My Superhero Mom Needs a Cape (and a Nap)

Hey everyone, it's Max, and guess what? It's almost Mother's Day! I know what you're thinking – candy, flowers, handmade cards (maybe a little lopsided, but hey, I'm working on it!). 

Mom always makes everything fun, like building the tallest Lego tower in the history of the living room (until little sis knocked it down, that is).  

She even pretends to be scared of my “roar,” even though it probably sounds more like a kitten with a hairball.

This year, though, I want to do something different for Mom.

Lately, though, Mom's smile hasn't been as sparkly as usual.  Sometimes, she seems tired after work, even before I show her my latest masterpiece (which, let me tell you, can be pretty exhausting to create!).  

It's like her superhero cape is getting a little droopy. (Shhh, Mom, don't worry—your secret identity is safe with me!)

One night, I overheard Dad talking to her about grown-up stuff like stress and being overwhelmed.  

That's when I realized something super important: even superheroes need a break sometimes.  

Just like my T-Rex runs out of battery power, superheroes need to recharge their awesomeness.

So, this Mother's Day, I'm going to help Mom get her cape back in tip-top shape. No more laundry duty for her! Instead, we're going to have a spa day in the living room. 

Face masks made from mashed berries, a movie marathon with all her favorite snacks, and maybe even a foot massage from yours truly.

But that's not all! To make it extra special, I made a secret gift: a video greeting card with a picture of me and my superhero Mom playing in the mud! I used this cool website. 

It's free and super easy to use – even for a little superhero like me!  You can add videos, pictures, and messages to make a personalized card that Mom can watch over and over again.

Most importantly, I'm going to give Mom the biggest hug ever and tell her how much I love her, even when her cape needs a little cleaning. 

Because even a tired superhero is still the strongest, bravest, and most amazing mom a kid could ask for.  

Happy Mother's Day, Mom! Love, Max, your biggest (and messiest) fan.
