..your ex..



..sometimes, in my conversation with my children, their handphone would ring, I would query with my eye,  they would cup the phone and simply say, 'Your ex,' meaning their mother....and I would be a little bit nonplus at their nonchalance..I never  thought of her that way..definitely I did not go around referring to her as my ex...somehow it does not sound right..


'..what do you tell mama when I called..?'
'..your ex,' was the reply, straight-faced..


..sometimes I wished my children would called a spade, a spoon..

And in my family, the siblings refer to the parents as "your mother" or "your father" (mind you, we have the same set of parents) depending on who mete out the punishment ...
and of course, our parents, in their conversations, would say "your daughter" or "your son" depending on who had been naughty that day ...

The same thing happens in my family.
Sometimes it irritates me when my husband asks the kids where's your mother.
