Mothers: How do we love thee?


It truly is a shame that mothers get only one day to call their own. For most families, the mother is the cornerstone, the glue that keeps the unit together. She’s the house-cleaner, the chef and the schedule-keeper. She knows how to apply a Band-Aid perfectly, how to make it so the cookies are just soft enough in the center and when it’s OK to bend the rules just a bit.

In honor of all our East County moms, we visited several East County elementary and preschools to ask our kids one very important questions: “What do you love most about your mom?”
We hope you enjoy their answers, and from all of us at The East County Observer, we’d like to wish you a Happy Mother’s Day.
