Cuddles and Chaos | Just Ask Sam: Mother's Day

Cuddles and Chaos | Just Ask Sam: Mother's DayWith Mother’s Day right around the corner, I thought it would be pretty fitting to sit down with Sam to see what she thinks about mothers and Mother’s Day.

She was very serious and official and seemed to be prepping for a beauty pageant and/or for a career as a politician. In my opinion, she’d be fantastic at both.

Why do we celebrate Mother’s Day?

To celebrate how much we love mothers. We love them because they take care of us just right and they’re so nice to us. On Mother’s Day we give mothers presents. We give them breakfast in bed.

Do you think it’s important? Why?

I think it’s important because it’s good to celebrate how much we love mothers. It’s important to celebrate Mother’s Day because it’s good to celebrate how much mothers do to take care of us. Mothers feed us, put us to sleep, and let us play.

If you could give me anything for Mother’s Day what would it be?

A castle or a million dollars. It would be fun to be rich and a castle would be nice.

What’s your favorite thing about your mommy?

That I love her and she loves me. I know she loves me because she gives me a kiss a thousand times every day.

What do you think a mom’s three most important jobs are?

  1. To take care of their children.
  2. To feed their children.
  3. And to put their children to bed.

If you were a mom what are three rules your kids would have to follow?

  1. Don’t go outside without me or daddy.
  2. When you play on your bike or scooter, make sure you wear a helmet.
  3. You have to go to bed at 8 o’clock.

If you were a mom what would you let your kids do that you can’t do?

Jump on the bed.

Personally, I think she just gave me the best Mother’s Day gift of all: she showed me that I’m doing a pretty OK job at raising a tiny human. I couldn’t be more proud of the person this little booger is turning out to be.

PS If you need a last minute gift for your mommy, I’ve got an easy coconut body butter recipe that I promise she’ll love!
