Me: "Well, Katie, I am not at all happy with this. BUT, I'm going to try to hold my temper because I don't want to yell at Daddy again during this hard week for him. And you KNOW how hard that will be for me, but I'm going to give it my best try."
Katie: "Mom, the strongest man in the world couldn't hold your temper."
(Then we both started laughing. I'm glad we can laugh about her experiences with menopause mom and her short temper...and I have to say, when Katie erupts, I know EXACTLY where that comes from. The Volcano Daughter is a close replica of her Volcano Mother!)
