You love your mama, right? You should. Chick brought you into this world and if her genetic make-up isn’t like Angelina Jolie’s, she ruined her body doing so. You need to thank her for that. And more.

Thank her for the sleepless nights; the ones when you were a helpless baby crying for food, a diaper change, or just plain old – “I WANNA BE HELD!” For the times she rocked you to sleep with a glassy, slightly mad, yet googly look in her eyes which was both – A combination of sleep deprivation and unconditional love.

Thank her for not shoving you in a drawer during those terrible twos. She gets it – You were frustrated. You were unable to properly articulate thoughts and had NO idea mommy wasn’t a mind reader.

Thank her infinite patience during the potty training phase. For cleaning up after your “accidents”. You remember: That time you woke up before everyone else and tried to keep yourself busy? To this day she is unable to look at her walls without wanting to spray them with Tylex. Or wanting to spray you with Tylex.

Thank her for her care. For the times when she held you as your temperature spiked to 104 degrees. Thank her for cleaning your boogies and for never flinching when doused in projectile vomit.

Thank her for putting on a brave face when dropping you off on the first day of school. She was doing it for you. Inside she was a hot mess.

Thank her for the endless help with homework; for secretly googling problems so she could confidently provide you with help. Thank her for the time she spent helping on projects. To this day her glue stick ninja skills remain intact.

Thank her for maintaining her sense of humor and her composure – As you grew and changed and changed and changed again.

Thank her for putting up with your teenage angst and not shoving you in a drawer when you gave her attitude because you’d rather play video games than take out the garbage.

Thank her for being your rock

  • Your friend
  • Your sounding board
  • For being hard on you when she felt you slipping
  • For loving you harder than she can articulate
  • For being a constant in every stage of your development

Thank her with a berry lemonade parfait. This berry lemonade parfait situation is so simple – A toddler can manage it. It’s really just macerated berries and lemon whipped cream, yet layered looks phenomenal. It’s light and tasty. It’s perfect and comes together in minutes once the berries are properly macerated.
