Sharell Cooper, 30, with her three daughters Saryah, 7, Shaniyah, 10, and Skylah, 6 wants a trip to Paris.
“Every year my family and I go out to dinner, it’s a tradition I always look forward to. What I want for Mother’s Day is lots of sleep, for my children to appreciate how much cleaning and cooking I do for them, and to understand that when I give them chores I am not being hard on them. I want them to become independent because they will have to do things on their own one day. I also dream about going to Paris, that’s a gift I would love to have.”
