Brothers and sisters I have none, But that woman’s mother is my mother’s daughter.
The other day when talking to me Mom referred to my daughter as H__.
Now H__ is my paternal aunt who used to live with us when I was a child. Now with grown children of her own, my aunt is living in another city and we last saw her a couple of years back.
Mom said her name so naturally, she was not aware anything was amiss.
That set me wondering, was Mom transported back in time to the years my aunt was living with us? If so, and Mom thought my daughter was her sister-in-law, did she think I was her mother-in-law?
Am I now mistaken for my GRANDMA??
Or perhaps Mom just affixed the name to my daughter, as there is some physical resemblance between my daughter and my aunt. That would indicate Mom is no longer able to distinguish clearly between some people.
It is quite a sobering thought.
