My kids are sticklers for giving gifts on the designated day that gifts are supposed to be given. So, I have no pictures of their Mother's Day artwork as they are guarding it fervently until Sunday morning. Instead, I leave you with this note from a little girl named Emma, whose card has been dubbed "The Best Mother's Day Card Of All Time" by the Huffington Post.
It is pretty awesome.
She loves her mom more than chocolate, and even more than mustaches! If this mom ever doubted her parenting skills, she can totally rest easy! And the use of that colorful language, hey, young Emma did preface it with an apology. Let her mother worry about where she learned it after Mother's Day has passed.
To my own mom, if it weren't for you, I wouldn't know of Andreas Vollenweider, would have never conducted a French Fry taste test between McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's (McD's was the clear winner), or would have known how to give the stanky eye-brow. You're gifts keep on giving and they have served me well.
Here's to you, Mom. Thank you and I love you never seem like enough, but I'll keep saying it. I'd planned to post a recipe that you often served during my chilhood, but Lung Yan's Chinese Restaurant doesn't have an online menu.
Just kidding. . .they really do.
XOXO! Happy Mother's Day, y'all.
