My question for you is, are you a better mom to your kids than what you experienced? Or do you serve them white rice with powdered milk too?

Getting back to the original letter, I believe, given 500,000,000 (half billion) apple pies and receiving 500.000.000 different responses, there will only be one answer. My moms is the best. even if it only an apple sliced and baked with the worst pie crust in the world, my moms was the best, because of what she put into it. I know that this is as smarmy, obsequious, unctuous, gushy, fawning and sycophantically "Hallmark Moment" as they come, but it is the love and effort that she put into the pie, and the love appreciation which we gave back to her. My lemon meringue tarts however were much better than hers.
Happy Mothers Day "Wilma" to the mother of my daughter "Pebbles" and to my mother "Edna Flintstone" and to "Pearl Slaghoople" my mother in law.
