The New York Times Well Blog recently ran a six-word "Momoir" contest, in which readers submitted their best six-word memoir to describe their mother or motherhood. Many are funny, others sad, but most are spot-on accurate. It got me thinking about what my own "momoir" would be... for myself and for my own mom.

For my mom: I couldn't do it without you.
For Will: You're the light of my life.

If you had to sum it up, what would your six-word "momoir" be?


  1. For Milo: The truth? You are raising me.

  2. Maggie, that's just perfection!


Thanks for reading!
