Say My Name, Say My Name

"Hey, Mommy. Your name is Laura"

"Yes, Griffin."

"Your name is Laura."

"That's correct.""

::uncomfortable silence::

"Laura."

"Yes, Griffin, but you call me 'Mommy.'"

"But I think I want to start calling you 'Laura.'"

"No, you call me 'Mommy.'"

"Laura."

"Perhaps I should get my name legally changed to 'Mommy,' that way no one can call me Laura or Mom or Mother..."

"OR MOTHERFUCKER. That way no one can call you 'Motherfucker' either!"

Then he could change his name to "smart-ass" Oh...the possibilities for fun family names never ends does it?!

It kind of freaks me out when Max says my name. Which I suspect he does once in a while just to freak me out.

oh, it would be sooo choice for you son to look up to you with his sweet eyes and call you 'Mother Fucker'! I mean... he's obviously learning that it's ok to say, and how 'full circle' it would be for the one who spews such garbage from her mouth to be covered in it from her own borne. I love it!
As the saying goes, "Children speak what they hear." And you seem to think that this kind of talk is GREAT! Oh, check this out...for that special day for dear ol' mom next month, he can yell at ya...'Happy Motherfucker's Day!" Enjoy it! You seem to crave it...

pity...

I'd definitely go for the legal name change before the last name choice spews from his lips!
