  2. Share one of your favorite memories together, like the last road trip you took together or that hilarious experience you had together.
  3. A picture is worth a thousand words, so why not throw in a recent pic of you two or an adorable one from when you were little!
  4. Say thank you. Remind her that she’s the reason you turned out so amazing. In all seriousness, a genuine thank you is always perfect for Mother’s Day.

For Your Bestie

"I knew you’d be an awesome mom someday. And I believe in my heart that someday we’ll get to use the bathroom alone again"


From Mom and Dad
