Jay Maisel, on her daughter, Amanda:
When your child reaches 15 or so, certain transformations take place. Some say it’s hormonal, others know it’s the work of the devil. Your child suddenly perceives you as an imbecile. If you’re lucky, a lovable imbecile. You are also relegated to a position of irrelevance and a source of unbelievably stupid announcements and pronouncements.
Heartwarming little stories like these are so interesting to read. I hope Jay Maisel writes more.
