My mom deserves the spa day prize so she can finally be relaxed. Usually, she’s cooking, cleaning and helping our shul plan events. (That takes up lots of her time.) She is such a cool mom. She lets us do amazing things like letting me walk by myself to the lake near our house, letting me bake a huge cookie cake from a recipe that usually makes 5 dozen small cookies, and letting everyone have a whipped cream pie fight in the yard. (She actually did that.) But the best thing about her is that I can talk to her and she will make me feel better about whatever I’m worried about.
