*On the way home from school today, Is sees a woman walking her dog*

“Mommy, where’s that Mommy’s kid?”
“The woman with the dog?”
“Yes! Where’s her kid?”
“I don’t know, Is… maybe her kid is home… or maybe she doesn’t have a kid.”
“Just because a woman is grown, doesn’t mean she’s a mommy.”
“But, she’s a grown up!”
“Yes, and a lot of grown ups are parents… but a lot aren’t… like Maureen. She’s grown, but she’s not a mommy.”
“But why?”
“Well, there’s lots of reasons women might not be mommies, or want to be mommies.”
“Where is she?”
“She’s working right now.”
“I miss her. I bet she needs a hug.”
