Tember had to put on sweats this morning and as I am looking at him I realize that he grows another inch or so and they would be to short.

T: Ha ha a few more inches and I will be taller than you. (Dancing like an ape in the doorway)

Me: I am still the adult.

T: But I am the bigger heavier child (Still dancing like an ape)

M: I hold the purse strings.

T: Fair enough (stops dancing and goes to brush teeth)

Picture is my own

Author: Jay-lyn Doerksen

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
