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.

Because you are my ultimate Valentine.

To my beautiful best friend,

Warning: This letter is about to get extremely cheesy. I am talking four cheese lasagna cheesy. But no one deserves a love letter like this more than you do.

This Valentine’s Day, I want to express my love for you. On this wondrous occasion with which most people express their love to their significant other, I want to tell you, my best friend, how much I cherish our friendship.

You are the ultimate love of my life. Boys have come and gone but you remain a constant; for that I am grateful. You have been there for me when my family could not be; for that I am grateful. You have been my backbone, my rock, and all those other clichés people use to describe the people they care about, and yet you have been so much more than that as well; for that I am grateful.

All my love this Valentine’s Day goes out to you, my friend, because you do not receive it enough. You have picked me up out of the dirt, brushed me off, and kissed my wounds more times than I can count, and I will never be able to thank you enough for that, but I am sure am going to try.

Thank you for the midnight cries. Thank you for the midnight laughs. Thank you for ordering way too much food with me and still just eating it all. Thank you for the advice, both solicited and unsolicited. Thank you for telling me what I need to hear, even when it isn’t what I want to hear. Thank you for the silly pictures. Thank you for the stupid inside jokes. Thank you for making bad decisions with me. Thank you for laughing with me and laughing at me. Thank you for the endless memories.

You have played a part in molding who I am as a person, and I am so grateful for having such an amazing person affecting my life in such a positive way.

With all the love in my heart,

Your friend

A Goodbye Letter To My Best Friend

You'll always be my puppy.


Dear Lexie,

I grew up with you, and then I watched you grow old. For 14 years you loved our family and greeted us each morning with your puppy smile. I'll never forget those first few years of life with you.

As you and your playful soul grew, so did my love for you. I have memory upon memory of you romping around on the carpet in our living room, eagerly seeking to engage us in a playful endeavor. Your tail would wag and your tongue would flop as you ran around in circles sharing your unbridled joy with us all. I'd then find one of your many toys and send it careening through air for you to dash across the living room in a tizzy.

As you continued to grow, so did your excitement and optimism for new feats of playfulness. Even in the sweltering heat of July, you would tear across the backyard in search of lost toys and a space to play. You'd run circles non-stop and I could never keep up with you! But as soon as both of us were tired, a nice swim would cool us both down. I would sit on the pool stairs next to you, both of us drenched after a dip, and just listen to you pant away while you still held your puppy smile. You were satisfied with yet another day filled with laughter, play, and companionship.

Even in your youth, you still had your moments of love and calm. I can remember the days when we would all sit as a family watching TV and you would sit quietly at our feet. Then when the time came, you would come and rest your head on the empty seat next to me and give me those big old puppy dog eyes. You always wanted to sit on the couch, and I always eventually caved. A quick two slaps on the seat and you would enthusiastically jump on to comfortably join me.

And the one thing I'll never forget about you Lexie was your insatiable hunger! Scores of cakes and cookies left on the kitchen counter were lost to you over the years. And even after a day of looting, you'd come to us at the kitchen table to rest your head on my leg to beg for more food (and once more I couldn't resist).

As you got on in age, you began to grow a white beard which stood out on your chocolate fur. You were no longer running around as frequently as you once had, but you still had every desire to play. But the one thing that never disappeared was that beautiful puppy smile. And so as I write this goodbye to you on February 2nd of 2019, I want you to know that we all love and miss you. You were a beacon of hope for our family, and you never let your ailments dampen your wonderful spirit. I'll never forget you or the times we had. I know now that you can finally steal all the cookies and cakes you want! While today might have been sad, I will forever remember all the joy you brought to us. Here's to you Lexie, my best friend of 14 years. I hope one day I can see your puppy smile once more.
