to be thinking about something else. Give me a minute and my thoughts quickly run off to scrapbook-land.
