Dear Thoughtful and Kooky Mom

You Are…

You are a thoughtful and kooky mother.

You wonder if I am happy.

You hear me whisper, “I love you!”

You see me with a smile on my face.

You want me to be healthy.

You are a thoughtful and kooky mother.


You pretend to be a doctor when you help hurt or sick people.

You feel like a good mom, because you are.

You touch my face to clear the tears when I’m sad.

You worry if the house is clean enough.

You cry when you think of Max.

You are a thoughtful and kooky mother.
