Mother-daughter hijinks! Angry Mom has set up the cover story and forced the daughter into going with it, true, but nobody said the daughter couldn’t throw a few wrenches into the works or make Mom’s job harder.

Ah, the ordinary life. Falling in love, holding hands, raising a child that isn’t your own, disappointing your parents. Yep. Totally ordinary. But is being ordinary overrated?

I’m a bit amazed to realize we’re only two weeks... More »
