Happy Mother’s Day!
We here at RPW hope that all the Mom’s in the world had a very special Mother’s Day. We decided we don’t want it to end. We want to celebrate the Day After Mother’s Day by highlighting our favorite TV Mom’s. Since we all love a good list, here’s our top three favorites.
1. Daenerys Targaryen, Mother of Dragons
So Daenerys Targaryen isn’t your typical mom. Her, uhh, children aren’t what you would expect. In Season 1 of Game of Thrones, Dany was given three ancient petrified dragon eggs, each of which was supposed to worth a small fortune. Dany grew connected to her eggs and quickly developed an attachment. After the tragic loss of her husband and son, Khal Drogo and Rhaego, Dany realized there was more to the eggs than meets the eye. So, she lit a pyre to burn alive the woman who killed her family. She placed the eggs on top of the pyre and after it was ablaze, she walked into the flames. The next day, with nothing but ash and embers left smoldering around her, Dany arose wearing nothing but three baby dragons.
Boy, the Mother of Dragons is one hot mama.
2. Claire Dunphy, Mother of Haley, Alex, and Luke Dunphy
What’s not to love about Claire Dunphy? Okay, so she may be a little overbearing, obsessive compulsive, and whacky, but hey, she’s not our mom right?! But seriously, Claire is hilarious on ABC’s Modern Family and she serves as the rock and foundation of the Dunphy family. Plus, she’s definitely not as perfect or wholesome as she tries to make her kids think. Claire has issues with her family, and hasn’t held a steady job in over a decade. But, she has plenty of her own accomplishments. She gave the world Alex, Luke and Haley, she can flip a mean house, and she always knows exactly what to get from the men around her. She could definitely teach me a thing or two 😉
3. Angela Martin, Mother of Philip Schrute
Angela is the proud mom of Philip Schrute, which we found out in last week’s episode of The Office. We had been led to believe that Philip was fathered by the Senator, aka Angela’s closet-gay State Senator husband. But, it turns out that Philip was the result of an affair between Angela and Dwight. Angela has been through the ringer with Philip so far as she has been kicked out of her home and her apartment and has since relocated to Oscar’s apartment. But now Angela and Philip are headed to the altar and then Schrute Farms.
The other reason Angela made this list is because she is a dedicated mother to four-legged animals, specifically cats. Angela has had cats in her house, and her desk drawers, for nine seasons. And she has proven time and time again that she will do whatever it takes to take care of her “babies.”
