Me: It’s Liz.
Me: Solara, can you say “lih”?
Me: Now can you say “zzzz”?
Me: Now say Lihzzzzz.
Solara: Nn nn. Mama!
Me: What? 🤗
Solara: Hi! 🤣
Me: I’m not Memaw, I’m Mama.
Me: No — I’m Liz. Man, child. You’ve got me confused now. It’s too late for this.
Starting a new thing to where I take conversations out of context. They’re like bite-sized peeks into my life.
Solara and I are cousins, I’m constantly trying to get her to say some variation of my name, and yet she still calls me “Mama”.
It’s weird because I don’t have kids and honestly thought my future adopted child would be the first to call me any variation of maternal affection, but here we are. 🤷
