She gave you 50% of your chromosomes, 75% of your attitudes, 90% of your self-esteem, and 100% of the conversations you have with your therapist. Moms. Where would we be without them? And even though Mother’s Day this year was a little more unusual than ever, I still maintained tradition with the annual Turntable For One tribute to Mother’s Day – with songs about moms, songs from mom’s point of view, and songs about motherly advice.
