CIBC, your hair is gorgeous. Seriously.
Your mom doesn't know what she's talking about. I know it's hard, 'cause she's your mom, but you need to figure out how to relate to her in a way that keeps you a safe distance from the craziness.
I love my mom and we do get along, but it wasn't always this way. There are HUGE, broad swaths of topics of conversations that we cannot go near. It's just better that way.
If I can do it, you can too!
