Mother Lode



This is the visit where I regain my parental groundings.

She texts “Duh” when I didn’t check voicemail first, such disrespect!

I get that teens and young adults do this power struggle thing

They feel completely invincible, the world is their oyster,

we have done nothing right in our entire lives and the snide remarks

are for our own good. To get us to be hip like them.

I am here to model humility, unconditional love and

how Mom’s slightly lower a notch from that know it all perch.
