I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day with your moms and let them know just how loved and special they are! Working with infants through pre-kindergarteners serves as a constant reminder that the most important people on the planet are parents. At school, students give me hugs and play with me, but you should see the way they run to their moms and dads when it’s time to go home.
In honor of mothers everywhere, your writing prompt for the next two weeks is to create a story centered around a mother-child relationship. Below are a few quotes to get your creativity started.
“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.” – Sophia Loren
“Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is also synonymous with servanthood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves.” – Charles Stanley
“My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.” – George Washington
