From conception to college selection, today's mothers feel unending pressure to do everything to give their children an advantage. As a result, kids spend their lives running from one brain-enriching activity to the next. Whatever happened to being a child? In a funny, clever and whimsical way, photographer and author Link Nicoll raises this question. In an imaginary letter to Mom, young babies and toddlers celebrate mothers for their hard work and good intentions but express the desire to "take a break" from the fast track and enjoy the simple, timeless pleasures of childhood.
