Dear Momma | A To-Do List

Hi Momma,

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.

But….
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.

 

IMG_3761Make sure you keep teaching me how to be a lady. I love listening to you and – well, since I learn from you every time we talk, I didn’t want to skip today.

 

IMG_3515And, could you make sure to give me some hugs like you always do? Your love for us has made us strong and know that we are safe.

 

IMG_3273And 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.

 

IMG_3034And just because it’s your day, you won’t stop supporting me and having my back, right? Because nothing makes me prouder than when I achieve something and you’re there to cheer me on.

 

IMG_2808And 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.

 

IMG_2521And 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.

 

IMG_3976and 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.

 

IMG_3371Would you still make time today to sing to me and rock me? Your hands make me feel safe and warm and I love when you take care of me.

 

IMG_3917Could 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.

 

IMG_4064Would you make sure I can still lean on you? NObody gives me more strength here on earth than you do. Just to wrap my arms around you makes me feel like I can do anything.

 

IMG_2269Would 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.

 

IMG_2644And just because it’s your special day, you won’t forget to still make me laugh, will you? No one can make me giggle and smile like you can.

 

IMG_2871And before the day is through, can you make time to take us on an adventure? We’re ready if you are. You make us curious about the world and want to make it a better place when we grow up.

 

IMG_3159One more thing, Momma. When I want to be a big kid and do things on my own, will you still have time to make sure I don’t fall? I know you’re always close by to protect me.

 

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.
