    May Day Mom Contest 2017
    “My mom is the best. She spends time with me. She takes me shopping. She paints my nails. She lets me cook with her. She takes care of me. She makes sure that we have food. She makes sure that we have water to drink. She makes us safe and lets us have a good home. There are reasons why my mom is the best ever.”
