When do I get to be known as me?

As Hilary grew up and started impressing people with her remarkable drawings and sculptures, I was relegated to being called “Hilary’s dad.” Now Benjamin is charming the people of Furnace Creek in Death Valley and turning his mom into, not Hilary, but “Ben’s mom.”

Hilary’s dad; Ben’s mom. Hm-m. The cycle repeats.

You were you when you were a kid and your parents became 'Tom's Mom & Dad' of course.
