This chapter tells the story of the author's mom and how she was more fun than other moms. The author's mom jumped on the trampoline and made snow angels with her children, but she was still momlike when necessary—rubbing her huge, soft hands over their bellies when they got butterflies. The author's dad was tall, and there was nothing the author loved more than looking at the sidelines during one of her soccer games and seeing that her dad had appeared in his navy blue suit with a big smile on his face to see her and her brother play. The author's mom also worked, but she didn't wear a suit, and the author had no idea what her mom did. Something involving lots of groups of women with permed hair and dangly earrings. Either her mom or Rita, the babysitter, was home with them after school, and then her dad came home a few hours later.
