We realize you’ve been doing this mom thing for a long time. From the very beginning, even.
We want you to realize that we appreciate everything you do.
Like teaching us the basics, including fingers and toes:
And tucking us in at night, even though we are wriggling little minions:
And getting us ready for our first day of school:
And making special holidays for us, including muddy trips to the pumpkin patch:
And helping us build and properly accessorize our first snowman:
And creating family traditions that involve silly pajamas:
and great stuff to eat:
We appreciate the fact that your most favorite part of the day is probably our least favorite part of the day:
And that sometimes, you have to take a little time for yourself.
We appreciate all of that.
So for Mother’s Day, we hope you have a little peace and quiet:
A time for solitude:
A space for creativity:
And a lot of love, to you, from us.
Because most of all, we appreciate the love.
Happy Mother’s Day.
