#1. My then 8yr old son wrote me a card for Fathers Day…as I was a single mum.
Inside he wrote….”Dear Mum…thanks for being the best 2 parents ever rolled into one…your the best mum and dad any kid could wish for and I love you more than words can say.”

Needless to say I still have this card more than 14yrs later and read it when having a crappy day. – Rebecca W
