I was part of a movement of "dinosaur moms" when I lived in Maryland (Astrodon Johnstoni is the Maryland state dinosaur.) Which is nothing more than this -- dinosaur moms delight in the half-feral nature of the beasties they parent, even as they whisper Shakespeare and Kierkegaard in their ears at night.

Righteous Mom # 5 Mom Racer
Mom: [catching Spritle playing with his chimp in the living room] Hey, what are you two doing?
Mom: Was that the same nothing that broke my last couch?
Spritle: No, that was a totally different nothing.
Don't let her psychadelic fashion sense fool you, Mom Racer is as sensible as her pancakes. She is the PB&J that holds the Racer family together when the champaign and caviar forces of this world try to break them apart.
