Mary, thank you for this heart-story. My only daughter just turned 11 and I'm feeling these emotions turning on. That little sock stunt is very much something she would think to do! And, our dog hoards socks. ;P

I could feel your pain and I remember being the angry daughter too. Wow--life sure is something.

I'm saving this essay for comforting I know I'll need. <3
