I'm sorry, have we met?

Hi. I'm Abby's Mom. Oh wait, no, I'm Alex's Mom. Oh, geez, I'm actually Ralph's wife.

That's how I'm known in our neighborhood. When we first moved in, my husband was working his odd hours so he was around during the day to get to know everyone. I was stuck in an office all day and would only appear briefly at night before running in the house to start dinner and then never reappear again.

Now, when we are out and about in town our neighbors will shout,

"Hi Ralph! Abby, Alex, good to see you."

Hello?? Remember me - the Wife/Mom? I'm going to get a whole bunch of those blue Hello My Name Is... stickers and start wearing them out food shopping.
