The Chosen One

Does anyone know that out of all the Moms in the world, mine's the best? My Mom, Stacey Hoene, should be Mother of the Year because she is like no other!

There are millions of reasons why my Mom should be Mother of the Year, but I will just name three. My Mom is super unique. If my siblings and I get all of our chores done, we get to pick out of a prize box! Not many Moms do that with their kids. She is also a helpful person because every time I see her she's helping me, my siblings or my family members. Does your mom help that much? My Mom is just so... nice because she loves me, and I love her. We get along so well, but most of all she's tells me I am her favorite along with my brother and sister as well. Do you get told that?

All these amazing reasons surely explain to everyone that my Mom is the best Mom in the world. Judges, please award my Mom for Mother of the Year. There's no Mom better than mine!

The Giver

Did you know, Judy Huelsing, that of all the mothers out of the whole world, mine is the best. My Mom should receive the Mother of the Year because she is very loving,and she helps my family out a lot.

First of all, my mother is very helpful. When someone is sick, she cooks for them. If my neighbor is sick, my Mom cooks for them. If my aunts or uncles are sick she will cook for them. My Mom is always assisting people. Also, my Mom is always a giver to my sisters and I on homework. She is a support to my grandpa and grandma by taking them places. My Mom volunteers a lot with things. She volunteers a lot for chaperoning on field trips. She also volunteers for taking things to people's houses too.

In the end, my Mom is helpful when others are sick, she is always assisting people, and she is so unselfish in helping out my grandma and grandpa. My mom is a special Mother of the Year because of how she always gives and helps out others.
