Sassy's Mom

I've written about my mom a lot on the blog, usually in her own voice (like when she gets drunk and Miley Cyrus bashes during the Oscars telecast, or is appalled by fashion spreads in the New York Times Magazine, or sends me emails about how I should reconsider my stance on harem pants). Every time I post about her, people ask when she is going to start her own blog, and when I tell her, she laughs and shakes her head. "I'm just Sassy's mom," she says.

No, mom...






I'm pretty sure I'm just your daughter.

Happy Mother's Day!

  6. You're lucky to have such a great mom. Mine is in a nursing home and doesn't know who I am. I am in Yellowstone for 6 months, but my husband visited her for Mother's Day. She's the only one we have. I hope every mother hears from their children today even if the relationship is strained. It's a good day to make up.

  20. You and your mother are both very beautiful. And you look so much alike. It reminds me of me and my mom. There are many things that we have that are similar about our personalities, but then there are parts of us that are polar opposites. But, the greatest gift a mother can give is to teach you lessons about life- whether to be just like her or completely opposite, it's because of our mothers that we realize the things in life that define who we are. :) Thank you, this post has reminded me just how special my own mother is to me.
