Insanity of Motherhood

Motherhood, marriage, and midlife.

More Than Just Words


A conversation between a mother and her teenage son.

“Mom, could you come here?” – Tall Boy

“In just a minute.  I need to get the laundry folded.” – Mom

“Come on, Mom.  It is important.  I want to show you something.” – Tall Boy

“Can’t it wait?  Oh, forget it.  I’ll be right there.” – Mom

Teenage boy points to computer screen.

“See, it is a school project I am working on.  What do you think?” – Tall Boy

Mom looks at screen.

“Wow.  That is cool.  What do the words represent?” – Mom

“They describe a person.  The project was to create a word picture of someone we admire.” – Tall Boy

“Oh.  Who is the person?” – Mom

“You, Mom.  The words represent you.” – Tall Boy

“Oh…my.” – Mom

Mom gives son a big hug and kiss.

“Thank you my sweet boy.” – Mom
