It was one of those days when the children screaming "Mommy!" were getting on my very last nerve.
"Mommy! he's touching me!"
"Mom! I had it first!"
"Mommy, I want a cookie!"
"Mom, It's HIS turn to feed the dog!"
"MoOom!! He took my seat!!"
"Mommy, are you going potty in that Baffroom?"
I couldn't take it anymore.
My eye began to twitch.
I decided I was no longer Mommy.
"Mommy?" called the Little-Foreman-in-Pink from her car booster-seat for the 7000th time.
"Mommy isn't here" I said.
"Mommy... your right there." she giggled.
"Nope.. mommy needed a vacation.. My name is George, Nice to meet you."
"Oh, Hi George!... can you stop at McDonalds? I'm firsty and want a drink."
"Nope.. we are on our way home and your mommy told me you can have a drink there."
This went on for the rest of the day.
I was now George.
The funny thing is, they actually seemed to listen to "George" better than they did "Mommy."
This first George appearance happened about 4 months ago.
Just this morning I was in the bathroom doing what one does in the bathroom.
A small voice called me from the other side of the door.
"Mommy? what you doing in there?"
"I'll be out soon.. go away" I replied.
I couldn't help but laugh.
