This coming Sunday is all about celebrating the special mother-figures in your life, and it’s not hard to understand why there’s an entire day dedicated to it! Mother’s Day is celebrated the world over to recognize all the hard work, dedication, and happiness that comes along with motherhood. Whether it’s driving the carpool to soccer practice, working extra hours to save for a college fund, or offering you a secret cookie before dinner, moms keep the world turning. They deserve a thank you every now and then for all of their (often unnoticed) hard work!
Oftentimes, the best way to say thank you is to reflect on some of your favorite memories with your mom and really appreciate the relationship you have together. We went around the Mosquito Joe office this week and asked our Joes to share some special activities and memories with mom that always bring a smile to their face.
My Favorite Memory/Thing to Do with Mom Is:
“Baking cookies with her and having her attend my sporting events. And in recent years, watching her play with my kids.” Kevin Wilson, CEO
“One of my favorite memories with my mom would be walking around the zoo. When I would get out of kindergarten, I would run to my mom’s car, and off the the zoo we went! We’d walk around for hours, looking at animals. To this day, it is one of my favorite things to do with my mom.” Kyle Jones, Graphic Designer
“Every time I tell my mom ‘I love you’, she says ‘I love you more’. Just a sweet little thing she and her mom used to do that she’s passed on to us.” Bridget Cardillo, Digital Marketing Manager
“My favorite memory was rollerblading in the park with my mother on Sunday afternoons after we were finished with our chores.” Barbara Sisino, Franchise Business Coach
“With our busy lifestyles it’s easy to let days and sometimes weeks go by without talking. About four years ago, we started talking each morning on my commute to work. I value that time, it’s a great way to start my day, and it’s one of my favorite things to do with my mom.” Denise Morris, VP of Local Operations
“One of my best memories is when we were back in California. My mom would take me to a donut place called Welches and she would get me a chocolate milk with crushed ice. Always felt my mom’s love.” Jake Vinluan, Franchise Business Coach
“My favorite Mom memories are making our special Christmas cookies every year. To this day, it doesn’t feel like Christmas without those cookies.” Sharon Lerche, Operations Administrative Assistant
“Whenever she would get ready for a night out, I would sit and watch her put her makeup on. When she was all done and dressed we would sing together the song from West Side story, ‘I feel pretty, Oh, so pretty, I feel pretty, and witty and gay’. It became something I passed onto my girls, and now my granddaughters do the same thing.” Denise Fields, Local Operations
Nothing says, “I love you, mom” like the gift of a mosquito-free yard.
