I have many topics I could write about this evening, but it is late so I’ll leave you with this:
“…My kids don’t need to be exposed to our mother’s explosive, pyrotechnic, shit show behavior. It’s unfortunate enough that we were forced to deal with her abuse growing up. I refuse to subject my children to her behavior even if only for a weekend while you’re in town…”
I feel like I deserve some type of toxic family literary award for conjuring such an apt description.
