Teutopolis, Fourth grade, Mrs. Scott

TEUTOPOLIS — Number One Mom

For a fact, the most amazing mom is Stacey Dasenbrock. She is the best mom in the whole entire universe. If you don't think she is, I will prove it.

There are lots of reasons why my Mom is the best. One reason is she bought nineteen lllini tickets for me and some of my friends. When we went, it even was a school night. The tickets were each thirty dollars. Another reason why my Mom is so special is she gave me one hundred dollars to buy an Ipad. I already had two hundred dollars. She knew how much I wanted it and was nice enough to give me one hundred more. My ?nal reason why my Mom is so special is that she lets me play on three different challenging baseball leagues. They are Teutopolis Park District, Effingham Park District, and Teutopolis traveling team. Most kids do not get to play three different challenging leagues. This is why my Mom is so special.

There are millions of reasons why moms are the best, but if you read my three reasons you will know why Stacey Dasenbrock is the best. My mom is the best Mom ever, and that is why she should be selected for Mother of the Year.
