I'm Not Sure "Mama" Means What You Think It Means

Thursday morning was a treat. I haven't really been sleeping since we adopted a certain adorable puppy, so I don't even bother setting an alarm, because chances are someone is going to be needing me for something within a 2 hour window of when I would have wanted to wake up anyway. So sometime in the wee hours of Thursday I slowly awoke to this:

Mama!
Mama!
Mama!
Mama!
whine whine whine.
MAMA!
MAMA!

I decided my best course of action was to take Lucy out first before I went to check on Jack. Because he wears a diaper. So as I passed Jack's room with the puppy in my arms there was a sort of doppler affect.

Mama!
Mama!
MAMA!
MAMA!
Mama!
Mama!
Mama!

And then I was outside. Lucy did her business and I headed to Jack's room because he was still going strong. Mama, etc. (Dave was sleeping, or at least, still in bed.)

When I finally got into his room I felt more than a little guilty for putting the puppy's needs first, so I was very loving and concerned with my greeting. Exuberant even. Delirious, possibly. And what was it that my darling boy wanted?

Mama!
Yes dear? What can I do for you my darling child?
Mama!?
Yes?

I want Daddy.
