Happy Mother's Day Mom!


Thanks for changing my diaper more times than you can count, wiping smeared snot off my face, cleaning up my throw up when I couldn't make it to the bathroom, and for all the other gross things good moms do.

Thank you for dressing me stylish and putting my hair in a side pony tail so I wouldn't feel out of place at school.

Thanks for making "rolled-ups" every other weekend, even when you didn't want to.

Thank you for teaching me the importance of not giving up.

Thanks for coming to ALL of my orchestra concerts and softball, volleyball, and basketball games.

Thanks for buying me that prom dress I wanted, and then you proceeded to buy two $20 bottles of lipstick for me at Clinique, just for something special for that night. I lost one of them at prom by the way.

Thanks for taking me to buy a new outfit when a boyfriend broke up with me to make me feel a little better.

Thanks for letting me drop you off at work an hour early, just so I could take the van to school. I didn't even know I was dropping you off early until a few months ago. That's how little you complain.

Thanks for spoiling my kids when we visit...I loved when my grandmas did that.

Thanks for giving me my motherly instincts and strengths.

Thanks for being my mom. I love you!
