Insanity of Motherhood

Motherhood, marriage, and midlife.



A conversation between a mother and a teenage son.

Mother is driving teenager home from school.  Teenager looks out the window.

Man, I would never want that job.” – Tall Boy

“What are you talking about?  What job?”- Mother

Tall Boy points out the window toward fast food restaurant.

“Look at that girl.  She stands outside for hours holding that sign.  Somedays it’s really hot.  What an awful job.  She hardly moves.  She doesn’t even look real.” – Tall Boy

“She’s not.” – Mother

“What?  What do you mean?”- Tall Boy

Mother pulls over into restaurant parking lot.  Mother gets out of the car and takes a photo of the girl.  Mother gets back in car and hands the phone to teenager.


“Whoah.  Unreal.  Wonder how much she gets paid?” – Tall Boy
