Not Mom – A Short Story

One of our Javelina teachers, Ms. Starr Lee, just shared an awesome story.  We often talk about how concrete and literal toddlers are – here is a great example.

One of her two year olds often calls her “Mom”.  When that happens Starr has been responding “I’m Not Mom.”  Makes sense to all of us – right?

The other day this child came up to Ms. Starr and tapped her on the leg, urgently calling “Not Mom Not Mom Not Mom” trying to get her attention using what she apparently thinks is her name!

I guess Starr needs to change the way she responds when this child calls her “Not Mom” – I’m certain her birth certificate does not say “Not Mom Lee”!
