One of Those Rare Moments

While channel surfing, the kid paused on a station airing "Trading Spouses: Meet Your New Mommy" at a time when one of the kids on the so-called reality show was voicing her relief that she would have a substitute mom for a week.

I smiled, looked at the kid, and said, jokingly, "I'll bet you feel the same way sometimes."

Her reply caught me off guard.

She said, "NO! HUH-UH! NO! I DON'T WANT another Momma, even for week. Besides, I have a substitute Momma if I need one, 'cause I've got Miss Elaine!"

It was one of those rare moments when any doubts I have are washed away.
