Dadaviz's Ian T. Sommers compiled data from a year's worth of texts with his mom in a very compulsively sweet gesture.

The greatest gift a mother can receive: statistical analysis.

Ian T. Sommers of Dadaviz is a loving son. He also knows where his talents lie: number-crunching and infographic design. That's why he decided to put his skills to work and show his mom how much he cares at the same time. He compiled all the texts they shared over a full year and analyzed trends in the data. Then he put that information into these enlightening graphs. It's the kind of gesture that would make any mother blush and then worry.

You can learn a lot about their relationship from these images. More than Sommers may have planned on, actually.

As this first graph shows, they text more often the further he moves from home. Awww…

It's like a bell curve of loneliness.

They usually only say "love" when it's somebody's birthday.

Her birthday is in the same month as Mother's Day. Nice move, mom.

He says "sorry" a whole lot. There's definitely more to the story there, but we don't need to know about it.

"Sorry this graph proves I have a guilt complex."

Lastly, he made these clouds of their most-used words. Her #1 is "call," which makes it seem kind of mean that he made her keep texting all this time. But if he hadn't, we wouldn't have these great charts.

She just wants to hear your voice, man.

His most-used words are all simple confirmations. He really texts like a son.

It's just a relief "K" isn't in there.

It's weird to look at a mother-son relationship laid out in numbers like this. You have to give Ian Sommers credit for laying it all on the line like this. And you have to give it up for his mom for agreeing. That's assuming she agreed. Unless he didn't ask her, in which case we'd love to see the next text conversation they have.
