Happy Father's Day, Dad & StepDad!

Had brunch with Dad (in town with StepMom to visit my eldest cousin who is ill with leukemia and also to visit us and especially Muffin Man). Spoke with StepDad on the phone.

I'm lucky to have two such great men to be parents. I'm lucky in my female parents as well. Which brings up something that has been bothering me in my blog.

I call them Dad, StepDad, Mom, StepMom as though they had no other role to play in their lives. In real life, I call them Dad, {StepDad's first name}, Mom, {StepMom's first name}. I want to keep their anonymity but I feel uncomfortable with the status quo here so...

For the time being, I'm going to rename them:
Dad is now MakesBooksForGrandkids
StepDad is now TellsDonaldDuckStories
Mom is now QuiltsALot
StepMom is now SingsLullabyes

I may change back. Or not.

'Night all.
