Realistic or Not - 11 Movie Moms I Wish To Be More Like

I take a lot of inspiration from many different places. When I think about the type of parent and mom I hope my kids think back to me being, I first think to my own mom. Growing up she was always there for me, even now I can call her and always count on her for advice. She has shown me that no matter how ‘silly’ my dreams may be — to always go for them. She is the number 1 member of my cheering squad and she has and still is an incredible source of inspiration for me.

I am also a hard-core movie lover and enjoy all types of movies, stories and characters. In movies, we come across many different types of parenting and different ideas of what a ‘good’ mom is. Sometimes it’s the quiet mom who lets her child make their own mistakes and sometimes the qualities that we may not think about when we think ‘mom’ is what makes them such kick butt moms.

Click to view 11 movie moms who have amazing qualities I think we should all strive for, to one degree or another:


  • Beatrix Kiddo; Kill Bill 1 of 11
