Kids love moms simply because they’re their moms. That’s what most would have you think, but the real reasons prove it’s the little things that matter most.
We asked kids at Meadows Elementary School in Newhall what makes their mom so great, and their answers are almost sure to either melt your heart or make you laugh.
Transitional-kindergarten twins Juliet and Charlotte Gray love their mommy because… “She’s special,” and she’s special because… “I got born in her tummy,” Juliet said. “I like to snuggle with her.” While Charlotte loves to hug her mommy and thinks her mommy is special because… “She helps me get ready for school.”
“I love my mom because she always helps me with everything and if I have trouble she’s always there for me,” said fourth-grader Katie Bunning. “She always tucks me in at night, and that’s why I love her.” Her mom is special because… “My mom is a substitute teacher, and one time, she substituted our class.”
I love my mom because… “She’s always making food, and I love food,” said fourth-grader Dani Jones. “And she helps me with homework because sometimes I get really stuck.” Her mom is special because… “If a really good friend dies, she can help me, my brother and my dad get through that.”
First-grader Audrey Bowen loves her mom because… “She always does a lot of things for me like plays games with me when I have nothing else to do, and when I ask her if I can show her how good I can jump rope, she actually watches me.” Her mom is special because… “She’s different from all the other moms and she’s really nice.”
I love my mom because… “when I’m sad she helps me, because when I’m sad I’m actually really sad,” first-grader Remington French said, and his mom is special because… “She reads me a book before bed time and we do eeny, meeny, miny, moe.”

Whatever the reason, moms make the world go round, so wherever you are, make sure your mom knows why you love her on Mother’s Day.
