I'll Try To Take This The Right Way. Repeat.
I took my daughter Nora to the pool today, and we swam and swam and had a grand time.
And on the way out I got the question every over-40 Mom has prepared herself for, or should:
"She's darling. Is that your granddaughter?"
"She's my daughter. Thanks."
The lady said "Well, it just looked like you were enjoying her SO MUCH!"
That a Mom can't enjoy her kid as much as a Grandma? That's what she was saying?
Well, I could have been nicer. But I just said "Well, I lost four babies before I had her, so maybe I just look like I appreciate it more."
And off we rolled.
