My Mom's Motherhood
For all the skinned knees and Band Aids, The popcorned movies, root beer floats, Nineteen cent kites, popsicles, trips to the park, That one about the Ark, the neighbor’s dog, Telling dad I didn’t want the boring Schwinn Ten speed, for typing lessons in sixth grade, The wiener dog, the leaf collection, the sewing I couldn’t fathom, the opportunity to knit my Own six-foot scarf with one stitch, patent leather Shoes and plaid bell-bottoms wide white belts And leisure suits, The Beatles album, Sonny, The five Caesareans, the no wigs, the spelling bee, Cher, Chicago, piano lessons, college, brothers, The watch, the ring, sisters and other pets – Thanks mom, you’re the best.

Thomas, I really enjoyed this poem the detail and specificity of what your mother did and your memories of her make it immediate and accessable to everyone. We all have these memories of our own mother or of wishing for these moments. I love sisters and other pets I don't know if you ment to imply your sisters were pets but it is a wonderful tongue in cheeck ending to this poem. Sandra
