I Made That?
Published on Friday, February 21, 2014 by

Day 21 of the WWFC writing challenge brings us the subject, “Yes, I made that.”

My children.  How many times have I looked up and seen the inconceivable?

“I hate reading!”  “He took my Pokemon card and won’t give it back!”  “Mom we were TRADING cards!”  “But you didn’t say Black Black No Trade Back!”  “I get to ride in the front!”  “HE is the one who keeps the room messy!”  “She keeps telling me she hates me!”  “He FARTED on me!”

Sometimes I look at these strangers and think, “I made that?”

But then I hear…

“Mom, if you ever need any money, you just ask me.  You don’t have to pay it back.”  “All my friends say you are the coolest Mom.”  “I will take care of you forever.”  “Mom, you are still young!”  “I want to volunteer for the dog adoption events.”  “I worked for two whole days helping our neighbor pack to move.”  “I gave my classmate money on the field trip so she could buy something too.”

And I proudly think, “Yes, I made that.”

    Thank you for letting us borrow your kids when we moved! Your kids are awesome and so are you!

  • Well said. You are a great mom and have…er made a great family.

  • Nice. Been there. Now I’m at the Grampa stage. The great thing about that is you can spoil the bejeezus out of them and then give your grandkids back to their parents.

    If it gets any sweeter than this, I might throw up a little. Jesus.

      And then you, too, will be able to take pride in something you made today, Mike.

  • What a lovely post! Very very lovely and full of love!

  • WOW…who wouldn’t be proud?

  • So, um, what if somebody else hits them up for money? What kind of financing are we talking here? 🙂
    Well done, Katherine. You did good.

  • Oh, I LOVE this!!

    My husband would have been proud of the “He farted on me” one. In secret, I might have been too a little bit.
