For moms, caring for their children is the biggest, most important job in the world. And many of us learned what we know from our own moms. In honor of Mother's Day, I asked allParenting writers to share photos of themselves with their moms, along with their favorite memories. We are moms ourselves now, but we still love our mommies!

unconditional love
I love this picture of me, my mom and older sister. It's so true what they say about appreciating your mother 100 times more when you're a mother yourself. My children are about the same ages as my sister and me in that photo, so I can really relate to that beautiful woman with two (of her five!) girls.

She epitomizes what true, unconditional love is. Happy Mother's Day, Mom!
