Dee goes through a situation with her Mama that taught her she cannot have everything she wants, she’s confused about her inheritance. At the beginning of the story Dee demands to be called a different name rejecting her family valuing the quilts, but as the narrator describes, “I didn’t want to bring up how I offered Dee (Wangero) a quilt when she went away to college she told me they were old fashioned, out of the style” (Walker 432). The narrator is the Mama telling about the event that happened between her and her daughters. While telling it she learned that she always neglected Maggie for De, and it brought a sense of realization to herself. At the beginning Mamas tone is self-confident and proud; however, at the end of the story it changes to defensive and sarcastic.
She then realized that the things her mother did were not because of her, it was because like Sal says in this quote,”For the first time, it occurred to me that my mother’s leaving had nothing whatsoever to do with me. It was separate and apart. We couldn’t own our mothers” (Creech 169). The impact that this theme had on the reader was to realize that the people around you are the people you become. Me personally, also think that this was the message Sharon Creech tried to spread to everybody, that relationships impact and mold who you
phrase) After they analyzed the x-rays, the hospital told my parents that there was nothing they could do, it was the worst broken arm they’d ever seen, and I needed to get surgery at John’s Hopkins. If I didn’t, one of my arms would be longer than the other for the rest of my life. My parents were shocked, and my mom got sick. They wheeled me out in a stretcher into the ambulance, and I remember it was raining, and I kept thinking I was going to fall. I was on a lot of pain medication, so I didn’t really know what was happening or where I was, and I kept drifting in and out of
Luke did not want anyone to know about him being sick so Julie was supposed to pick him up and then take him to the doctor. When they got to the doctors office the waiting room was full of sniffling kids. Forty minutes went bye and the door to the outside of the office had opened and Luke’s mom rushed in: “Nancy! Why are you here? The doctor told me to come.
Their reason makes sense, but my sister hates that they do this. With my brothers it was different because they snuck out of the house and my mom would wake up in the morning and see them missing and then she would lock all the doors, so they couldn’t come back inside of the house. What my mom did was really drastic, but she did it for a good reason he never asked permission. The only friends I really have is 2 good friends and I barley talk to them because there’s nothing to talk about once high school is over I still have to worry about
My experiences in Cuny schools were not pleasant for me. I lost my aunt to esophageal cancer in November of 2011, after that I lost my grandmother who was perfectly healthy in April of 2012. That was less than seven months all while going to school and working. I had no time to grieve or give up. I had to continue with my responsibilities and help my mother and take care of my autistic son.
He then slapped me and said, “ you're no one to tell me what I can and cannot do in my own home”. I had ran inside the home as, I felt humiliated because this incident happened to be witness by his family. After a short while, his aunt had come into the home and approach me, she had ask what why I was hit. She informed me that they did not want to get involved because it was between my husband and I. She had also informed me that the family were leaving in order for us to resolve our issues.
This started out as a normal day at school but I suddenly felt sick during the middle of the school day, so I went to the nurse and I had a fever plus lunch didn’t agree with me.

I barely had enough time to say goodbye to my husband and my mom before the anesthesiologist put twilight medicine in my IV, I don’t remember anything after that. Later on, my husband told me I was crying as the surgeons rolled me down the hallway and saying how much I loved
Off to Tahoe One day when I was visiting Tahoe my mom called a family meeting and she said we were all as a family going to move to Incline Village. I started crying on the inside but on the outside I was showing much exitement. I felt really sad but I didn’t want to disappoint my mom so I never told her. We just got back from our dads about a week after the announcement. We got back to the house and that’s when I saw a sign that said sold, and this time I started crying on the inside and the outside.

The first essay I chose to read was called I Am in Dementia Prison with My Mom, Janet had no prior knowledge or understanding as to why her mother’s health, mind, and thought process was deteriorating. She couldn’t come to terms with her mom being mental sick and when she did she had help and support from her entire family. The second was titled Transferring Mom was New, But Restlessness and Inactivity Kindled her Agitation. Against her and he husband better judgment she took her mom to the store. I believe she did this because she did not want to tell her mom no, as a caregiver, especially to a loved one sometime following your intuition and saying no can be difficult being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person.
