“Thank you for being a stay at home mom and homeschooling all of us. Thank you for being the last one to go to sleep and the first one to awake.”

We’re going to need a second here, folks.

It’s always great to see young professional athletes take care of those who helped them reach the pinnacle in their respective sport. Porter Jr. doing this for his mom is no different. Good for him.
