16 Reasons Why You Need to Call Your Mom RIGHT NOW

From living with our middle school phase to the countless times she picked us up from school, we love you, Mom.

When my middle school boyfriend—a.ka. "the love of my life"— broke up with me outside of gym class, I called my mom frantically in tears. She picked me up early and we drove around back country roads, singing Shania Twain's "That Don't Impress Me Much" and eating ice cream sundaes.

So when I read Thought Catalog's sentimental list of 16 Things We Thank Our Moms For, I was reminded yet again that I don't thank my mom enough for all she does. Clearly this sentimental list was created to tug at the heart strings of mama's boys and girls (like myself), but what's wrong with that? Nothing. Now go call your mom.
