Carter's mom

I was leaving Shaista's house this morning after dropping off Carter and I heard someone yell out, "Hi Carter's mom!" It took me a second to realize she was talking to me. It was one of the elementary school girls she watches every once in a while when they have a half-day. She was on her way to school (the elementary school is right around the corner).

I know theoretically I'm someone's mother, but it still feels surreal to me. To hear someone say it like that was just...strange. I don't know how to explain it. And it's so crazy that Carter has this other life that he lives while I'm at work, where kids know him and play with him.
