It's official. My little baby isn't a baby any more. I know he's been a toddler for some time now and he will celebrate his 2nd birthday in a matter of weeks. But yesterday he called me Mommy and it just broke my heart. To him, I was always Mama. And every time he said Mama, it just melted my heart. (Even when it was repeated over and over and over and over.)
Why is this such a heartbreaker?? Because Mommy is just one step closer to Mom. And then closer to Mother. And then he will soon be a teenager and calling me by my real name or what ever word comes to mind, or maybe even nothing at all. Whoa....slow down time. Please!!! Because I just can't handle my little baby to grow up so fast!!!
