Title?

How about I write a book: Tales of a Real Mother: A View from the Not-So-Cheap Seats.

Too on the nose?

My aunt Connie told me "mother" was a bad word when I was 12 or 13. She said if a boy said it, I should slap his face and tell him not to talk like that around a lady. It was a long time before I got the difference between you mother and my mother. Kind of like dam and damn.
(sigh)
Life was so simple then.

Life is simpler than we make it.

Nothing wrong with being "on the nose."

Love.
