So to my mom: I’m sorry we teased you so much about protecting me from imminent danger on a Disneyland Rocket. I totally get it now.
To all you other moms who suddenly have fear where before you had none: You are not alone.
To all of you who have also felt like squished hot-dogs in your own lives: Thank Heaven for a mother who loves you.
And to all moms everywhere, thank you, on behalf of us ‘hot-dogs’ and Happy Mother’s Day.
