He Likes Me, He Likes Me, He Really, Really Likes Me...

Last night my phone rang. I opened it before looking to see who it was.

Me: Hello?

Him: Hello?

Me: ummm, hello?

Him: Is this Martie S*?

Me: Why, yes, yes it is! Is this Jimmy S*? (my 12 year old stepson)

We laugh and then he tells me that his 6 baby rabbits died. We talked about how rabbits can have babies really quick--and that next time we will bring momma and babies inside out of the cold (they froze to death). Then we get ready to hang up...

Me: well, Ok. I guess I'll see you on Friday when your Dad brings you over...OK? I love you.

Him: OK! I love you too!!

Sniff. Sniff. Does it get much better? I mean MY kids sorta *have* to love me... I gave birth to em and all. THESE kids CHOSE to love me. They chose to love ME! ME! wow. And boy! Boy, do I have them fooled... hee hee.

That's gotta be awesome, Martie.

I'm glad my own kids feel the same way about Trish.

It makes life so much easier...
