Jake actually drew a picture of a mitochondrion on the front of my Mother's Day card. A direct quote from the card: "I think it's fitting that we get the thing that is our sole source of energy from our mothers. Mothers are the foundation of movement and progress of our race."
I love geeks.
But, really, it is pretty amazing. To my own sweet and beautiful mom: Thanks for the mRNA, the warm cookies after school, and the endless words of encouragement and praise. I love you.
