I am so glad I have a daughter and I will tell you why.
1. My mom informs me that each of her ailments is hereditary. After spending time taking care of Mama after her hip replacement surgery I realize that you really need daughters to take care of you. The hip problem is hereditary……so are the polyps on the colon……and so on and so on and so on. Once you throw in the diabetes on my dad’s side of the family, I swear our family tree is trying to kill us.
2. If you must have someone helping you bathe then you want it to be the person that you gave birth to. It is less awkward if you have daughters. Here is the way I see it. If it makes you uncomfortable to see your mom naked then it is just payback for the 9 months that you made her so uncomfortable. Emma has really got it coming when I get older.
I have had a good time hanging out with my mom and sisters over the past week. We have joked around and there is nothing better than talking to your mom when she is high on painkillers. I really hope that Emma will take care of me when I have a hip replacement in 30 years. If she doesn’t then I have two sisters that better come over and help me take a shower and put clean panties on. Otherwise I’m telling mom…..
