It’s true, Motherhood is like calculus. I wrote about it last year. This year, I thought I would read it on the podcast with a few comments intermingled.
The show ends with a brief snapshot of my mother going through the “infinitesimal” details of mothering me and my siblings in a 1983 tape recording we sent to my out-of-state grandparents.
Two years ago after the death of my grandfather, I found a box full of tape cassettes that I’ve been turning into mp3s. I stumbled upon the 1983 tape two days ago.
There is so much more I could say to make this a true tribute to my wife, my mother, my two living grandmothers, my sisters and sisters-in-law, and really, to every mother I’ve ever known. What they do amazes me.
