Every mom is different, but they all have the same purpose. They care for kids even if they are not their kid. Moms work day and night for their kid and it is not fun for them, but they do it for us and some kids don’t notice that they do it for us.
You might think they are over protective when they say, “look both ways before you cross the road” or “don’t touch that, it’s hot,” but that is them just protecting you though their love.
What I have learned over the years of being a kid is that you will never love someone more than your mom loves you, even if you think differently.
Moms are always doing stuff for us and there’s not much things we can do to repay for it, but you can clean your room, do the laundry, and if you know how to cook, just make them a meal and especially get them SOMETHING on Mother’s Day. At least a card or something that you make yourself because they love that stuff.
On Mother’s Day, you need to spend lots of time with them and go out to eat, so whatever you want, just make sure you spend time with them because that is the best gift you can give them.
Every mom is important to this world because some save lives and some spread something that is important. No matter what they do, it is always important to someone. ALL MOMS ARE AWESOME!

My mom is the best. She has always protected me from dangerous stuff, outlets, bullies, knives and other dangerous things. She was always getting nice stuff for me — Xbox, WillU and 3ds. (No, I’m NOT a rich kid!)
My mom is a great cook. Her cheesy potato soup is the best. Also, she makes really good roast beef.
She has a great sense of humor. (She even laughs at crummy jokes.)
Her favorite team is UK (which is the best team ever, and you are wrong if you say otherwise). My mom always listens to KSR (which is basically ESPN but with UK only football and basketball).
My mom has been to so many cool places — Jamaica, Florida, Indiana, Washington D.C.
I think that my mom is the greatest mom EVER.
