28 x May 4 - 17, 2017 x CONTINUED FROM PAGE 27 My mom’s name is Diana, and my mom is the best mom in the world, because she does everything and anything for me. When I am sick, she stays with me and takes care of me, even when she gets sick herself. My mom will let me have the last hot dog, even when I know she is hungry and has not eaten. She roots for me and is my biggest cheerleader, even when I do not run so fast. When I have nightmares, she stays up to keep the monsters away, even if she is tired. She is at every play and makes the best cookies in my class. She goes with me on my school trips and rides all the scary rides with me, even though she turns green on them. When I am sad, she makes me laugh with a fart joke. She is funny, courageous, sweet and kind. She is a great chef and cooks for us every day. She can make the ickiest stuff taste great! She has taught us to care and be respectful of others. She loves me and my brother and sister the same, even though I am her best child. When I grow up, I want to be just like her. I can count on my mom always being there for me, and that makes her the very best mom in the world. Matthew Conde, 10 Dr. Phillips My mom is hardworking. No other person works as hard as my mom. She works every day. Most days I don’t even get to talk to her. Other days, when she is home, we have fun together. My mom is fun, because she takes me and my family to many different places all the time. She also does fun things with me and my friends. She sometimes brings us to Disney and Universal. Equally important, my mom is positive. My mom is positive, because one time, we were at the beach, and it started getting windy. Sand blew into my eyes, and she was positive

it would stop. Another time, there was a tornado warning. My brother, friend and I were scared, but my mom said to calm down. Instead of being scared, she was positive it would not hit. My mom is the best in many ways. Rylan Ardnt, 8 Windermere Chase I do not need to convince anyone that my mom is the best mom. I know that out of every single mom there is, my mom is the best. She does not have superpowers, but what she has done for my sisters and me takes just as much strength an any superhero. My mom raised us for many years as a single mom. She left the house early in the morning and came home late in the afternoon, but somehow found time to cook dinner and spend time with us. She made sure our childhood was carefree and full of many adventures. After the birth of my little brother, who has Down syndrome, I have never doubted that my mom is the best in the world. Down syndrome slows a number of stages in development and can have other health effects. My mom has shown patience for every delay my brother has. She shows the same amount of love to each one of us. Even though she is busy raising four kids, she advocates for children in foreign countries who have no families and no one to turn to. My mother inspires me to be kind and care for every person regardless of any labels. Rebekah Asquino, 15 Ocoee My mom is the best, because she is loving. She helps me when I am sad, and she helps me to feel happy. When I am hurt, she makes me feel better. She loves each and every one. My mom has a big heart. My mom is fun, because she goes to the skate park with me. She is fun, because she goes to fun places with our family. We love Disney, skate parks, water parks and Scooterville, Georgia. One thing is true about my mom and that is that she does her best to make life fun for all of us. My mom is positive. She is positive, because when our money was down, she made everything better. My mom is the best, because when I am in the hospital, she makes me feel better. For example, I was skateboarding at my school. I hit a crack in the sidewalk and fell down. I broke my wrist. My mom thought it did not break, but my dad took me to the hospital anyway. To be honest, I was happy, because I did not think I would have to go to school. I was wrong, and my parents sent me. In conclusion, my mom is the best. She is loving, fun and positive! Colin Harden, 9 Windermere My mom is the best mom in the Southwest community, because we have family time. When we have family time, she plays games with me, and we watch TV. She gives me kisses and hugs. She reads books to me. I like how she is. She works hard for me. My mom loves me. Chloe Perdigao, 7 MetroWest She is the best mom in the world, because she’s my mom, and she is hardworking, caring, brave and accepts me as I am. She is my idol and role model. I love her so much, and I don’t know what I would do without her. She cheers me up when I’m sad or when I have a bad day. Sure, we have our fights and discussions, but in the end, we still love each other. She is too amazing for 250 words. My mom is, for sure, caring and loving. When I get sick and I’m down, my mom cheers me up. She feeds me, my dad and sister every day. She helps me with everything and tells me she loves me every day. She always listens when I tell her how my day went. She accepts me as I am and is brave, because she lets me do what I truly love. She loves it when I try new things. She lets me try out for anything CONTINUED ON PAGE 30 x May 4 - 17, 2017 x 29 Dine at our luxurious resort at Hemingway’s Restaurant for our Mother’s Day Brunch.
