My mom, Susie Feldhake, should be Mother or the Year. My mom deserves this award.

Here are the best reasons why I love my mom. I love her because she is honest to me. When I ask her something she tells me the real truth. For an example when I ask her what we are doing this weekend, she tells me the truth.

There is another reason why I love my mom. I love her a lot because she is so kind to me. Susie is kind because she helps me on my homework. For example, on reading homework she helps me on the summary part. She takes me to a lot of places. For example, she takes me out to eat, and to get clothes and shoes.

If you want a Mother of the Year that is honest and kind then you need my mom.

My mother is Kelly Haller. She is a very hardworking mom. She deserves to be Mother of the Year.

First of all, my mom is very hardworking. She works and has to take care of three kids. She also cooks, cleans, and she takes my two sisters to their rodeos. She takes me to out eat after school too.

Second of all, she is very helpful. She helps me with my homework and helps me study. She also helps me practice for baseball, basketball, and soccer. Even though she doesn’t really like those things she does them anyway.

If you are looking for a hardworking mom, then you should pick my mom to be Mother of the Year.

My mom, Maria Kingery, should be Mother of the Year because she is helpful and caring. She does nice things for me and always helps me.

Most importantly, my mom is caring. Every day she cooks fantastic meals and desserts. Whenever something sad happens, she comforts me and makes me feel better. She always makes me laugh and gives me courage to do my best. On holidays she does creative things and gives me exciting presents. Last but not least, she takes good care of me and my brother and sisters.

My mom is also helpful. Every night my mom helps me study for tests and do my homework. Sometimes I have big chores to do and she helps me. Whenever I am sick my mom brings me medicine to make me feel better. Many times I have hard tests coming up, so she always helps me have courage.

There are many reasons why my mom should be Mother of the Year. She is an amazing mom. Choose my mom to be Mother of the Year!
