Power Ranking The 11 Best Fictional Moms

Power Ranking The 11 Best Fictional Moms

Just because they aren't real doesn't mean they aren't amazing mothers.

Moms: there are a lot of things we can say about them. They're sweet, caring, strong, and solmetimes annoying, but we love them anyway. Whether it's your actual mom, stepmom, grandmother, best friend's mother, or just someone who is like a mother to you, they have certain qualities that make them special and fictional moms are the same way. These fictional moms are just as good as any real mom and are definitely role models.

Here is a breakdown of the best fictional mothers:

1. Kate McCallister from "Home Alone"

Kate McCallister is a prime example that not all mothers are perfect, but we love them anyway. Despite forgetting about her son on multiple occasions, she will do anything and everything to get back to him to make sure he’s safe.

2. Kate Baker from "Cheaper by the Dozen"

As if taking care of one child isn't enough, Kate Baker was in charge of 12 of them on top of being a successful author. Kate is basically the definition of a superhuman without actual super powers and shows us that moms are tough enough to handle anything.

3. Morticia Addams from "The Addams Family"

Once you get past the bizarre behaviors of the Addams family, Morticia Addams wants nothing more for her family to be happy. She always supports her children’s desires and she is super supportive of her husband. Morticia and Gomez are literally #couplegoals.

4. Lily Potter from "Harry Potter"

Lily Potter sacrificed her life in order to save her son’s: a true act of love. This love goes on to save Harry in the future, which makes it even more powerful. Lily had mother-like qualities even as a young adult, whether she was helping a friend in need or standing up for those who couldn’t stand up for themselves.

5. Queen Clarisse Renaldi from "The Princess Diaries"

This fictional grandma proves that getting old doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. Queen Clarisse teaches her granddaughter how to be a princess, as well some life lessons along the way. Not to mention she helped her with that sleepover with the mattress slide; that’s a cool grandma.

6. Leigh Anne Tuohy from "The Blind Side"

No one fights harder for what she wants than Leigh Anne Tuohy and, better yet, no one fights harder for what is right. When it came down to giving Big Mike a place to stay and an equal chance at life, she made sure that he got what he needed. Even though he wasn’t her own son, she treated him like a part of the family. Leigh Anne embraces the sassiness that lies in every mom.

7. Clair Huxtable from "The Cosby Show"

Clair Huxtable is proof that a woman can have a full-time job and still be a successful mother. She’s a lawyer and her husband is a doctor but when it comes to home life, Clair is on the ball and always there for her kids and her husband.

8. Molly Weasley from "Harry Potter"

This powerhouse, sweater-knitting mom may seem like she’s all over the place but, in reality, what mom isn’t? As the mother of six boys and one girl, it’s hard to recognize each child for his or her achievements but that doesn’t mean she loves them any less than the other and she will always defend her babies. Molly Weasley indefinitely won us all over with her famous quote from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”: “NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!”

9. Kala from "Tarzan"

Kala’s mother instincts kicked in once she realized that Tarzan’s parents were dead. Having lost her own baby to the same killer, Kala took Tarzan as her own, despite Kerchak telling her not to. Kala also taught us that we don’t need to look the same to be a family.

10. Sophia Petrillo from "The Golden Girls"

Doing anything to stay out of the nursing home, Sophia Petrillo lives with her daughter and her two friends providing witty comments, life advice, and a few good laughs. Sophia was definitely the OG "cool mom".

11. Maria from "The Sound of Music"

This woman went from nun-in-training, to governess, to wife and mother in literally no time at all. Maria taught the von Trapp family how to be happy again and became the mother that they all needed.

Cherish The Moments You Get To Spend With Your Parents And Never Take Them For Granted

I am so grateful for both of you and don't know what I'd do without you.


Everything I am, everything I have I owe to my parents. They are the most amazing people I know. And yes, I know, everyone says that about their own parents, but my parents are truly unlike any others. They really are the best.

You see, my parents are not just the coolest and goofiest people around, but they are also the kindest and selfless. Every second I get to spend with them is one that I cherish.

I am eternally grateful for each and everything they've done for me. Even when things were a struggle, they never failed to provide for my sister and I. Through every hardship, through every tragedy we encountered, they were our leaders, our rocks. Their strength and perseverance are what motivates me. From watching them go through life, seeing how they treat others, how they value hard work and kindness, they've taught me more than they could possibly know.

Some of my absolute favorite memories I have are my parents, sister and I just hanging out, laughing about how goofy and weird we all are, not having a care in the world, us just living in the moment and genuinely enjoying each other's company. It's those small moments I will cherish forever.

As I'm getting older, it's becoming more and more clear that they are too. And that scares me. It's impossible to image a day when I can't call them when they won't be there to lift me up when I'm feeling down, or make me laugh until I cry. Which is why I take advantage of each and every moment I have with them.

It's sometimes sad when I see friends who don't want to spend that time with their family, because at the end of the day, that time, those opportunities to make those special memories with them is fleeting. They won't be there forever. And that is not something you'll want to look back and wish you had done.

I am perfectly content with spending time at home when I visit from college, for going on a family trip whenever I get the chance because my family is everything to me.

I love sitting on the couch having a movie night with my parents. I love going to Disney and just laughing about how much fun we have. I love those road trips where we all sing completely off-tune because none of us can actually sing. Those are the moments that matter.

And I know I might not always be the greatest to be around. I get grumpy and sometimes am not a complete ray of sunshine. But just know that even when I suck sometimes, I always appreciate you.

Thank you both for everything you've done for me, for all the sacrifices, for the laughs, the endless memories, for truly making my life wonderful. I am so grateful for both of you and don't know what I'd do without you.

Love you to the moon and back mom and dad.
