The future Mother of the Year will be my mom, Melissa Probst. My mother

truly, 100 percent needs this award. She deserves it.

There are so many reasons why my mom should be mother of the year. The ?rst one is because she is my BFF. My mom and I are like best friends. We always ask each other each other about hair, makeup, clothes, and decor. We always do stuff together. For example we play games, go shopping, practice sports, talk, draw, and we even play jokes on each other.

My mom also is always honest and tells me anything. I can ask my mom anything and she’ll tell me the truth. She treats 1ne like an adult, and adults don’t lie to each other (except on April 1st). You can ask my mom anything and get an honest answer.

My mom needs to be Mother of the Year. Pick her and you won’t regret it.

My mother, Stacey Ruholl, should be Mother of the Year because she deserves it more than anyone. If you are looking for a Mother of the Year, pick her.

The best reason my mom should be Mother of the Year is because she is the most helpful person I know. Every morning she makes my bed, makes breakfast, and does the laundry. At night she slaves away in the kitchen cooking delicious meals. When she isn’t cooking she’s helping my sisters with school work. No one is more helpful than my mom.

Another reason she should be Mother of the Year is because she is caring. On weekends she is helping the church or our family. She also volunteers for my sports. She takes care of grandparents and her parents. If anyone deserves this award it’s her.

My mom is the greatest mom in the world. Make my mom Mother of the Year.
