Oh, Deb - that gives me hope. My strong-willed one didn't blossom with the fit-pitching till high school, and at 22 and teaching second grade, she has turned sweet as pie to everyone EXCEPT her mom! Perhaps when she has her own little pillow-puncher....!

I loved this story. Hilarious! Isn't it funny how certain "incidents" in our lives turn into to be some of the most cherished memories?

I've got a good one on my daughter when she decided to give me a little sass for the first time at a very young age. But it's a bit too long for a comment.
Maybe I'll blog about it one of these days....

Thanks for sharing your special memory with everyone.

So true, Wendy...when she has her own little pillow-puncher she'll think you hung the moon!

Thanks for the encouraging words! And Susan, glad I could inspire a blog. : )

I've entered you both in the drawing for my books, which will take place later this week.

Have a great week!


I think I'd have been absolutely shocked to see my own picture on that pillow! Not shocked in knowing, but shocked in the amount of anger. Kids--they never fail to test us!


Oh Deb, I just loved your sharing of your strong willed daughter. We have one as well who is also a adult with children of her own. I remember when she would complain to me about her daughter and I would turn around and say "like mother, like daughter". I would love to win your book.
