So, first Norah told me she really preferred her Dad's singing to mine. Apparently, he knows all the good songs. Tonight? I had just gone for a run and tried to give her a kiss. She said, "Mom, come back after you take a shower. You stink."

At least I know I'll always get an honest answer...


  1. that is hilarious, i think she gets it from you!

  2. Many years ago, but when I was much older than Norah is now...somewhere in those blissful teen years, I turned to my mom and said, completely sincerely "Mom, Toms of Maine isn't cutting it. We need to buy you new deodorant." She's still grateful, because you don't let someone you love walk around smelling bad. Norah's got your best interest in mind.
