I'm sure this has happened to some of you other moms out there, but it's still funny.
I was sitting next to the tub the other night waiting for my boys to get done with their bath. Acutally, if I left it up to them, they'd be in there all night. What I was really waiting for was them to get enough play time in before I washed them and made them complain about getting out. So my mind was not on full attention mode. As much as I LOVE that they'll play Spiderman and Turtles all day long....... I don't really care to know the details EVERY TIME. Like: "MOM -- Raphael can't get Spiderman 'cause he gots bubbles all over him." -- or -- "MOM -- Ninja Turles has to swim fast in the water before Shredder gets their pizza." When Griffin narrates for me, I kind of just nod my head most of the time. But this particular night, that wasn't good enough. As I was staring off into space, my response to him saying, "Carolyn" was immediate. I looked over but don't recall what he said to me after that because I was in shock. Not that he knew my name.... but at how happy I was to have my identity back...... if only for a moment.
