I’m guessing I was pretty much a handful for my barely 20-year-old mom.
Because the very first thing I remember is she spit at me.
It’s my first memory.
When she leaned over the side rail and spit smack in my face.
She said she didn’t do it.
Didn’t remember doing it.
But that’s what I remember.
Maybe I’d spit first, and it was a teachable moment.
Like the head banging . . .
