If you died mom....dad could go to this site and get a new mom!

See the title of my post?

That is what Cole said to me last week..


The website he is talking about is www.getmommed.com.
You know that kleenex commercial where the guy tries out a few moms to see which mom gives him the best remedy (babying) for his cold....

My 5yr old son thinks that if you visit the site, the second you click on it the doorbell will ring and a new mom will appear at the house for him...and I would have to leave...

Not sure where I would go...we have not discussed this situation much further.

Disturbing is the fact that he said Mom and Die in the same sentence...and then casually tossed me aside as though daddy would quickly replace me....come on...I am NOT replaceable.

Reassuring is the fact that Cole refuses to let me go to this site...he gets a terrified look in his eyes when I ask him about it...he's all talk that child of mine...

It did make me think though...if I were to pass while my kids are young, would I want Tim to find a new mommy for the boys?

Apparently in Cole's eyes, its as simple as clicking the mouse...


  1. I can't even go there. I can't imagine not being here. And as for replacing, I don't think that is possible.

  2. Awww...what a cutie!

    The odd time that thought passes my mind, and then my brain shuts down and I can't even imagine being gone. If I were to leave this world I would want Mark to be happy, but he could never replace me ;) He has it way too good!

  3. This is an interesting question! I think if I died, I would definitely want my DH to remarry so my daughter would have a mom. I think moms are especially important for girls! It would just have to be a woman who respected my family and the major role they would play in my daughter's life, even in my absense!

  4. Wow, Cole is such a special kid! You are irreplaceable Cheryl and you know it! I know that if I died, I would want Pete to remarry, but she would have to have an unbelievably huge amount of love for my kids, and my husband would never settle for anything less...but I hate thinking about this idea.
