My Helpful Mom

Carrie Repking is unselfish and helpful. My mom is the best mom in the whole world. My sisters and I have learned much about helping others because of our mom.

Second, my mom takes us fishing. She hooks the bait. She unhooks the fish. She gets water out of the pond. She helps our neighbors by watching their baby and cleans their house. Mom helps me with homework. Mom is smart and helps me with all subjects and tries her best to help me.

Mom takes us ?shing, helps our neighbors, and helps me with homework. Definitely choose my mom as Mother of the Year.

The Best Mom in the World

Do you know who the best mom is? My mom! Ann Swingler, mom, will always be the best mom. My mom is kind, helpful, fun, and happy to have four girls.

First of all, Ann helps out all the time at ASRP (after school religion program). Mom is in charge of ASRP if any of the prizes are left we can have them. Next, Ann pays me an allowance if I clean my room. When I clean my room she pays me $1.00 so every Saturday I earn $1.00. She does that because our messy room is never clean. Last, Ann buys me good books when I want them. When we get book orders, she always buys me one or two. On my birthday I got $35 to buy books. I would have spent all my money, but she said she would pay for some of it. My mom is the best.

Ann Swingler helps out in ASRP, she pays me for chores, and she buys me books. Ann loves me and that is why she pays me money and buys me books. She loves God, and that is why she helps out in ASRP. My mom should win Mother of the Year. She is the best mom anyone could wish for.
