I sometimes wonder how much my kids understand about blogging and what Ima really does when she sits down at the computer.
I got a partial answer the other week.
As my readers know I have boys, and they are prone to leave things lying around. Some of these things are sports paraphanalia. In an unusually grumpy mood one day, I gave my son's ball a vicious kick to get it out of my way. He looked at me, put on his sports announcers voice, and said "And westbankmama kicks the ball, it's a goal, and the crowd goes wild!"
Well, as sometimes happens, I immediately lost my grumpiness and started to laugh. Imagining myself playing soccer with some of the professional players is comical in itself - me with my jean skirt and hand holding my beret on my head so that my hair will stay covered, while trying to keep up on the field...Well, you get the picture.
The other thing that made me laugh was his use of "westbankmama". Of course he couldn't use my first name (that is against the law of respecting your parents), but I was surprised that he didn't say "Ima". I guess he knows that I have another "identity", and that westbankmama is the codename.
I wonder what other blogger's kids think?
