I Know, I Know, But it Still StingsPosted: October 12, 2008
You hopefully just have to read this blog to know how much I love Aidan (and Erin and Renee — but this one is just about Aidan).
You also, if you’ve seen us together, know that he loves me back. I know that. I can feel that. But, he’s also a Momma’s boy. I know that, too.
It doesn’t make what happened tonight any easier — even though I know the truth.
So we had a birthday party to go to today. I actually had to go to work for a bit, so we arrived in two separate cars. We packed PJs for the kids and got them both changed into them before leaving at about 6:30 — hoping they’d crash on the way home (especially Aidan, who didn’t nap). Well, they didn’t do that.
As I’m carrying Aidan and Renee has Erin, I say to Aidan:
“So, bud, you riding with me or with mom?”
“With mom, because I love her better than you.”
Again, I know. He’s four. And I know and I know and I know. But it still stung.
