Why I love my mom (among many other reasons)

So, as we were driving the kids home from swim lessons this morning, we were talking about words and ... well, that different families use different words.

Me: And that's why, in their house, they don't use the word "stupid." But in our house, you can ... as long as you're not calling a person stupid. You can use it to describe someone's actions or a situation ... or Congress.

Mom: [leans a little toward me] Don't worry, honey. I got it.

Me: Thanks, Mom.

Yeah. What would I do without her?
My sense of humor is often wasted on the under-14 set.
