And by “all children” I mean “my children.” Of course, it might be good for your kids to learn these as well so I’ve made this Mother’s Day infographic printable if you so desire. Think of it as a cheat sheet to help make every day Mother’s Day.

Hahahahaha…”make every day Mother’s Day.” I nearly died laughing when I typed that.

    Great list. The tooth fairy forgot to come here Sunday night but good thing my daughter lost another tooth Monday and got to leave 2 last night. That tooth fairy sure is busy.

    Personally, I think she’s overworked and underpaid. ;)

    I know we had brownies every Sunday. And I knew Kyle could take the joke…he owes me for his bit of indecent exposure. ;)

    Super cute list. I especially agree with the part about not getting to three when I’m counting.

    Love this post! I, too, was a horrible tooth fairy and am glad that job is over for me now that my boys are 19 and 13! Whew! Many mornings the boys would wake up and say the tooth fairy forgot about them. I would find something to distract them and then “hide” the money under the pillow exclaiming “Here it is…you missed it!”

    Love this list!

    I love that you distracted your kids and then hid the money under the pillow. That is awesome. I’m smiling just thinking about it–how tricky is that?! :)
