Being a mother is never easy. But when you're a single mother who happens to have a daughter who's as stubborn as a mule, it gets even harder. One particular night, Dinky seems to be pushing every one of her mother's buttons. But what will happen when Derpy finally decides enough is enough?


Happy Mother's Day, 'errybody! Go have a good time with the one woman in your life you owe more than anything.

Touching... very touching.:fluttercry::moustache:

I knew that there was going to be at least one mother's day story up today, and this definitely exceeded my expectations. There's a few errors here and there that I caught, but nothing glaring considering that you didn't self-edit.

This... I... Wow.

I really like Derpy as a mother, like, very very much. This is extremely well written and just in time. I'll be watching you !

On a more personal note, your story made me reflect on my current situation with my mother, I think I'll call in sick tonight, make dinner. Thank you for that :)

Proceed !

Bravo! This deserves to be featured, if not for the Mother's Day message alone.

all I can say is.... "Awwwwww...."

I will definitely be giving my mother an extra big hug today.

Made me cry ;w; I love it!


Nice story you got there.

Fondly reminds me of my mother at times.

I'm sorry that I'm not crying because I read "My Little Dashie" prior to this. I think I ran out of liquid from that.... :facehoof:

Also, I also wrote a Derpy + Dinky Mother's Day story. Same concept, different writing style and setting. :twilightsmile:

A great read. Have my bloody severed thumbs.

dinky basically was diamond tiara there :P

This was so nice to read - a really warm story as a result of Mother's day. :pinkiehappy:

Great story, thanks for the touching read. It's always hard for me to resist sad stories :fluttershysad: This'll get featured, at least I hope!

great story, really touching. :fluttercry:

That was adorable and sad at the same time :fluttershysad:. I'm going to go over to my mom right this moment, and give her a big hug. I loved the story, and I hope this gets featured for Mother's Day.

I must admit though that I can not in any way imagine Derpy yelling. It would just make her seem extra silly :derpytongue2:

This is the perfect mother's day fanfic! :heart:

And to all those soccer moms who thought Derpy was offensive, leave her alone she's done nothing wrong, she's not offensive. :facehoof:

Beautiful, wonderful story for Mother's Day. :twilightsmile:

ALL MY 'dawwwwwwwwwwwwww'


I really liked the story, but why did the format switch to align centre partway through? It's a little...odd to read like that. :rainbowhuh:
But anyway, good story, I had to choke back a sob at the end. :fluttercry:


I honestly have no idea why that's happening. I can't seem to fix it!

I was never stubborn, my mom disciplined me

Wow, perfect time to post it. This could be an episode, like a Mother's Day special or something (I wish0. :twilightsmile: :heart:

Very well written! Loved it! :pinkiehappy:

Very touching, (and Derpy's frustration is very relatable). I hope this earns the feature box. It certainly deserves it!:pinkiesad2:

585850 Agreed, Dinky was being a real brat for most of the story. Still, very touching.

this was so touching! I nearly teared up there towards the end. But dang, Dinky was acting really bad... :pinkiegasp: but still, the overall message was beautiful. :twilightsmile:

It was so sweet :')

this sentence plus this one word: d'awwwwwwww......

“dinky, I said that it’s...once-in-a-while...
Forgot a capital, and there doesn't need to be dashes there.
Otherwise, that was beautiful. You wrote a story I can't even fathom writing, using skill and finesse I only dream of. Have a thumb, good pony.

These two always have the best stories. I'm glad others use the intelligent single-mother Derpy instead of portraying her as her name would imply. Adorable story, touching to a fine degree, and characterized well. Take this thumb and these moustaches.

5/5 :moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache::moustache:

Awww, this was very sweet! I really like stories where Derpy is depicted to be just as smart as any other pony, even if quirky and still has her wall-eyes. And while I am on the fence about her being a mother, I definitely am not opposed to cute stories like this! Awwww. Dinky is so cute, she really is just like any child! The way the story came together was great. Loved it! :twilightsmile: Yay for much love for Derpy and Dinky! :D

I was never like that. Probably because my mom can make anything taste like a piece of heaven. And how she made me overcome greed and selfishness.
I am giving her a bear-hug today. Thanks for this feely story,

Wow, just wow. This was awesome :pinkiehappy:
75 Thumbs up and none down, says something doesn't it.

(Also... is this the only Mother's Day fanfic out??)




I hope not.

Should be more "hiding" around here.


The formatting was awkward, but you say that you can't seem to fix it, so....eh. It was worth dealing with that for a good read.

We definitely need more stores of Derpy being motherly.. This was just heartwarming. All my feels.

I cried...I cried...I FUCKING CRIED!!!! :raritycry::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry::raritycry:

This is beautiful, I cant til' I become a parent someday:pinkiesad2:

touching my friend touching :fluttercry: :applecry: for this story you earn a moustache :moustache:

Soo cute. :fluttershysad:
Your avatar scares me though.

Little fillies can be a handful of trouble...
But the ending was very heartwarming. :pinkiesad2:

I've been reading a lot of Derpy and Dinky stories, and looking at a lot of fanart lately. Dinky always seems to be portrayed as the perfect child, an absolute angel who never gives out any trouble. Or they have her getting made at her mother for being the reason she gets teased at school.

Honestly, it's kind of nice to see her acting like a brat in this story. She's not angry at Derpy because of the teasing, and she's not an angel, she just's an ordinary kid who can sometimes act like a brat. It just makes the moment of angel hood at the end all the more heartwarming.

Nice.This is one of the only interpretations of Dinky where she actually acts like a real little kid, as opposed to the perfect little angel that most fanfics portray her as. The ending was very sweet, and I enjoyed the whole thing throughout.:heart:

Since it's mother's day I did a quick read of your story. hope you don't mind :)

oh so beutifull!:heart:
It acctualy got me to tear up a bit too, because Dinky at the end remind me so much of my self all those countless times I've fighted with the ones I love!:pinkiesad2:

Great Mother's Day special. :pinkiesmile:

This is too cute. <3
