St. Anthony, Third grade, Mrs. Bushur

EFFINGHAM — Who can tuck you in the best? My Mom that's who. She is the best Mom in the whole wide world. My Mom is the most helpful to get us better and she is so lovely. She also is so gracious. My Mom should be mom of the year because she does a lot for me. She helps me with my homework and cheers me up when I am sad. My Mom does laundry and cooks for me and gets my needs to help me live. When I call her she comes. My Mom helps me with puzzles and plays games with me. Coming to all of my sports games is important to her. My mom works a lot to pay for our stuff so I barely get to see her. In my bed, she lays with me. My mom also helps me go to bed when I can't go to bed. I go shopping with her and we have the best time. When I am scared she tells me don't be afraid. When we have animals that make nest at our house she tells us not to go near them. My mom helps me swim. She wakes me up in the morning. I admire her because she is so nice, fair, and helps a lot. I walk with her and we talk together. It is so fun. I could go on forever and forever bragging about my Mom. She deserves to be "Mother of the Year" because she loves me.

Who can clean a room faster than you can say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious three times fast? Who know where everything in the house is? Who is the nicest mom in the whole wide world? My Marvelous Mom!! Puzzles is fun to do with her. Games is something she does with the whole family. Mmm, calzones is a wonderful dish this chef cooks. My mom lays with me in bed. When I am sick, she takes care of me. My mom makes me laugh so much I cry! She puts others before herself. My mom makes crafts with me. Fun places like the bowling alley and the movie theater are places we enjoy to go to with the family. Homework is something she helps me with when I do not understand it. Reading is something we like to do at night when we are tired. She is the best mom in the whole universe and beyond! I love her with all my heart. All of that is why my Mom should win Mother of the Year.
