Mother's Day Weekend is just a few days away and of course, it is a time to celebrate and reflect on all things "Mom". Let's be honest, being a mom is the hardest job on the planet and while we celebrate Mother's Day, we might want to consider making that Mother's Week. (Yes, I realize I'm kissing up)


I mean, most moms do it all, right? That certainly was the case for me growing up.  My Mom was involved in every aspect of my life, even if I didn't want her to be.

As we get ready to celebrate Mothers Day, I thought it would be fun to ask you what your mom was or is the best at.  My Mom was an incredible baker of pies.  In fact, I would dare say that I've never had a coconut cream pie that compares to my Moms. So, I posted the following question on social media:

My Mom makes/made the best (fill in the blank here).

I really enjoyed reading all of the answers to not only find out what people's mothers were or are the best at, but I enjoyed seeing the love that folks have for their moms. Those moments in time become such a part of us and when our parents are gone, they are like a warm hug when we look back and think about them.


So let's take a look at some of the answers we received to our question "My Mom makes/made the best (fill in the blank here):

    • "My Mom made the best Lemon Meringue Pie, it was my Dad's favorite" - Patti
    • "Decorated cakes…she taught all four of us girls how to do it too!" - Susan
    • "Kids! So darn thankful for 14 siblings" - Mary Anne
    • "Mashed potatoes, spaghetti, shepherd's pie, sweet tea, hobo dinners, and gives great hugs" - Taylor
    • "Scratch Blueberry Muffins" - Andrew
    • "Rhubarb pie" - Bonnie
    • "Fried chicken and hot rolls" - Patricia
    • "Homemade Ceaser dressing! One mother's day my dad made it and he added an entire toe of garlic, instead of a glove. We told him never again was he allowed to make dressing lol" - Jessica
    • "Pumpkin bars and fruit salad" - Alicia
    • "Apple pie. Fried chicken which she learned from her mom...Mmmmm" - Dawn
    • "My mom could plan for a family of five but ended up feeding nine. No microwave!" - Melan
    • "Life for her kids in spite of many hardships!" - Loretta

I just love all of these so much. As I mentioned above, you can feel the love when you read these and I think it's safe to say that Montana is certainly blessed with some incredible mothers. So, to all of you wonderful moms out there, Happy Early Mother's Day.
