Why, because mom said so. I love those words, they have such power behind them. No need for explanations, no going back and forth, no whining...just "mom said so." That was the end of any further discussion. So in honor of mothers everywhere, I thought I would share some of my favorite TV moms.
Carol Brady with that nifty little flippy shag hair cut. She was warm and fun and herded those crazy Brady kids everywhere.
Florida Evans - I adored this woman and her roles. She was a no nonsense mom with a heart of gold. I can still hear her yell "JJ" and loved when she would give James a look that would reduce him to a smoldering mass of gotta have you, baby.
Peg Bundy...she was the antichrist of mothers but she always made me laugh.Selfish and self centered she still loved her family as long as it didn't interfere with her needs.
Samantha Stevens - everything about her was class from her radiant smile right down to the nose that could twitch which solved both of her Darren's problems. She lived to give her children normalcy around her crazy and beloved relatives. I wanted to be her as teenager.
