When Kooper was little one time, as is the norm, I was the butt of one of his and BDC's jokes. They were having fun at my expense. Talking about ways to get rid of me and the like. I remember telling my son who was about three at the time that he would miss me, if for no other reason than I am the sole cook in the family. He piped up and said "It's o.k., we'll just get a Robot Mommy."
At first I was crushed that my baby was not more attached to me. It's been a running joke so long now that I just blow it off when they threaten to off me to replace me with a robot mommy. But, lately the boys have all been way into my cooking. They have a few house favorites that I don't think they are willing to live without.
So the other night I am making one of Kooper's favorite dishes. He asks me all sweet and innocent like if I will write the recipe down for him. He has his own cookbook. He spent a year going to Young Chefs Academy. He enjoyed it, and it was a great way for us to get a kid who normally won't eat anything that isn't meat or potatoes, to at least try other things. He did at least try everything they made. So I told him I would write the recipe down at some point for him.
He says, "O.K., but Mom, we are really going to need those recipes to upload to our Robot Mommy if something happens to you. So could you do it sooner than later?"
I turn to give him a dirty look and he is bent over doubled laughing at me.
Don't you wish you were loved as much as me?
