    I got that crap about "always let the boys win" or some variation. I replied that if I lost the contest--or won--I would do it honestly. I also got not-so-subtle cues to play down my intelligence, which wasn't going to happen. My mother and I had very different perspectives on life.

    I am still trying to be the person my son needs me to be and not always succeeding. Life is a work in progress.
