A Happy Mother's Day

When I remember to breathe and to write and to read
When I dance and I laugh and I see

When I take pics and bake cakes and make messes
When we all dress in our craziest dresses

When I give hugs and hold firm and stay calm
When I slip a finger into one tiny palm

When I get giggles and hugs and "I love you"s
When I give us all an episode of Blue's Clues

When I plant kisses on faces and flowers in pots
When I am thanked for the latest wiping of snot

When we have days full of books and laughter and play
These all make for a Happy Mother's Day
