  • Episode Description
  • Sandra is very upset when she learns that her mother is coming to visit. She feels as though her mother doesn't love her because she is so different from her "normal" siblings and family members. Sandra changes her appearance to look "dull" because she thinks that is what her mother willl approve of. That same weekend, a male friend of hers also comes to visit. Sandra and Mary try to keep the two from meeting. Finally Sandra admits to her mother that she thinks her mother does not love her. Her mom admits that she was just like Sandra before she got married, but calmed down so she could fit in with Sandra's father (who is a minister) and that she loves Sandra just the same because there is never a dull moment with Sandra around. Mop and her mother end up meeting anyway, and they all go dancing.moreless
