Mother's Day

White cotton socks
Stained from sandbox days
Your name printed in permanent marker across the toes
Will never fade as we sent
you to daycare and the
Indelible memories
Dropping you off
Working through the regret
When we picked you up
You were potty-trained and knew the days of the week
In the evenings, prepping to send 
an extra pair of clean socks each day
We held you and each other
