Beanie overheard StraightMan and me talking about the continuing discussion about "tiger mothers" and she asked me what that meant. I think I said something about especially strict parents who do not let their daughters have sleepovers. To which Beanie replied: "But you let me have a sleepover."
So then I asked: "Do you think your parents are strict?"
"Because you get upset when I forget to listen to you and things like that." Then she laughed. I tickled her.
We both decided that what I am is not a tiger mother, but a "kitty mama."
