"Mom was right when she said ... "
We'll publish our favorite responses in the paper in honor of Mother's Day.
Send your answer along with your name, age, daytime phone number and address to: Mother's Day, Island Life, The Honolulu Advertiser, 605 Kapi'olani Blvd., Honolulu, HI 96813; or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Mother's Day" in the subject line. Submissions may be edited.
We also welcome photos of you with your mom — original prints or high-resolution images — which may appear in print or online. Original prints will not be returned. Deadline is April 26.
