So, in addition to sending my mom “tired” flowers on Mother’s Day, I took to Twitter to see how everyone else’s Mother’s Day was going. Naturally, my mind drifted to the world’s most famous mom du jour, Tiger Mom, and her daughters, and what sort of Mother’s Day present you give to a woman who might throw it back in your face and say, “I reject this.”
Soon, I received an answer.
STRAIGHT FROM THE TIGER CUB’S MOUTH.
Of course I demanded pics. Sophia, who is Amy Chua’s older daughter, then directed me to New Tiger in Town–a blog about her life and her family, in her own words–and a funny Mother’s Day post she wrote containing the photo evidence I was seeking:
In her Tweet, she also hinted at her bright, much-talked about future:
OMG I LOVE YOU TIGER CUB.
And, you know, I gotta hand it to Amy Chua here, because if her daughter can be this self-deprecating and charming after their entire family’s been scrutinized, criticized, and demonized publicly, I have to think that Tiger Mom’s been doing something right all along.
