What hell has the Harvest goddess released on poor JaiLi. The biggest reason JaiLi is as humble and modest as she is is her mother, who has magically appeared at Hodge Podge. Her mother, Beth Ann the joltik, put a lot of her identity into being a doctor's wife, so when JaiLi's father passed away, she went a little nuts. She suddenly wanted to be the 'cool mom' and try to hang out with the popular kids' moms so her daughter could be cool, too. This didn't work out for JaiLi at all, as she was a swadloon at the time and was constantly made fun of by the popular kids. It exacerbated the big rift between them that had formed when her father passed and ended with JaiLi moving out as soon as she was of legal age.
Beth Ann scrambled to find a new husband, bringing home a lot of odd men until she found a rich (but cold) kingdra lawyer and she started to build a new identity. She believes in 'being young', which really means her acting like she's sixteen and investing in botox and breast implants (hey, her husband's rich). Next to go will be her 'bingo wings' on her arms. So needless to say, this is going to be a long week for JaiLi and Lazlo. Oh, and speaking of Lazlo, Beth Ann hasn't met him yet.
