To begin, the lack of financial stability in the Walls family has always been problematic, however as the mother of her children, Rose Mary never contributed much to the family income due to her stubbornness and free-spirited nature. A prime example of Rose Mary not providing for her family is a constant lack of food in the house. The children’s hunger is apparent when Jeannette says, “We did eat less. Once we lost our credit at the commissary, we quickly ran out of food. Sometimes Dad’s odd jobs would come through, or he’d win some money gambling, and we’d eat for a few days.

Kincaid uses the phrase “this is how” twenty-seven times. For example, “…this is how a man bullies you; this is how to love a man…” (Kincaid, 5). Kincaid’s mother uses this phrases to emphasize the importance of her learning the things she is describing because if she did not do these things, she would be looked down upon by the rest of the population; she would not be the proper woman. This is established by the quote, “…you mean to say after all you are really going to be the kind of woman who the baker won’t let near the bread?” (Kincaid, 5). By this phrase, her mother is implying that other people’s opinions matter more than her own; she has to act a certain way and do certain things to be socially accepted.

He went upstairs to ask Lisa if she had seen it. They went downstairs and he said “it was right there, like do you remember seeing it?” He tried to use muscle memory to help find it. She answers him, “no, and I hate when you treat me like your associates at work.” Lisa never liked Chris’ communication skills; he could make her talk, but she did not like talking. She went upstairs and later, Chris was making coffee when she said it again, “I hate when you treat me like one of your associates.” It was his breaking point. “It was the only time in our thirteen year relationship that I lost it.” All he said to her was, “and I hate it when you ******* whine at the kids and make them cry.” He left the kitchen, and when he woke up, he was downstairs, and he could hear Sarah and Edward crying.
