Bring On the Wire Hangers
In every mother/daughter relationship, opportunities occasionally arise for all parties involved to gain a little perspective. One such opportunity recently presented itself in the form of that cinematic classic of parenthood gone awry, “Mommie Dearest.”
Certainly, I have had my cold-cream and lipstick moments. But given that I have never bludgeoned either one of my children with a can of Ajax (or any other cleaning product, for that matter), after viewing some of the choicer scenes with me, the Demigoddesses had to agree that I am really not such a bad mom after all.
Even if I make them watch child abuse re-enactments on cable to prove it.
