Moms

I was going over to watch Kali this afternoon, as usual, and her sisters (the three year old twins, Laura and Danielle) were going to be awake for a good chunk of it.  A few hours before my arrival, their mom texted me: "FYI Laura is being an emotional a-hole today."

That phrasing is pretty common: she loves her kids, but recognizes that they can be a pain in the rear.  She doesn't call them that to their faces, but she has no hesitations about saying it to me or their father.

I love it.  Sure, it may not be the most proper thing, but it can be so refreshing just to hear a mother admit that, yes, her kid was acting like a piece of shit.  And boy was she today.  That child.  Grr.
