A recap of The Birthday Song as sung to me by my husband, father and mother (as my son looked on):

"Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday dear MOMMY
Happy Birthday to you."

Let's review:
I am not my husband's mommy.
I am not my father's mommy.
I m not my mother's mommy.
I *am* my son's mommy... but he wasn't singing.

I am truly amazed by how much people's perception of who you are changes after having a child! I guess I'd rather have everyone in my life calling me mommy instead of Ocean calling me Cassie.
