I know today is the day we’re supposed to make sure we treat you extra special and let you rest. I really hope you like the card and flowers we got you. We love getting you gifts and making sure you know how much we love you.
When you get a chance, could you look over this list of things we need? I don’t mean to bother you on your special day, but these are things that really can’t wait. So, maybe in a little while, you can make sure that you get to these before the day is past? Because I sure wouldn’t want to go a day without them.
And while you’re at it, could you make sure you dress me really cute like you always do? It really boosts my self-confidence when you take time to clean me and make sure I’m always dressed so adorably.
And I really can’t wait to spend time with you today, but can you call Grammy over to play? There’s nothing I love better than having my mommy and grandma with me. She’s just as much as a gift to me as I am to her.
And if I wake up from my nap, and get a little scared from a nightmare, you’ll still be there today to hold me as long as I want, right? There’s nothing in the world that makes me feel better than your arms around me.
and after my nap, could we still play together and play dress-up? I want to look just like you when I grow up. I watch what you wear and what you say and keep it all stored away in my mind for later. I hope you’ll still have time to do that with me today.
Could we make time to still have a heart-to-heart like you always do with us? We sometimes act like were not interested but we respect you and love you dearly. There’s no else that can give us advice like you can.
Would you be able to tell us stories? We love them so much and it makes us more adventurous and creative when you take time to stir our little imaginations. It makes us better playmates when we have stories to act out.
So, Happy Mother’s Day. I’m sorry I couldn’t give you a day off without some sort of to-do list, but – I know you won’t mind.
It’s one of the reasons you’re the best mom ever.
