Insanity of Motherhood

Motherhood, marriage, and midlife.

A Mother’s Intuition


A conversation between a mother and a teenage son.

Mother walks into teenage son’s room.  Teenage son is laying on bed.  Mother looks at floor.

“I’m getting ready to do laundry.  Are those clothes clean or dirty?” – Mother

“Um…which ones?” – Old Boy

“Those.” – Mother (pointing to HUGE pile of clothes on floor)

“Dirty.” – Old Boy

Would you please bring them to the garage so I can wash them…now?” – Mother

“Okay.” – Old Boy

Mother walks toward door and looks at floor again.

“Why are your shoes in here?  Would you please put them away too?” – Mother

“Okay.  Geez.” – Old Boy

Mother bends over to get closer look at shoes on floor.

So I’m heading to Target tomorrow.  I bet you could use some new socks, right?” – Mother

Yeah.  I do need new socks.  How did you know?” – Old Boy

“Mothers are very intuitive about socks.” – Mother
