“She listened to it on Tuesday morning before she wanted to go shopping. She gave me a call at about 1 p.m. and told me that she hasn’t been able to go shopping yet because she was crying the whole morning, being so touched. So it was a total success. Thanks again for having created such a wonderful possibility…”
– Katrin F.
“We have had so much fun doing this! I can’t wait until my mom hears the CD – I know that she will be thrilled.”

Ideas for young children
– Get them talking about their mom (or any topic) – the possibilities are endless because anything her kids say is precious to her!
– You can help the kids call in a series of messages by having them answer a different question on each call. Or you can record a longer conversation with them. You’ll have fun hearing their adorable responses!
– Questions to ask: What do you love about your mom? What are your favorite memories of her? What are your favorite things about her? What is she really good at? What has your mom taught you? What has she given you? Do you have any advice for her?
– Ask them to tell her a story or joke. Have them sing her a song or read her something.
Ideas for older children
– What are some of your favorite memories of your mom? Take your time and describe each memory. Let her know why it’s a good memory and why it stands out in your mind.
– What do you love about your mom? What are your favorite things about her? What do you appreciate about your mom? Why is she a great mom?
– What has she taught you? How has she impacted your life?
– Say something to make your mom laugh – a joke, funny story, impersonation, song – whatever strikes you!
Ideas for spouses
– What are some of your favorite memories of your wife with your children?
– Tell her what you love and appreciate about her. What does she do for your kids that you appreciate? What makes her a great mom? What are some of your favorite things about her? Why are you glad that she’s in your life?
– Make her laugh with a joke or funny story.
– Your message can be simple – she’ll appreciate anything you say because it shows her you care. No matter what you say, you’ll make her feel loved. Just have fun with your message!
