Mother’s Day Top Ten

Posted May 16, 2017 by Grace @ Rebel Mommy Book Blog in Top Ten Tuesday / 72 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Broke and Bookish.
This week is a Mother’s Day Theme. I went with favorite and least favorite on-screen moms.

The Best

Lorelai Gilmore // I have such love for the show Gilmore Girls and a lot has to do with Lorelai. She was a good mom as well as a good friend to her daughter. She was weird, wacky and talked too fast and drank too much coffee. She was my kind of gal.

Tami Taylor // No nonsense lady who had the biggest heart and always the best intentions. Friday Night Lights was Tami and Eric Taylor. She was a great wife and an even better mom.

Kristina Braverman // Parenthood. There were a lot of moms on that show but Kristina stands out. While she could get on my nerves a bit, her dedication to her children and what they needed always made me love her.

Sophia Petrillo // Well she wasn’t the lovey dovey type but man was she funny!! I loved watching her and Dorothy go at it on Golden Girls. You could see they loved each other though.

Beverly Goldberg // Ha she is a hoot on the Goldbergs. I just love her. She is over the top and often gets it wrong but her heart is always in the right place.

Molly Weasley // I think I covered this recently but she was awesome through the whole series and movies but that last one, she was amazing.

Sheldon’s Mom // She is so cute and I know she is a bad stereotype at times but I love how she deals with Sheldon on the Big Bang Theory.

The Worst

Gemma Teller Morrow // I am not sure you could get any worse than Gemma on Sons of Anarachy. If you have seen the show you know what I mean.

Betty Draper // I mean sure I drink wine with the kids around. And sure it was a different time. Still, the way she disciplines her kids and talks about them are just awful.

Leonard’s Mom //  She is so cold and awful. But I love Christine Baranski so I appreciate how she plays the character. Still awful.

BONUS Favorite Bookish Moms from Recent Reads

The Upside of Unrequited // Under Rose Tainted Skies // Harry Potter

What are your favorite on-screen or bookish moms? Least favorite?

  1. Though Lorelei annoyed me so many times, she was a great mom! I love Sheldon’s mom! I mean it takes a lot of strength to raise a kid like Sheldon! And oh man, Kristina. I think she’s my favorite mom ever. She had to go a shit ton throughout that series.
    Hahaha! Leonard’s mom is terrible, but I also love her for her coldness!

  2. Awesome list! I agree with you (at least on all those shows I watch). I love calling my daughter shmoopy, especially when we’re out in public. She gets so squirmy, lmao.

    And yes, Gemma is a good example of a bad mom! It’s funny because I remember times in the beginning when I didn’t think she was so bad, but she got progressively worse! (Or, it was more that the depths of her awfulness was slowly revealed!)

  3. 60s kid here. Betty was pretty typical of suburbia in that day. Remember, “parenting” wasn’t yet a verb and when practiced it amounted to the phrase “Go Play.” Sophia is an awesome choice! I must say I could come up with TV/Film moms easier than books. Helen in Raising Helen and, of course her sister with the “Mom Haircut,” too.

    I’ve seen most of these shows and agree with you on all of them! Betty Draper is the WORST. And I absolutely adore Lorelai, Kristina, and Molly Weasley – you’ve got a great list of faves, and they are my top three for sure. Great list!!
