    October 2, 2006

    Dear Mom,

    I was wrong. It turns out that “because I said so” really is a good answer.

    My sincerest apologies,

    Antique Daughter

      I used to think that my mother was stupid… I apologised to her after my oldest was born!

      You made me Laugh Out Loud, for real. How true, even though I hate to admit it at times, it’s probably one of the best answers there is!

      I do remember forgiving my mother for many things that I thought were so “lame” after my first child was born… turns out we all just do the best we can and by goll, “Because I said so…” is a kick-booty answer!
