Does my son know I'm his mother?

About a week ago I was picking D2 up from the half-day toddler program at Montessori and just making chit chat with his teacher. I asked her how he was doing. "He's doing great" she tells me, "but he keeps asking for someone named Eva. Who takes care of him in the afternoon?" I tell her Eva is his nanny who has been with our family since he was two and half months old. She looks at me sympathetically, head cocked to the side and says, "He asks for her all the time." I say well he's very attached to her. From my point of view it's no big deal. But all of a sudden I started feeling just a bit defensive.


I've since started to notice that D2 asks for Eva a lot these days. On the weekends, which she has off, he pretends to call her on the phone. When she leaves for the day, he'll ask me in toddler-speak where she is,  "Eva car?" "Eva outside?". Any time he sees a red Toyota Corolla he thinks it's her. For some reason this attachment doesn't bother me that much but Dr. D. has given me the hairy eyeball more than once on this issue.  Occasionally, he'll needle me and say something like, " I wonder if I ask D2 who his mother is what he'll say?" or "Do you think D2 knows you are his mother?" My answer is always the same. Don't be silly, of course he knows I'm his mother. Stupid question. But then I get that little voice of doubt in the back of my head. He knows, right?

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
