A Mother's Day Bonus Edition

My niece got me into Taylor Swift. She's fourteen going on fifteen, passionate about music, and a total joy to be around. You can't not smile around her.

Talking on the phone with her about the newest album, she gushed, "Don't you just love the song Fifteen!! It's my favorite!" To which I replied, totally laughing, "That's because you're a teenager."

She asked what my favorite was and I said, "Best Day. It always makes me cry." And she replied quickly, "That's because you're a mom."

So today, even though I'm not her mom, she sent me this video. It still makes me cry.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there.


  1. Very sweet song. I was OK until she started talking about being three years old. That got me. I guess because my little girl just turned three :)


  2. Wow!

    I hope my kids feel like that about me when they're nineteen years old.

  3. This so had me crying and making me think about my sons and whether they feel this way about me and hoping they do!

  4. Makes you remember why it's so great to be a mom
