I think it's pretty remarkable that there are two posts with this title and they are entirely unrelated. In this case I mean "mum" in the English sense.
Recently my 6 year old (the notorious mama's boy) has been going through something where he thinks he might want a different mom and he feels compelled to tell me this on the regular. He just needs to get it off his chest. Our daily exchanges go something like this:
Him: Mommy can I talk to you in private?
Me: Sure, babe.
Him: I was just thinking that maybe I want (insert name of real or fictional person here) to be my mommy.
Me: Ok. Well. Thanks for letting me know.
Him: You're welcome.*
For the most part I try to be completely unreactive. I know that's not a word. I don't want to make a big deal about it. I say things like "it's okay to have those thoughts" or "you really don't need to tell me everything you're thinking". But what I really want to say is you're welcome for pushing all nine (mostly head) pounds of you out and then carrying you around on my body for five years. Dick.
*he is really polite
