Story a la Golden Girl Sophia Petrillo

Picture it. Springfield, July 25 2009, a mom sneaks into a Salad's bedroom for one last check before she rests her tired head. Her smallest daughter is curled, bottom up, in her blanket. Her wild haired daughter, with arms and legs stretched, looks less like a baby and more like a young girl. She pauses over her sleeping son as she does each night, asking God to make her a better mommy for him tomorrow. She brushes her hand over his cheek before opening the door to leave. Just as she closes the door, she hears a tiny whisper rise up from his crib, "Night, Mommy."

The moral of this story? Always try to be a better mommy.
