Mother’s Day: Oh The Memories

Now that Mother’s Day is almost here, I am reminded of a funny joke I usually play on my kids. Each year, I pull out the box of old cards, poems, and artwork and, while sitting at breakfast, chime in with, “These are a reminder of all the nice stuff you used to say about mommy!”

Naturally, their eyes get all big and wide, and they immediately start saying stuff like, “Oh, mom, stop!” and “You know we still love you.” But I keep on reading in a cute mommy voice … Like the card that says, “My mommy is pretty because she has striped hair.” Or, “My mommy is the best mommy there is, and that’s all I have to say about that!” My kids are so much older now, so the entire charade embarrasses them a little bit. In their defense, everything I do is just for show. I am incredibly blessed to be a mom and wife, and I really do get treated like a Queen on Mother’s Day. Not sometimes, or most of the time – but all of the time.

My husband, Scott, always goes out of his way to make sure I have the best gifts and even brings me breakfast in bed from time to time. The kids, no matter how fast they are growing up, are quick to make me the homemade stuff I adore so much – the poems, trinkets, and cards. I love those because it means they took the time to sit down, think about how much I mean to them, and create something from the heart.

I keep all of it. And yes, I still like to look back on them from time to time. What are your favorite Mother’s Day memories? Reach out to us on social media and share photos or funny stories. You never know, we may print some of them in the next issue.
