Tonight, I am tired. My children are all grown with children of their own, yet my mothering is not yet finished. I don’t want it to ever be finished. In the last 24 hours, I have had conversations with each of my children and my husband. I am no expert on any of the topics below, but I found it interesting when I stopped to consider the content of our conversations. It’s no wonder I’m tired.
Topics discussed in no particular order:
Zillow listings for purchase of a house.
Is it a bad idea to finance a down payment?
The Landlord called.
Rent increase because of 13% HOA increase.
A baby’s projectile vomiting.
Kindergarten interview for admission to a private school.
Summer jobs for teens.
Receiving tenure as a professor.
Gallbladder attack and acute cholecystitis.
Recommendation of a surgeon.
Misinformation and mask controversies.
Spring break with stepchildren.
What’s for dinner?
Medical records for taxes.
Gauge swatches for knitting.
What’s for dinner? Again.
As my father used to say, “Life is real.”

Yep! And your prize for getting through it is getting to do it tomorrow. =)
You are right – mothering is never finished. But I understand why you are tired. Those discussions have to be mentally exhausting. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better day!
Wow you had a busy day, I’ve no idea what some of the things on your list are!
I love my mom so, so much. I call and/or text her for EVERYTHING – and then lose my mind when she doesn’t answer right away LOL. I have only a toddler, but I know my time is coming. I often worry I won’t have all the answers like my mom seems to have. 🙂
So spot on about a mother’s job! Phrases that made me chuckle- “projectile vomiting”, “kindergarten interview”, and “anti-inflammatory diets”. Rest up for the next round of mothering.
I love reading this list! It gives a one day glimpse into topics of interest right now – for real – amongst your family. Thanks for sharing.
