Someone Actually Suggested I change My Name

I picked up Will from school today. Almost from the time he saw me (except the brief moment he was mesmerized by the TV) he said, “My name is Michelle. Hi, Michelle.”

Yes, the entire drive home and even now while he’s on the computer I hear an occasional prompting for me to accept the fact that he has christened me Michelle. I feel like I’m trying to scoop up the ocean with a pail in attempting to prompt him to call me mom – or barring that, at least call me by my own name!

One of us, clearly, is more stubborn. Should I accept the inevitable? My husband has already slipped up, on Mother’s Day I heard him tell Will to leave Michelle alone.
