Sticking with Julian

Julian informed me today that he was being adopted. We had just settled in at the doctor's office for a well-check visit and the nurse had weighed him and taken his blood pressure. She showed us to our room and when we sat down Julian said, "I'm being adopted today." The nurse and I glanced at each other and I said, "Did you just say you're being adopted today?"
Julian: Uh huh.
Me: By who?
Julian: (Shyly points to the nurse)

I confess that the nurse was a cute blonde in her early twenties. She didn't have the same "mother of a few" look that I do. But that Julian thinks he can beat his dad out for me. The "mother look" is his thing! Besides, I can sing the Mighty Morphin Power Ranger song better than any of my friends. So I was pretty sure this nurse had nothing on me.

Me: Do you know what being adopted is?
Julian: (Shakes his head no.)
Me: I thought so.

Yeah, I've still got it.

There is something super Oedipal about that boy. I'd be nervous but I'm faster and smarter than he is.
