Insanity of Motherhood

Motherhood, marriage, and midlife.

Guy Talk


A conversation between a mother and a little boy.

Mother and little boy are sitting on carpet.  Little boy is putting on his shoes.

I can’t get my shoes on.  It hurts.” – Little Boy

Mother looks at shoes.

“They’re too small.  We’ll need to pick up some new ones this weekend.” – Mother

“We need to get some new underwear too.  I want to start wearing boxers.”- Little Boy

“Excuse me?  Boxers?  You mean boxer briefs?” – Mother

“Yeah.  I don’t want to wear underwear anymore.  I want to wear boxers.” – Little Boy

“Really?  Why?” – Mother

“I’m big now.  I’m the only one who lives here and still wears underwear.” – Little Boy

“I wear underwear.  I live here.” – Mother

“You’re a girl, Mom.  Girls wear underwear and men wear boxers.  I’m not a baby anymore.  It’s time.” – Little Boy

“You will always be my baby”.  – Mother

Mother kisses little boy on the head.

You mean no cartoon characters on your underwear anymore?” – Mother

“Well… maybe we can find some boxers with superheros on them.  That would still be cool, right? – Little Boy

“Yeah, it’s cool.  Maybe I could get some too?” – Mother

“Mom, don’t talk about wearing boxers.  It’s guy talk.” – Little Boy

  1. Sounds like your little guy has a great sense of humor and a wonderful personality. He’ll thrive a the only one at home, I am sure you’ll miss the tall boy, but little boy will more than make up for him. Have a blast, and get those super hero boxers!

  2. Hi Clay. Little Boy does have a great sense of humor. He is has learned sarcasm, so he fits right in with the rest of us. 🙂 I will miss Old Boy terribly, but you’re right. Having Little Boy will make the transition much easier. I hope you are enjoying the summer break with the family. Thanks as always for reading my blog!

  3. I enjoy your posts and read when I can, sometimes life gets in the way and I can’t read or comment when I should. Our writing deserves to be read and shared, our stories are the way we see the world and keep ourselves moving forward. Have a great day.

  4. This is too precious. Made me so nostalgic for the “old days”!
