You Can Call Me...

"Isaiah's Mom".

That's right.  I'm no longer "Jennifer", "Jenny", "Jenny Kate", "Jen"...nope, I'm "Isaiah's Mom".  

I remember when I was younger and my mom would jokingly say that she should just change her name to "Jenny's Mom" and I didn't quite fully get the gist of that.  Now I do.  After spending a couple of hours with Isaiah's kindergarten class, I now know what she was talking about.  

"Hey, Isaiah's Mom...take my picture!"

"Hey, Isaiah's Mom...see how fast I can run!"
"Hey, Isaiah's Mom...can you tie my shoe?"

"Hey, Isaiah's Mom...what's your name?"  
I say, "Jenny".

10 second later.  Same kid.  "Hey, Isaiah's me do THIS!"

I kinda dig it.

I think it's a pretty good fit.

Oh I know EXACTLY what you mean. At Lexi's age they finally REALIZE that I do have a name instead of just Lexi's mom!!!!!

I love this post! It's so true.

When I taught kindergarten I was called "Teacher" most of the year. Some kids would eventually call me by name, but others never would.

My grandmother (who was a teacher for over 40 years) once told me that she didn't mind being called teacher. She told me that we call the doctor, doctor. It's an honor to just be called teacher too.

So glad you had fun. The pictures were a great account of your day.

Vic said...

It's soooo funny how kids call us that! :) and even funnier when they think we're their second mother or something because theirs is not there.....cute!

You'll be featured today:) Congrats!

I just wandered over from Vic's feature on The Bloggers Club, and I love your blog :-)

I can totally relate to this new name of yours. My daughter Bella isn't even 10 months yet, but it's already happened to me. When I get to daycare to pick her, the other kids yell, "It's Bella's mommy!"

I like it too. :-)

Happy weekend!!

Aw, you got to go on a field trip :( I haven't been on one yet (little people) but next year I WILL! I do love going into the schools though - apparently people can tell just by looking at me that I'm 'Evie's Mom' :)
