In all the annuals of Momdom you are the bee’s knees. As we celebrate Mother’s Day 2011 here are 5 Mom moments that stand out:
1. I think I was 6 months old when you and dad “accidentally” locked me in the car.
I remember you seemed pretty worried at the time. Don’t feel bad; all new moms forget about their kids occasionally. It’s OK. What matters is that you didn’t leave me there. That always meant a lot to me.
2. You made sure that I got the help I needed when I was struggling to read.
It was a difficult time for me and now I realize that it wasn’t so easy for you either. Thanks for being patient and sacrificing so that I could be a more successful adult. It has paid off! All your hard work has allowed me to wordsmith such super-terrific pieces of literature as this card you hold in your hand.
3. You didn’t spoil my childhood by bringing another kid into the mix.
What’s the point of a brother or sister? All they would have done was taken up prime real-estate in my room, sucked precious resources out of my future inheritance, and been overshadowed by my unattainable greatness. Thank you for curtailing your proclivity to procreate. Compared to me, they would have just been a letdown to you and dad anyway.
4. You always kept your promises.
Which reminds me, I’m still waiting on that hover car your generation said we would have by the year 2000. I know it’s on the top of your “To Do” list, but you haven’t mentioned it in a while so I thought now would be a good time to bring it up.
5. You are still reading this list.
In my own socially awkward way, I hope this communicates how much I love and appreciate you. I hope you feel that today.
