Blue Ivy's #BeyDay Card Is Everything

Beyoncé's birthday, a.k.a. BeyDay, is a gift that keeps on giving. Of course, we loved celebrating Queen Bey's special day like it was a national holiday — which it really should be, right? Better yet, it offered an intimate glimpse into Beyoncé's life as a caring, connected (and sometimes matching) mom.

First up, Blue Ivy's contribution to the family birthday playlist made us misty-eyed. Her Little Mermaid soundtrack selection, "Part of Your World," closed out the heartfelt mixtape with the caption: "Mommy, you sung this to me all the time! Happy Birthday, Mommy!"

Later in the BeyDay evening, Beyoncé shared Blue Ivy's birthday drawing and we melted. Again.

While Beyoncé is the #1 R&B goddess and fierce female to all of us, Blue Ivy's the only person out there who can call her #1 Mom. Judging by the dotted trace marks, this wasn't a hasty work of art. Just like any not-world-famous little girl making a homemade card for her mama, the 3-year-old seemed to take her BeyDay drawing very seriously.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all my birthday wishes. 🎂🎈💙🐝

Also, not to read too much into it, but we're also guessing Blue Ivy's favorite colors are purple, orange, and green. Bold choice, Blue — like mother, like daughter already.

And considering Beyoncé's choice to showcase it as her public thank you for all the BeyDay wishes, it's clear that being the Queen might be a nice title, but #1 Mom trumps it all.
