Happy Mother’s Day: My Favorite TV Moms

 

Sunday is Mother’s day!  So while we all scramble to get flowers, book reservations at restaurants and plan whatever grand gesture to show our Mommas that we really really really love them- I wanted to take the time to salute my  our TV moms in honors of Mother’s Day. As the saying goes, “it takes a village,” and these Mamas are definitely in mine. Each of their personalities reminds me of different layers of my own mother’s personality.

Now some of these mama’s are overbearing, others are the super hard working single mom, a few are the “cool” moms, overall these moms filled our minds and hearts with laughter and love. Check out my top 8 TV moms that I would wish Happy Mother’s Day- they’re in no particular order. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, mommies, mamas, aunts and grandmas out there. We salute you.

Also, I would like to send an EXTRA special shout to Toya From Harlem’s Mom , my mommy (pictured above). Thank you for doing the best that you could do raising me. I love you.

Happy Mother’s Day: My Favorite TV Moms

1. Ms. Parker mother from The Parkers 

This is one of my favorites because she was a single mom-like my mother. She is one of the only single mom’s I can think of that was on Television. When she wasn’t chasing Mr. Professor,  Ms. Parker was an actual College student- trying to get her degree later on in life after being a teenage Mother.
