How to get rid of Monster Mommy in 6 easy steps:

First, recruit backup. A Nana is perfect for the job.

Next, give them a Popsicle anyway, even if they didn’t eat their lunch.

Then, take one of these to wash off the Monster smell. Do not skip this step.

Don’t forget to have one of these. Or, if Monster Mommy is really mean, have two.

Also, be sure to notice the peonies blooming in your front yard. Monster Mommy can’t prevail in their presence.

Finally, remember…you are loved anyway.

Repeat if necessary.
