Delaney: Why are you doing this thing, Mom?
The research project? It’s part of my degree. Getting a Ph.D. means learning to do research and find out new things.
Delaney: The Ph.D. means I can call you Dr. Mom?
Yes, it’s the highest degree that I can earn and it is well respected in my work.
Delaney: That’s perfect for you, Mom! You are already well respected.
Thank you, Delaney.
One thought on “Earning respect.”
Ah gee, are you trying to make a grandma cry? Damn, but my baby girls are just too cool.
