FrontPoint Picks: Happy Mother’s Day!

Posted by , , at 6:15 am

The story I’m told is that I was a handful when I was a young kid. Sure, I was usually calm and quiet, but I was also overly curious. And that got me in trouble.

Prickly little bugs? Let me hug you (I am now deathly afraid of bugs). Potted plants? I shall free you and create a new jungle in the middle of the floor. Crayons? Yum.

Luckily for me, my mother had the magical ability that only mothers have: to know when her child was being reckless. I never really made it far with my dastardly plans. And my mother did an especially superb job in making sure I stayed out of harm’s way.

Thanks mom.

And thank you to all mothers out there. You have a tough job – you’ve earned a little break. It’s all about the moms today on FrontPoint Picks. Happy Mother’s Day!
