It's a good thing to have, the mommy filter. It keeps me looking level when dealing with my children.
The output end of the filter delivers:
"What happened? Baby, do you need a kiss? Let me help you up,"
when from the input side, the mind pushes through something more like:
"WHAT?! You're running around like a moron in stockings, and you forget there are stairs between the hall and living room? Oh, that's right, we've only lived here for four years, you great clumsy oaf!!!"
Hooraaaaaaaay mommy filter!!
