After a trip to Carmel on Dec 16,   2002
Jackie called to complain about
Laci.  "She looked so silly" she
said. "She was wearing white
gloves and a white scarf.  She
looked like Minnie Mouse."


"You didn't say anything," I asked.
"No, but the next day she wore
black gloves and a black
scarf, and it wasn't much of an
improvement." Jackie replied.

JACKIE PETERSON REMARKS
ABOUT LACI TO ANNE BIRD
LACI
On our trip with the family to Disneyland
in November 2002, I said to Laci,
"I'm so glad you're having a boy",
"Me too" said Laci.  "What do you think of
the name 'Logan?'"  "I love it" Anne replied.
"I don't.  I don't like it at all" Jackie piped up
in a very mean way.  When I looked at
Laci, she looked as if someone had
slapped her across her face.
In her book, Bird seemed puzzled
by her mother's thinly veiled dislike
for Scott Peterson's bubbly wife.


Bird churned out vignettes in proof:
Jackie Peterson critiquing her daughter-
in-law's thank-you cards, nastily objecting
to Laci Peterson's wish to name her
son Logan, and turning her nose up at her
daughter-in-law's hometown Modesto.


"I was beginning to understand why Jackie
was so critical of Laci," Bird wrote. "No one
was good enough for her golden boy."
Shortly after a baby shower for Laci, I received
a card.  "Thank you for the books and toys.  I
can't wait until Conner can play with them and
read with Ryan & Tommy (Anne's boys)."


I thought it was a lovely card.  I loved the fact she
was already thinking of our boys playing together.


Jackie called the same day to tell me she received a
card and asked if I liked mine.  "Yes", I said.  "It was
lovely, why?"   "I didn't like the way mine was written,"
she said.  "What was wrong with it?" I asked.


"It just didn't seem right. I'm going to send
her a book on how to write thank you notes."


"Please don't do that." I said.  "My card was
perfectly lovely.  And it will only upset her.
Why upset her when she's so close to having
the baby?"   Luckily, Jackie dropped the idea.
Jackie made a face and said  "Laci is
such a perfectionist.  She always
has to redo everything.  You give her
something that's already perfect, but
she'll still find away to improve it."
It wasn't a compliment, Jackie seemed
to be hinting that Laci took Martha Stewart
a little more seriously than nature intended.
"Jackie Peterson  told me she couldn't stand
Modesto, and she was worried that Laci
was going to talk Scott into moving there.
"It's a nothing little town on the wrong side of
the tracks," Jackie said. "I don't like it at all."
