Splash du Jour: Wednesday

Mothers, I believe, intoxicate us. We idolize them and take them for granted. We hate them and blame them and exalt them more thoroughly than anyone else in our lives. We sift through the evidence of their love, reassure ourselves of their affection and its biological genesis. We can steal and lie and leave and they will love us.
-- Megan Mayhew Bergman, Birds of a Lesser Paradise --

Have a great Wednesday!

I like to think I’m “intoxicating” – even if it’s just to my kids. ;)
I’m going to check out this book.
