Mommie and Mom--is there a difference? YES! I think so! Your little ones start out by calling you mommie, then as they get older it becomes mom. So, is there a difference--not in the love that a child has for their mom, but it's all in how they say it.
Can you see the text from that teen that starts "Hey Mommie"? My reply--hey, "what do you want"? HA!
Or how about this one "MOM" (insert a whine here).
Or "mommie, I don't feel good".
It's all in the growing up and becoming adults. We all, at some point, no matter our age want our "mommie"
Well, I'm learning each day living with a chronic illness, that sometimes being "mommie" is very hard. I will NOT let ankylosing spondylitis take the mommie from me! I love when my girls need "mommie"--and no matter what the level of pain or exhaustion--mommie will be there! If I have to drive 2 hours or even go in my PJs!!
I am thankful for my health when my girls were babies. For those that suffer with AS and raising little ones--I applaud you!
I do want to scream sometimes to GOOO AWAAAYYYYY AS--GIVE ME MY LIFE BACK! Give my FAMILY back the person they deserve to have--not this crippled, broken body that I've become.
But, this is the life I must live. This is the disease--the incurable disease--that I've got. So, with that I say, I will live each day to the best I can--as if it were the last. I will be that MOMMIE! Because nobody and NO DISEASE will take that from me!
AS has my body, but not me!
