Our mom has always been there for us, no questions asked. She has been our biggest cheerleader for everything we’ve done, no matter how small or big of a deal it was. She has been the one to listen when we’ve had a bad day or help us work through how to solve our problems. She’s the first to laugh or cry with us and is always there to support us. She never fails to let us know how much she loves us, and I hope she knows how much we love her in return — even all the way from Italy.Lauren Swisher, 20 & Stephanie Swisher, 17Saddlebrook
There are many kids in the world who call their mom the best. I may be one of those people, but I’m sure my mom is the best, because she’s sincerely caring and helpful.I think my mom is the best in Southwest because she is sincerely caring. Many moms say “I love you.” But you can see it in my mom’s eyes that she really means it. As you look in her eyes, you can almost see her think about how much she sincerely is speaking from the bottom of her heart. When she says “I love you,” it immediately makes you feel like you got a hug from a fluffy bunny.My mom helps me with my homework every time I need it. Some moms just give their kids the answers without realizing it, but my mom does the complete opposite. As I’m doing my homework, I often come across problems I don’t understand. My mom is like a parrot on your shoulder, ready to swoop down and assist you. She writes you a different problem and walks you through it slowly; she practices over and over again until you know it as well as your ABCs.My mom isn’t just the best mom in Southwest; she is the best mom in the whole world. She is always there when you fall off the saddle, to pick you up, dust you off and get you back on the saddle.Casey Barnes, 11 Bay Hill
My mom is the best in Southwest because she is pretty with her pretty gold dress on. When I am doing my homework, my mom helps me spell stuff. My mom is a good runner; she can run 10 miles per hour. My mom is a good cook; she makes the best cinnamon rolls. My mom is kind to me and my sister the same amount. My mom plays fun games with me, like Xbox games.
Matthew Christensen, 7 Dr. Phillips
Thousands of kids say that their mom is the best mom ever. Well, I guarantee that my mom is the true best mom, not just in the world, but in the universe. I bet you’re wondering why. Well, that’s what I’m about to tell you.My mom has an amazing sense of humor. For example, she dances randomly and sings crazy made-up songs just to get me up in the morning. For me, that’s the best way to get up, because I hate getting up in the morning. Sometimes, I even think I got my crazy sense of humor from her.My mom’s love is amazing. My mom is one of the most kind people I have ever known. That’s because she’s always thinking of others and helping other people before herself. My mom is also the best snuggler alive. When I was young and got hurt, she would kiss it better and snuggle with me until the tears dried up, and I had a smile on my face again. Chloe Bell, 10 The Oaks of Windermere
My mom is loving and kind. She is kind because she cares about every living thing. She also does not say mean things. She even started a swear jar. She thinks about others. If someone falls off a bike or something, she will ask if they are OK.My mom is fun. She makes cool new games with me and my brother, like who can cook the best meal or who can write the most things about something. She also lets us do almost anything we want. Once, me and my brother had a water fight with the dog! Another cool thing is she makes the best food.Lastly, she keeps the house clean. She picks up stuff like games or books. My mom picks up almost anything, as long as it’s not gross. She also does stuff like sweep or Swiffer. I learned to love cleaning from her. I hope my house is as clean as hers when I’m older. Celia Mercier, 8 Windermere Downs
Everybody has a mom, but I think my mom is the best, because she is happy, kind, nice and fun, yet she is strict and firm.Born in the middle of the night with no doctor and, of course, no painkillers for Mom, I was quite a surprise for her. I was a 9-pound baby, and I came out within 20 minutes after my mom started to feel the pain — an exciting childbirth story for the family.Despite the severe pain, my mom did not blame me a bit. As I grow, I feel the love from my mom every day. From breakfast to dinner, from hair to toenails, from hats to socks, my mom has been taking good care of me for 10 wonderful years. She is my loudest cheerleader, no matter if it is a swim meet, pinewood derby or Easter-egg hunt. She taught me to look at everything in an optimistic way with a sense of humor and made me a happy person. Mom showers me with love, but she never spoils me. I am not allowed to use my homework pass, because she said homework is important for my learning. I thank my mom for my academic success. As a mother of four kids and a businesswoman, my mom has a very tight schedule. However, she still spends her weekends taking us to volunteer at community events. How can you not agree that my mom is the best?Brandon Tran, 10 Phillips Cove
My mom is the role model of the house who everyone loves and respects. She is fun, kind, caring and so much more. She is always looking for something fun for my family to do. She is beautiful inside and out. Her beautiful brown eyes gently watch over me and my family. Her beautiful brown hair is identical to mine, as it sways gently in the wind. Her beautiful face is sometimes all I want to see.She takes me and my family on fun cruises and vacations to unique places such as the Bahamas or New York. When my family members or I get hurt, she is there to help us. Her personality is fun-loving and cheerful almost every day. Sometimes, she is sad if she has had a hard day, but most of the time she is happy as can be. Her smile is brighter than the sun.She knows what is right and what is wrong. She is always teaching my brother and me new things. My mommy helps my brother and me with our endless homework. She is a friend, doctor and teacher, but mostly, she’s my mommy. That is why I think my mommy is the best in Southwest.Kennedy Negrete, 9 Silver Woods
Our mom is the best because of her oversized amount of love. Mom has always been there for us, even when all odds were against us. Times were extremely tough, and we had no idea where to turn. She has never stopped loving us, even through all of our hardships. She was a single mom for three years, and instead of investing time in boyfriends, work, money and her own friends, she used all of it to take care of us. Now, she not only has Austin and me, who are 15 and just got our driving permits (with Austin driving, your faith in Jesus becomes stronger), but she also has my baby sister, who is 3 years old and requires a boatload of attention; my 24-year-old sister, who is, well ... her; my stepdad, who is unique to describe; and, in addition, our 52-pound Bernese mountain puppy. Yet she still has time for all of us wonderful and slightly annoying children. The worst thing she ever did — which “worst” is a strong word for it — is throw away my beloved Converse All Stars, because my attention span is shorter than my sister’s.God has blessed me with her, and has rewarded her for what she is still doing. We love you, Mom, and hope you can fathom how much we appreciate you. Love,Ethan & AustinEthan Billhime, 15 & Austin Billhime, 15Estates at Windermere
My mommy is the best, because she loves me and takes me to school in the spy car. She lets me eat ice cream before dinner. We watch TV together, and she reads books to me. When we go shopping and I’m a good boy, she lets me get a toy. We go to Disney and ride all of my favorite rides. Most of all, I love when Mommy gives me a big squeeze and a kiss as she tucks me into bed. I love you, Mommy.Josh Gacek, 5 Pembrooke
My mom is the best in Southwest because she cares for me. When I’m sad, she cheers me up. She also gives me hugs before I go to bed. That helps me to not feel down when I sleep.Mom loves me, and I love her back. But the main reason she’s the best mom in Southwest Orlando is because she protects me. For example, if there is something bad happening, she can get me out of it. Then I won’t get hurt. Devin Clancy, 8 Clubhouse Estates
