Response 3: Moms are the BEST
Simply put, my mom is a bad-ass therapist. She is widely known (at least in our family) for taking no prisoners when it comes to her clients. She is honest with them even if that means being a little snarky. So when I was reading Candyce's blog about the Teen Mom II finale with Dr. Drew, I thought a lot about how my mom would have handled those girls.
So when it comes to motherly advice, she can't be beat. But while I'm in the midst of listing my laundry list of "things that are turning me into a gooey clump of stress," her favorite thing to say to me is "I'm so sorry about you." I still haven't figured out what this means exactly. She's not sorry FOR me... she's sorry ABOUT me. Hm. She cracks me up every time she says it and I've been trying to remind myself to do a pretty drawing with that statement. The drawing above is not pretty. I did it in about five minutes so I could get this post in for class. Maybe this is why I am a gooey clump of stress... see what I did there?
