Insanity of Motherhood

Motherhood, marriage, and midlife.

Midlife Something Part II


Conversation between a father, mother and a teenage boy.

Father walks in front door.  Mother is cooking in the kitchen.  Father walks over to mother and gives her a kiss.

Well, I got the car?” – Father

“Oh.  You did?  Already?  I thought you were going to do a few more test drives.” – Mother

“I found the right car.  I knew it was the perfect one for me.  Come outside and have a look.” – Father

Mother and father walk outside to look at new car.

This is the car?  I thought you were getting a bigger sedan?  What about the cars we looked at last night?  You know the ones with more room for the family to sit.” – Mother

“This is more of a commuter car for me.  I will mainly be driving it to and from work.” – Father

“Oh, I see.  It only has two doors so that will make it hard for the kids to get in the back seat.  It’s also black on the inside and outside.  Won’t that make the car hot?” – Mother

“It won’t be hot.” – Father

“It’s very shiny.” – Mother

“It has more horsepower than my last car.  It has a lots of pep.  Smooth steering too.  Really fun to drive.” – Husband

“I bet.  But I thought you wanted a car with better gas mileage?  Won’t this car use even more gas?” – Mother

“Yeah, but not much more.  It’s still considered to be an economy car.” – Father

Teenage son walks outside.  Teenage son looks at new car.

“Whoa.  Dad, is that your new car?” – Old Boy

“Yup.” – Father

“Cool.  I thought you were getting something bigger, not sporty.” – Old Boy

“I changed my mind.  This car is more me.” – Father

Well, there you go, Mom.  Just when you are finishing up your midlife something dad is entering into his.” – Old Boy

  1. Oh I love this! Great! – But I would ask: What have you got for your “midlife something”? 😉

  2. This reminds me a Modern Family episode where Phil gets a sports car. You see that one?
