I never thought my mom actually saw me as a kid who would probably never end up with someone. I thought I was the only one in the household who thought that. Kids in my school would most likely agree with me, but they’re a different story. My mom is… my mom.
But again, she is my mom and I tell her a LOT of things. She has caught up on the fact that guys don’t knock on my door and confess their complete undying infatuation to me. She must have understood during prom, when no one asked me to dance. Moms know things in a way that I can’t comprehend. Like a boss.
We had our normal uneventful supper. As I was busy imagining scenarios that included my biases, my mom decided to start a conversation with a topic that came completely out of the blue.
Mom: Do you have plans of marrying after school?
Me: Ummm… yes? I don’t even have a boyfriend yet!
Mom: Oh… good. Me and your dad want another chance at raising children. So a grandchild or two would be nice.
Mom: Anyways, if you can’t find anyone in the future, I’ll look for you. I’ll set you up.
Me: Thanks…. o.O
I’ve gotta appreciate my mom for boosting up my self-confidence there. Thanks mommy!
Do moms do these kinds of things a lot?
