Shatiqua Pelsey, 31 with her daughter Sabriell, 6, wants candy and a heartfelt card. “It’s a day to appreciate the things I go through to be the glue of the family. I go through a lot to make sure my family has clean clothes, is fed and other things to get them ready for the day. I was taught to be independent, to take good care of my kids and to guard and protect them to the best of my ability by my mother and grandmother.

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.”
