There are lots of things that mothers do well. Fix boo-boos, cut crusts off sandwiches, point out failures and shortcomings. But if there is one thing that they do best, it’s let us know they love us.

The folks behind Postcards from Yo Momma get the joke so much that they created a website dedicated to maternal correspondence.
