5 Reasons We Love Mom May 04 2015, 0 Comments

  1. She’s the personal assistant we never asked for (but, in retrospect, desperately needed).

That important appointment you nearly forgot about were it not for her reminder text? The nagging question of “Did you remember to pack your toothbrush?” as you were backing down the driveway for a week-long family vacay giving you just enough time to run back inside and grab it? The constant reminder to clean up your room and do your homework as you were growing up that you hated but that actually instilled responsibility in you? Yeah. Thanks, Ma.

  1. She’s our own personal Hype Man*. (*Woman)

Mom is our own built-in fan club, minus the creepy fan-fic. She has this uncanny way of making whatever you’re doing sound way cooler than it actually is. “Why, yes, my child works closely with executives at one of the top production companies in the city!” (Really, you just answer phones and make Excel spreadsheets all day.) 

  1. She’s omniscient.

Like the God seated in the heavens above, she knows everything. (And we mean everything.) You know that groundbreaking epiphany you had the other day about what your life purpose was? She already knew, because she knows you better than you know yourself. Must have something to do with the whole “attend to your every need for 18 years straight” thing that gives her this sixth-sense insight.

  1. She’s a How-To Book on Life in human form.

Wait, so how long exactly does bacon last before you have to throw it out? How often should you water that potted plant you bought on a whim? How exactly do you go about applying for a loan? She’s the answer to our every S.O.S.

  1. She teaches us how to put up with difficult people.

Mom’s put up with us for so many years and yet somehow still manages to not only like us, but love us. If she can love us through our toddler temper tantrums, childhood pouting, angsty teen years, unfocused young adult era, and so much more, then we can at least tolerate that annoying co-worker in the cubicle next to us who smacks his gum and plays his early 00’s punk rock way too loud. 

Treat your Mom to a gift from BOCONI Bags & Leather this Mother’s Day. But more than anything, call her up and tell her how much you love her. She deserves it.
