We asked readers to tell us what they love about their moms. Kids from 17 to well over 70 entered The Herald’s Mother’s Day contest. The winner received a $100 gift card to Renee’s Contemporary Clothing in Everett. But there were many other heartfelt stories. You can find all of them here.
Daughters: Hayley Newman and Lindsay Newman, Whidbey Island
Mom: Pam Newman, Whidbey Island
This was hard for us to write, not because we couldn’t think of anything to say, but because we had too many things come to mind when thinking about what makes our mom special.
Besides being the best mom of seven kids, she attends every one of our sporting events, always says yes to a DQ Georgia Mud Fudge Blizzard and even suffered through a Britney Spears concert with us in Vegas (which we know she secretly enjoyed). We love her so much and could never repay her.
But — surprise, Mom! — we’re taking you to the Brad Paisley concert in June!
