Hey, Mom, we are pheMOMinal!
Momming it up all over the place.
You with your kind and patient face,
Telling me how and what to do
For oh, I don’t know, everything.
You taught me things that moms should say.
Like, “I love you, everything’s ok.”
Like, “You can do it, if you try.”
Like, “Keep your socks and mittens dry.”
And “Did you do your homework?”
Together, we explored so much
Museums, restaurants, plays, and such
Sewing patterns, recipes,
And contributing to society,
By always doing the right thing.
You taught me silly was ok
You listened to me every day
You gave me hugs and art supplies
You dried my tears those times I cried
And showed me bargain shopping perks.
You made it so I loved to read
You shared your books and said, “Godspeed”
And when I fought to stay up late
And read until my eyeballs ached
You filled my shelves with classic things.
You took me to the voting polls,
With “here check yes, and here check no,”
And how to pronounce “Democrat”
And why equality’s where it’s at,
And why rights can't be shirked.
You showed me how to find price drops
And how to pick out stylish tops
And what a-line dress looked like
And what fit well, what was too tight,
And how to hem, well, everything.
You made Christmas special, mom,
You stitched the dress I wore to prom
And when I dumped that guy
Who made me cry
You told me I’d done the right thing.
You helped me to be organized
And turn college forms in on time
And bought me tickets, cars, and phones
And always let me come back home
And advised me on my paperwork.
And when Wisconsin grew too cold
You made decisions, brave and bold
To join me here, in old NC
To start anew, and be near me
So that we could do tons of things!
I found a daughter of my own
And even though she’s almost grown
You invite her to family events
And give advice, your mom “two cents”
And help me build my “Mom Framework.”
And so, my mom, I love you so
And as my own small family grows,
I’ll ask questions like I always do
Enjoy you and confide in you
And need you still, for everything.
Because you are pheMOMinal!
And soon, I will be too.
