I've mentioned before that my mom and I have a somewhat complicated relationship, right? Right. So the following story should not come as a surprise to anyone, least of all me.
Mom texted me yesterday to tell me about a story she'd just read online. Maybe you read it, too. I had. A woman gave birth to quintuplets.
The end of Mom's text? "Are you sure you've just got one in there?"
I wanted to respond with, "You know, some people would think you're calling me fat."
Or more to the heart of the problem, "Yes, and if you had bothered to come to any of the appointments we've had over the past eight months, you'd know that."
Instead I said nothing. To her.
