So I'm at work Friday & on the phone with Citibank trying to figure out what was going on with my new bank card. (I lost one, they sent me a new one, and it's been chaos ever since.)
So, I'm on the phone with them for a good half hour trying different things.... FINALLY - they figure it out and tell me: "I'm going to put you on hold for a minute, will put this through, then when I come back on it should be fixed." I say "ok." I hear: Click. Phone disconnected. I say:
Max was at work with me.
"I NEVER hear you say that! You said the F word! Daddy says that, but you NEVER do! I don't believe it! The F word!! You said it!!!"
I apologized and attempted to explain myself.
Later I see him sitting. Looking pensive. I ask him what he's thinking about.
"I'm just thinking about you saying the "F" word. I just can't believe it."
The innocence: Gone. Another wall: Smashed. I am one step closer to being a regular person and not just a "Mom."
