Wow, I love the clothing metaphors! Very imaginative and compelling.

A delightful story and your title is excellent. One little glitch: "waste" should be "waist" — those silly spell-checkers! Well done.

Wow! This is very creative with the multi-faceted wife/mother. I especially liked the Mom coat that was next to the chair in case it was needed quickly. I had to smile at the bulging arm socks! :) Then your ending left me with peace.

An excellant illustration of the many roles we play. Great job on the topic.
Your creativity shines here with the metaphors of a mom's job. The little prayer at the end tied it all together perfectly.
This is so creative and so true! Congratulations on your EC!

Well done, congrats! Your ending in particular brought tears - "Father, it's me. Just me."
