Let me state something here. If I’m being honest as I was planning (mentally) content, I will admit, I really did want to do a book list of some of my favorite mothers. However, none specifically jumped to mind with exception to one and honestly, since I haven’t finished that book yet, that seemed unfair to include her; one has to read the full book to know whether or not we champion her as a mom. Plus that just seems like too much research. As I’ve already done a list of favorite TV mothers, this seems silly too but inspired by my recent binge of a 90s TV show and I thought, why not? Plus we’re making it a little more interesting by adding a favorite TV mom quiz, too!ONE RANDOM QUIZ + A LIST: SOME OF OUR FAVORITE MOTHERS FROM TV #SHOWS #TVSHOWS #MOTHERSDAY #QUIZ #TV Click To Tweet
All that to say, yes, we have lists full of favorite TV mothers from 2020 and last year, 2021 as well. So if there’s a favorite mother missing from this list, perhaps you’d spy them there. We cannot go forward without me getting a little sappy albeit very sincere and giving my mother a shout-out.
Happy mother’s day, mom! You’re the best and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you for listening and wanting the best for me. I wish I had your patience, because, let’s be honest, you need it a lot with me. Thank you for being you.
Let’s just jump right in, shall we? Basically I just really want to know what TV mothers you love!

1: BAILEY from COUNTRY COMFORT
In all seriousness, Bailey isn’t a mother, but as the all too short (still miffed Netflix axed this one) season progresses, she becomes like one to the five motherless kids she nanny’s for. It’s all kinds of charming and I did fall head over heels for this cute show. Stream the series exclusively on Netflix
2: TEMPERANCE BRENNAN from BONES
Unusual, yes, but I actually really like her as a mother. She’s not the normal fuzzy and warm TV mother, but she loves in her unique way and protects in a fierce manner. Shop the series digitally on Amazon Video
3: REBA HART from REBA
This is one of those characters audiences sincerely sympathize with because of her backstory, but she’s also strong and fierce and protective, and above all, a good mother. Shop the series digitally on Amazon Video
4: CAROL LAMBERT from STEP BY STEP
Carol is one of those no-nonsense mothers I love most on TV. She knows when her kids are pulling her leg or trying to get something from her they know she wouldn’t approve of and I think the results are always hilarious. Plus I just binged this entire 90s sitcom and it’s because of her that I kind of “had” to put this together. Shop the series digitally on Amazon Video; at publication it’s free with Freevee
5: PEARL NOLAN from WHITSTABLE PEARL
Her role as mother isn’t the most prominent role the writer’s give Pearl however she is still a mother first and loves her son fiercely. Shop the series digitally on Amazon Video or with an Acorn TV add on
6: DANI SANTINO from NECESSARY ROUGHNESS
Love the no nonsense type of mother Dani is. Things do get tense with her kids because of this, but I have this respect for mothers who can be mothers. So many shows put mother’s as a best friend. Shop the series digitally on Amazon Video
7: PRIYA SHAMSIE from THE CHELSEA DETECTIVE
Honestly, the journey of motherhood for Priya isn’t the focus of the show, but despite this, it does play an important role. I think it’s also interesting to see how the writers portray Priya’s new motherhood journey. She has an honest fear and seeing her realize that she’ll miss SO much joy if she lets that dominate is sweet.

8: MADDIE TOWNSEND from SWEET MAGNOLIAS
Maddie is the most charming and kind and loving as a mother of the mother characters. To be fair though, I only saw season one so perhaps I missed out on something not seeing season two (yet). But also, JoAnna Garcia is one of my favorite actors, so there is that too. Stream the series exclusively on Netflix
