Chats in the Cafeteria

PTA mom-friend related this little conversation overheard in the school cafeteria today:

Kid #1: Are you talking about my real mom, or my step-mom?

Kid #2: What's the difference?

Kid #1: Well, I don't know. You know, a real mom is, like, well, real. She does real-mom stuff. Like a real mom does. A step-mom - I don't really know what she is. But she's not a real mom.

Even though I'm a step mom, I know the kid has that right. No matter what, there's no one who can take the place of mom.

Side note: I think it's cool when Kristy calls me when she's had a bad day and needs my shoulder to cry on. I'm so happy to be here for her.
