Im a big TV watcher. Can't help it. During the 80's and 90's growing up, its what we did. Early morning cartoons, after school, watching the news with dinner in our laps. All normal behaviour for me and my brother.

 One of our (mine and hubby's)  favourite weekly shows at the moment is "The Middle". I think it because I can see a lot of myself in "Frankie". I like watching it because they seem a lot like a "normal" family. So I have decided that if you cross Lois from "Malcolm in the Middle" and Frankie from "The Middle" You get me.

 It got me thinking about the other Tv Mums (Moms) we've grown up watching. So Ive compiled my top 10.

  1. Claire Huxtable from the Cosby Show
  2. Jill Taylor from Home Improvement
  3. Mrs Cunningham from Happy Days
  4. Debra Barone from Everybody loves Raymond
  5.  Peggy Bundy from Married with Children
  6. Maire Barone from Everybody loves Raymond
  7. Fran Fine from the Nanny
  8. Lois from Malcolm in the Middle
  9. Frankie Heck from the Middle.
  10. Lorelie Gilnore from the Gilmore Girls.

Who were your favourite TV moms?

Is there any that you identify with?

I always wished I was as cool as Lorelei from Gilmore Girls. She had such a great rapport with her daughter - but even THEY had their issues, so I take heart from her.

Haha - the scary thing is, I remember and watched almost all those shows also!

LOVED Gilmore Girls and The Cosby Show! Have got all of the Gilmore Girls on DVD... yep, loved them!

I loved Claire Huxtable. Calm, cool collected.... very smooth. And Lorelei from Gilmore girls was like the best friend everyone wants. I'd love to be as "cool" as she is... but the line between friend and mother was a bit too blurred for me!!
