To My Future Stress-Creators, Who I Will Love Until The End

I already love you.

To My Future Stress-Creators, Who I Will Love Until The End
Patrick Fore

Dear Future Children,

I'll tell you this right now: I will not be the perfect mother. I will mess up at times. I will disappoint you. I will anger you. I will make you wish that I was just a little less protective or just a bit less controlling. You will wish that I understood you better. You will wish that I agreed to everything you want me to, but I won't, especially about the parties that I know the bad boy you like will be at. I am your future mother, I know more than you think I do.

I can promise you that I will love you no matter how many times I may wish that you would just be a bit more quiet. I will love you no matter how many times we argue, even on the nights when I can't sleep because of it. You may not believe me, but I will not be okay after those fights. I will question what I did wrong, if I made the right move, but whatever I do I hope you know I saw it to be the best option for you.

I will hope that you never grow up, always giggling and dancing around our future home, but I will also be excited to see what wonderful things you will do in the future. I will take way too many pictures of you, likely putting them in frames covering every wall and embarrasing you with them when you are older. I will be happy to give every single person that enters into our home a tour of them, telling the stories of when you were little. You will likely grow annoyed with me doing so, but, honestly, get over it. I will have made you, I will have carried you in my stomach for nine months probably, I get to show your cute photographs to whoever I want.

I will do my best to protect you from all of the evils in the world, even though I recognize you will likely have to face them one day. You are my baby though. I do not want to see you suffer, especially if I am able to limit it. You may think I am crazy for the things that I do to try to keep you safe, but one day I hope you will understand why I did what I did. I also will likely actually be crazy by the time you are a teenager, so it is not as if I will be able to deny that part.

I look forward to watching you follow your dreams. I look forward to seeing your best and worst moments in life that will form who you are and what you believe in. You will find love and pain, but I will be there as long as possible to care for you, even when you do not want me to. You will never be alone.

I cannot wait to meet you, hopefully in the next decade or so, but first I must become a person that you may be proud to call your mother.

I'll see you in the future, my loves.


Your Future Mother

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
