Well, we finally heard from the Swimmy. Yep. We got two letters yesterday and they read as follows:

Dear Ben,

Are you still scareming (screaming) alot?



Yes, Swimmy, he is. A LOT.

But the next letter was the kicker.

Dear MOM,

MOM?! MOM?! Four days ago I was Mommy. Now I’m Mom. If she comes home saying, “Whatever, Mommy is so last week,” I’m pretty sure I’m gonna pass out. Or knock her out. Whatever comes first.

Gotta go now. The mail’s here.

    Its when you get addressed as MOTHER — or worse, MOTH-ERRR!!! — that you will have entered true irrelevance in your child’s life. Except for, you know, cooking, cleaning, clothing, and running them to the mall, the library, the park….

    How funny – I’m sure that is a hard thing to transition… but maybe it’s only because it’s a few less letters to write?

    This is the price we all pay by letting our kids hang out with other kids 😉

    Thank you, dear Fr. Charest, for all your writings and spiritual support you have given over half a century to the Legion of Mary. We are greatly indebted to you and will miss you. May you rest in peace and please pray for us leieonargis to the Queen of Heaven that she will assist us on this side.
