Playing Make Believe

Last night when I got home from work, I had Evan in one arm and grabbed our mail with my free hand. When I got inside, I sat the mail down on our console table and looked down to see the latest Victoria’s Secret catalog and the gorgeous model on the front looking back at me. We have a mirror above the console table, so I looked up from the mail stack to see my frizzy-haired, tired self. Evan looked at our reflection in the mirror and then looked at the Victoria’s Secret model, pointed at her and said, “Mama.”

I, of course, replied, “Yes, baby. That does look a lot like mama, doesn’t it?” I can definitely see how he could get the two of us confused.

He smiled and grabbed the catalog. It just occurred to me that this could be his first attempt to try to use flattery to get what he wanted, since I let him sit and flip through the catalog. I didn’t think he’d have an interest in Victoria’s Secret until junior high. Check out the model on the cover. It is an uncanny resemblance, isn’t it? Hopefully my sarcasm is shining through, as there is no chance that anyone besides Evan would see a resemblance.

Needless to say, I had a fun afternoon of playing make believe!
