My Kind of Mom

In preparation for Mother’s Day–I’ve been thinking about some of the movie moms that have really struck a cord with me.Ā  So, for the past few days—I’ve been making a list of some of my favorites. Now, I’m not trying to convince you to like a movie or a character–just because I do, but I’m curious to see if any of you feel the same about some of these moms. I’ve also noticed a common thread in many of these ladies, and that is, that they are positively ferocious if someone messes with their child. I guess I like that a lot. I’ve even added a couple of clips—so be sure to click on the links.

  1. I took the quiz and somehow managed to be like Helen Paar from “The Incredibles” I am totally ok with that. I like that she even shows she has frazzled days!

  2. I too am Helen Paar (Elastigirl). But then it said that 71% of participants were also her. I just wish I really was her.

    I have only seen a couple of the movies that you listed. I rarely go to the movies & when we watch DVD’s, it is usually guys flicks since I live in a household of guys.

  3. Tied for Helen Parr and J.C. Wiatt. Only 17% of users are like me… so probably all the single ladies taking the quiz šŸ™‚

  4. I got J C Wiatt too! I’m not single though… sooo it must just be us! šŸ˜‰

    This is a fun list of movies Mom! šŸ™‚ Time is going sooo fast! I hope that you have a great Mother’s Day! Let’s plan your favorite yummy-ness to eat, and what fun prizes you want! šŸ˜‰ OHhhh… and you get to talk to Dane soon! šŸ™‚ YAHOO!!!

  6. I love Maria Vontrap from the Sound of Music. She mothers those children long before she is their mother. I just love how she listens to them and allows them to be children.
