10-year-old boy leaves mom the sweetest note EVER (PHOTO)

Sometimes, all parents need is a little sign of appreciation. In the cutest news I've heard all week, a 10-year-old boy decided to give his mom just that by leaving her the incredibly adorable present and note seen here.


After noticing all of his mother's efforts, the boy paid her back by leaving a glass of what looks like a fruit smoothie in  his kitchen, with a short letter tucked underneath. "Dear Mom," he wrote. "This is for you, I understand how hard you work, and I know you love strawberry milk, so I made this for you. :)" AWWW! Doesn't that make your heart melt?!

Word of his super sweet gift quickly spread over the Internet after his sibling posted a picture of it on Redditt, with the caption, "My 10 year old brother left this in the fridge for my mom to come home to after work...he's a sweetheart." And though some naysayers were quick to question the legitimacy of the note, citing the near-perfect, penmanship, most (including myself!) were filled with praise of the lovely and considerate gesture.

that is so sweet, my daughter just did something very similar for me last night! Little token of appreciation like these are priceless for a mom. It's not that we are expecting recognition, but a little pampering from your little ones means a lot!

That was soo sweet!  My kids usually save all that sweet stuff for Mother's Day.  I try to teach them to appreciate me whenever possible.  It is the least I could do.
