Nice sentiment. I hope you don’t have to be a Star Wars fan to reap the karma. I was never one for science fiction although when I was young I liked to watch Captain Kirk and Spock do their thing. I liked the whole “beam me up” idea. I still do. How awesome would that be?!?! Imagine the possibilities!!
In an embarrassing situation? Get beamed away!
Someone annoying you? Beam away, or better yet, beam them away!
It’s endless really. So many possibilities for use. There have been countless times I have wished to be anywhere than where I am.
The invisibility cloak is also worthwhile, don’t get me wrong, but they have two very different uses. Hard to tell which one is more useful.
Being the proverbial fly on the wall has its own distinct advantages. There are situations where one would love to know what’s going on when people think you are not around.
There are other circumstances where it’s just better not only not to know, but to not even be around. That’s when getting beamed up would come in handy.
In either case one does not want to be present in their current presence. Happens a lot.
Need to overcome that. Being present is what it’s all about after all. Creating a life for yourself that you WANT to be present for.
So may the fourth be with you and may you all find yourselves exactly where you want to be.
Once you have a child you are forever a mother, forever someone’s mom. Is it possible to be forever a mommy though? Or in my case a ” mahmmee”.
Is there a time limit on how long your child can call you mommy? Does it become inappropriate at a certain age?
I have to be honest, I am almost fifty, my mother passed away five years ago and yet I still refer to her as mommy. It’s how I think of her.
The dictionary describes “mommy” as “ones mother( chiefly a child’s term).” Really? At what age do you stop being the child of the woman who is your mother???
Is it babyish? Immature? Silly sounding? I guess so. I also don’t care.
I refer to myself as mommy to my kids. They’re grown. Old enough that they don’t call me mommy. That’s ok. I’m not mad.
The other day I asked one child to tell the other child that mommy(me) said hi. I got called out on it. Mommy? Hahaha.
Yeah. Mommy! Just because I no longer put the spoon in your mouth I still feed you. I don’t put your shirt on over your head and gently glide your arms into each sleeve, but I bought that shirt and I may have washed it last week. You drive your own car but I’m still teaching you how to get from place to place.
Teaching your children doesn’t age out. Caring and worrying for them doesn’t expire.
Childhood goes by so fast. Before you can even take a breath your kids are go from infancy to first grade and if you take a nap you’ll wake up and they’ll be taller than you.
Let me say I’m your mommy. Let me hold on to the feeling of joy and wonder that I was given three such amazing gifts to mother.
What do your kids call you???
