happy birthday mum. this song always makes me think of you. its such a beautiful tribute to all mothers, especially ones who pass on their love of singing and dancing as you undoubtedly have to me.
so mama, for all the lullabys, for all the sing-alongs, for all the pushing back of the kitchen table so we could really swing and twist and shout...and for all the other things too, thank you. have a happy day.i love you with all my heart oxoxox
ps i told my second graders it was my mums birthday and they all burst into a chorus of *happy birthday ellis mum*...it made me a bit teary it did.
