My Kids Answer The Question: “What Makes Your Mom Awesome?”

Mother’s Day is fun for me, and not necessarily for the candies or the nice meal or the homemade coupons that get lost within the month. Mother’s Day is fun because it’s the one day when if I ask my kids what they think about their ol’ Mom, they’re obligated to say nice things. Or at least be several degrees more vocal with their appreciation than any other day.

Take, for instance, the question I asked my kids last night: what makes ME (your mother) awesome? My oldest daughter said I’m awesome for the way I juggle our hectic lives while my husband is away (which is fairly often). My 9yo son said I’m awesome because I’m honest, a hard worker, and I give him stuff. And when my 3yo was asked, he simply answered with his arms wide and an ethusiastic “this much!” {hey, I’ll take it!}

But when I asked my 12yo daughter to record herself answering the question “What Makes Your Mom Awesome?,” I didn’t expect to get this powerful video in return. Warning: grab a hankie (and ignore any weird spelling/grammar errors in the video. bad me!).

I’m not sure I deserved all that, but it was really pretty wonderful to hear.

With Mother’s Day around the corner, there are a lot of people looking for ways to tell their mom “You’re Awesome.”

I’ve featured and reviewed the fabulous stationary/greeting card/custom invitation company Tiny Prints before on my blog, and I’m happy to spotlight them again as a wonderful resource for a variety of Mother’s Day cards. Whether it’s your mom friends, your sister who’s a mom, your mother-in-law, or your own mother who deserves a “You’re Awesome” this year, check out the Mother’s Day card shop from Tiny Prints, where there’s something for everyone.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I still have some tears to wipe away from ┬ámy daughter’s video. But first maybe I’ll watch it a few more times and remember why the hard work of Motherhood really is worth it in the end.
