My Mom is a babe

Dear Mom,

Everyday of the year should be your day because:

You love my goofy side, like when I'm dancing around the kitchen in my unmentionables and you say, "Amanda put some clothes on! What if the neighbours see you? You don't want to be an exhibitionist," while trying to hide your laughter.

You put up with grumpy morning Amanda, sarcastic Amanda, just got home from sitting in 2 hours of traffic Amanda...and so on.

You listen to my theories on life and try not to wince when I tell you my dreams of traveling the world and moving away. "I don't want to be a webcam Grandmother," you say.

You know my favourite type of green tea and that I like cucumbers cut with the skin still on them.

You are my greatest fan despite me exclaiming that you're biased. "It's not because you're my daughter. I would say this even if I just met you," you always say.

Your unwavering faith in me makes me want to do better in all areas of my life.

I can't fully describe in words how great you are or how grateful I am to have you in my life, as no child really can, so instead I'll just say I love you!

Happy Mother's Day & Birthday Mom! xoxo

For all of my readers out there who have moms, give them your love today & everyday.

Ps- How adorable is my yellow hoodie poncho?
