So I wasn’t too surprised when she left the following message on our home answering machine the other day:
“It’s me. You must be out hiking…You know, it might be time to cut the umbilical cord and take the kids names off your message…”
After shrieking “Akkkkkk!” I had the following conversation with myself:
“I HATE that idea.”
“Well, she may have a point.”
“They’ll feel rejected! Unloved! Erased!”
“They never call, so they’ll never know.”
I’ll spare you the rest but trust me, it’s gone on like that for about a week.
So, I need help. Specifically, yours.
Is it time…
