We asked you to submit Six-Word MOMoirs in tribute of Mother’s Day and the response was overwhelming! It didn’t take a Freud to analyze the importance of moms from the thousands of MOMoirs we received, but it did take a lot of tough decision making to choose our winners.
Our winners of Six-Word MOMoirs on being a mom:
“Sweetie, please don’t lick the dog.” - MamaC
“Tied his shoes. Ties mine now.” - AmyDoodle
“Mom four daughters, Dad’s estrogen tomb.” - nettiehartsock
