Me- Kain, your teacher sent a note home saying that your class was having a Mother's Day tea next Friday.
Kain, softly- Yeah...I know.
Me- Is it ok if I come and be your mom for the day?
Kain, brighter now- Yeah! You do that, ok?
A few minutes later....
Kain- Aunt Mel? I wish my real mom could come though.
Me- I know you do, honey.
Kain- I wish I could live with my real mom, except that she did everything just like you do it. Except the things that you don't let me do...she could let me do those.
