Challenge: Best Mother

(This post is part of the Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge. You can find links to other writers' answers over at Long and Short Reviews.)

Prompt: Best mother in a book, movie, or TV show

Easy answer! (For a change...) Having thought very, very seriously about this and rigorously considered the pros and cons of all sorts of fictional figures, I have identified the perfect mother: 

Morticia Addams. 

No question. 

I feel like I shouldn't have to defend this one, but let me just make a few points to illustrate: 

1. She's the perfect hostess when you have your friends over.

2. She provides her children with proper guidance in matters of etiquette.

3. She knows how to handle children when they squabble.

4. She's always there to be supportive, no matter what her children decide to do.

No doubt about it. Morticia Addams: best mother, hands down.


  1. Morticia is a great answer! I used to watch this show on Nick at Night and loved it. :)

  2. Oh yes, Morticia is an amazing mother - The whole family is just GOALS

  3. Oh yes, excellent answer! And the gifs only make this post better. LOL

  4. Thanks for coming by... and such an excellent answer!

  5. True - Morticia was definitely the parent her kids needed.
