17 Moms Share the Best Notes Their Kids Ever Wrote Them

From first letters ever to funny poems from grown kids, moms treasure them all.

By Lorraine Allen

Moms get love, cuddles, and appreciation from their kids on some days more than others. And once kids start learning to write, they adorably choose to show these bursts of kindness, love, or attention to their parents with words they string together.

As the mom of a kindergartner, I have only in the past year or two become privy to this awesome world of getting little handwritten notes from my hyper-independent kid. One recent note, that she scribbled and slipped to me by total surprise under the dinner table over the holidays while the rest of us were still eating, was so touching that I had to frame it. It reads: “Mama, I am SO SO SO SO THANKFUL.” This note filled my heart, it really did. I keep it by my bed, and I’m sure I’ll treasure it forever. Here, 17 moms share their favorite notes from their own kids.

1. “Mommy, I love you, love you, love you, love you, love you FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER AND EVER!” -- Jennifer, New York
