    If you haven't heard, Mother's Day is fast approaching. And though you may still be scrambling for gift ideas, we know your love for Mom is undeniable (just speaking from experience here).

    In order to get some inspiration for any shopping or card-making that's still left to do, we took a trip down memory lane and dug up some adorably embarrassing throw-back photos, with equally cute quips and quotes to match.

This has been a struggle for the short-torsoed among us since read
