Dear Daughters: Mother’s Day in Reverse

my girls

Dear Daughters,

Today’s celebration is backwards in my mind.

I should be doing something special for YOU.


Why?

*You keep me on my toes.

*You keep me safe.

*You don’t tolerate wrong thinking.

*You love your father.

*You take care of me when I visit.

*You don’t like it when I bark up your tree- especially when I need to climb my own.

* You answer my repeated questions.

*You are inspired by the underdog.

*You don’t care Dad and I call the remote the changer.
 
*You don’t agree with everything I say.

*You begin comments regarding my fashion choices with, “I am not a fan…”

*You’re cool.

Happy Daughters’ Day

I love you, Mom

You have beautiful daughters and I love the idea of reversing the holiday. Our daughters (and sons) are the reason we get to be moms in the first place.

You said it and I second it! Y'all are gorgeous and really should consider print ads for anything and everything.

I alway felt this way too. My children's birthdays have always felt like a birthday for me too. They make us who we are. Hope you had a great Mothers Day

Beautiful post, and what an amazing group of women are pictured in that photo. I know you are as proud of each and every one of them as they are of you.

My oldest daughter will say I am not a fan... while the youngest just says I don't like it! Such tact huh?
