Happy Mother's Day, Mom ... errrr, "Mom"

As anyone raised in between the ’70s and the ’90s knows, good parenting comes in many forms. Sometimes all it needs is scripted dialogue and a well-timed laugh track.

As Mother’s Day approaches, it’s a good time not only to remember to send a card or call your real mom, but also to spend 1 minute and 52 seconds remembering the women who mommed alongside her.


Carol Brady, Lorelia Gilmore and Dixie Carter are missing. But other than that: solid tribute.

It’s also a reminder that one problem with enforcing screen-time limits on my kids is that they’re not forming solid, trusting relationships with TV moms. Would I be the woman I am today if it weren’t for, say, Mrs. Huxtable?
