did I ever tell you about the time....

that my daughter, then aged 6, found a BUMPER STICKER in a drawer and put it on my butt and I forgot about it and went out into the world? That's right, I went into a fabric store proudly sporting a bumper sticker that showed a line-drawing of a very curvy woman that said "Change how you see, not how you look."

On. my. ass.

But who knows? Maybe a woman who needed that message that day saw me and felt just a little bit better about herself. Afterall, SHE wasn't the one out in public with a sticker on her back bumper.

There's a new TV series going to start that uses actual stories from real mothers, and turned into tv shows. You really could submit stories for the entire series. !
I think its called Motherhood. Not sure. Will watch for it.

The bumper sticker could have been worse. How about "Children Love Me but Fish Fear me!"

Oh, this just made my morning. Seriously. You make me want to buy bumper stickers and post them liberally on my tush every morning, so when life sneaks up behind me, I'll at least catch it off-guard.

I think I love your daughter.
