Mommy isn't Here.

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."
**sigh** "ok"

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.
Pin It!

That is hilarious! Very clever of you. It's funny how the kids responded to George.

So funny...that's why we have the House Fairy come to check bedrooms instead of just mommy... (I think that is the right address...)

Andrea said...

The oh so smooth way to the looney house is around the corner! Your kids will be doing the driving, don't you worry!

What a funny, funny post.

I once told my kids that my name wasn't mom anymore. They asked what it was and I told them I wasn't going to tell them. My oldest popped up with "I know what it is. It's Cranky."

Athena said...

Omg, this is too funny!

Misty said...

AHHHH! This is hilarious!

You know, my mom pulled this, but didn't have your imagination. (She also only had one kid: me.) After half a bazillion "Mommys" she told me her name was not 'Mommy". So I asked her what it was. She said, "I'm not telling you." HA! It worked!

That is so funny. So maybe you should be George more often.
Hang in there your doing great.

It's amazing what they remember, isn't it?

Sue said...

Boy, I feel your pain. Or maybe I should say, "Because of my boy, I feel your pain." It's bad when your 17 mo. old is tattling on his older brother and sister.

Gee, they learn early!

Loved your article about Barry Manilow, too. I even made my newlywed hubby take me to one of his concerts. What was I thinking?

Krissy said...

LOL EVEN better! I might have to use that. Thanks for the inspiration! lol
