My teenage son entered a competition for me to become the best mother of the year. The prize was a pandora bracelet worth over $800. Wow my son had to state what his mum meant to him and what his mum does for him. Well he gave a list saying i was lovable, caring, beautiful, cuddly and warm. He said i clean his room, washes his clothes, cooks beautiful tea and snacks. The judge of the competition opened some of the contestants forms and was disgusted in some of the responses about their mothers. The judge chose my son as his entry was sincere and beautiful. So many teenagers in this competition had negative views so did not probably have great role models in their life. Im glad i won the bracelet. Everytime i look at the bracelet i remember what my son said about me. I love him heaps. I have never won anything so much except for a cement mixer. This prize was a personal and sentimental.

  • what a heart warming story my Mum still has the letter the editor of the paper sent her that I wrote when i was 5 and has kept it now for 42 years. These things mean so much to Mum’s to know what their kids think of their Mum’s but was shocked to read that they got letters that where not nice at all


    • Yes its amazing what mums keep. Ive still got their christening cards paintings etc all in memory boxes. I gave my daughters theirs as they have children now and their faces are priceless when i handed it to them. Its even got the first pregnancy test, their cord peg, sunglasses, forks, spoons, their first dress newspaper clippings and baptism tapes with the sounds of their cries.
