The moms in my head are at war.
One mom says, “Arsenic! Lead! Bad things! Cancer!” This is the mom who researches sunscreen on the SkinDeep database. This is the mom who demands that the children’s bubble bath be phthalate free, though she is vague on what, exactly a phthalate is. This is the mom who buys free-range pork chops and never uses pesticides.
The other mom is like, “Shut up, it’s summer. Coppertone didn’t kill us, neither did Mr. Bubble, and how bad is a hotdog from Jess’s every now and then?”
Fun Mom punched Responsible Mom in in the face and brought out the camera and the sense of humor. Here’s hoping she was right.
