We had 9 entries in the Cool Mama Contest. Thirty votes were cast, and each mama received support. Most also received a nod for Honorable Mention.
So without further ado, here is the winner:
Congratulations to Lin (Pricilla points out the fact that she's the one with her mouth open) and her Cool Mama, Phyl. Most supporters mentioned the matching outfits and red bows in the hair. Some declared that it wasn't because of anybody begging for votes. In any case, Phyl won hearts and a strong plurality of the votes cast.
Honorable Mention must go to Patricia's mother, Dorothy. The concept of the ceramic cat facing north intrigued all of us. Go back and read the story if you missed it.
Thanks to Vanilla, Jo, Ida, PJ, Dawn, Sharkbytes and Clara for sharing the photos and stories of their cool mamas. They are beautiful, brilliant, sassy, strong, tenacious, adaptable, loving and -- face it -- COOL! It was a moving experience to read the stories of each of these mothers. Thank God for mothers and for loving children!
Now that the results are in, I can tell you that Clara shares her mother with me. It was really neat when she entered our cool mama in the contest so that I didn't have to do it. Thanks Sis.
Maybe this summer we'll have a Hot Mama Contest. What do you think?.
