What do children wish they could do for their moms? Here’s an interesting look at how kids think their moms want to be honored!  Amy

We asked the kiddos of some of our favorite bloggers: “If you could do anything at all to make Mother’s Day special for YOUR mom, what would you do?” Their funny and heartwarming ideas may not be what Mom actually wants, but they sure are an interesting look at how little ones view that very special lady in their lives!
