Dear Mama,

This one is all your fault. Liam wants to call me 'Mom'. At 2 1/2. Seriously. And I just can't let him. That, of course, is the part that is your fault. Having brought me up with 'mom' as a taboo word, it completely goes against every fiber of my being to be called 'mom' myself.

I have no idea what brought this on. I've had discussions with him: "I know other kids may call their mothers "Mom", but not me." I've tried, "that's not my name." Mark backs me up - even if he doesn't understand it. I've tried ignoring him. I've even tried threatening him with a timeout.

The other day, he called me 'mom' and I said, "What have I said about that?"

His teary reply was, "Mommy, I want to call you 'Mom'." I gave him a hug and asked whether he could wait a few years?

He agreed.

What then? Have I laid you a thick enough guilt trip?

Don't make a big deal out of it and just keep reinforcing that sweet 'Mommy" associated with his voice and he will return to his lovable 'old' self. Maybe he'd like maman!?

Her doctor explained that everyone's tolerance was different for these reasons, the court said. the question, therefore, became whether caracoÂ’s drug would infringe its patent.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod's. It works well, but isn't as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that's not an issue, but if you're planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod's larger screen and better browser may be important.

great! Hopefully one day in America we can have our own.

A person essentially help to make seriously posts I would state. This is the first time I frequented your web page and thus far? I amazed with the research you made to make this particular publish incredible. Great job!

Am I the only one to disagree?

everyone loves wedding parties, it is fun, it is lively and there are lots of food and drinks too"

when i was still in high school, i always planned to take pyschology because it gives me great interest::

i was home schooled when i was still very young and i have to stay that it is also a great way to educate your kids..

John Chow is definitely my idol, i think that guy is extra-ordinary. he is really talented,.

what i like about cable internet is that it is almost immune to electrical noise which always degrades DSL lines``

kitchen aids have a variety of different appliances that can help you cook your food easier,,

what i can say is that abortion is a sin and it should be deemed illegal by all means-

i am looking for gadget reviews this december coz i wanna buy some of the latest gadgets for my girlfriend.,

disaster movie is hilarious, i laugh for hours just watching that movie.

i prefer wall clocks with hanging pendulums because they look nice at home~

Hi. I wanted to drop you a quick note to express my thanks. I have been following your blog for a month or so and have picked up a heap of good information as well as enjoyed the way you’ve structured your site.

LCD TVs can really save you from high electricity bills and office space``

roses are stillt he traditional wedding flowers that we use on wedding ceremonies because they are very beautiful.,

not everyone would need a nose job but my girlfriend really needs some rhinoplasty coz her nose is kind of crooked,.

I've observed in the world of today, video games are the latest rage with kids of all ages. Periodically it may be not possible to drag the kids away from the video games. If you want the best of both worlds, there are numerous educational activities for kids. Thanks for your post.

The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it'll do even better in those areas, but for now it's a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod's strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

Mom - Your Mama Is Dead - just great!

This is the best blog for anybody who desires to find out about this topic. You notice so much its nearly onerous to argue with you (not that I truly would want...HaHa). You undoubtedly put a brand new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, simply nice!
