We all know that moms are the only reason civilized society exists. How else would we have learned to use manners and not club other kids over the head to get what we wanted? Seriously, we’d still be cavepeople if not for moms!
We also know you want to recognize all of the special mothers in your life, so we’re here to give you the best ideas for all types of moms, based on our favorite TV moms. Figure out which of these leading ladies is most like your mom, and we’ll tell you exactly how to make her day. It’ll be much better than that year you made her an ashtray in art class even though she’s never smoked.missing or outdated ad config
If your mom is a kind, nurturing woman who faces every challenge with a smile and a positive attitude, she’s Carol Brady.
Take her to the Cheekwood in May festival featuring Amanda Parer: Intrude.
Carol Brady would love nothing more than an idyllic day in the great outdoors with her brood, smelling the flowers and skipping through meadows with giant glowing bunnies, and your mom will love it too.
If your mom tells it like it is and isn’t afraid to be her rowdy, irreverent, hilarious self, she’s Roseanne Connor.
Take her to Monell’s for a mouth-watering special lunch. She can hold court while enjoying a family-style meal with her favorite kid. (That’s you if you give her the last of the corn pudding.)
If your mom was counterculture before that was even a thing, she’s Morticia Addams.
What more would an OG goth want than a jam sesh with the original emo rock band? Take your delightfully moody mama to see Dashboard Confessional at the Ryman. She’ll be especially delighted to be part of a rock concert at the Mother Church. It doesn’t get more counterculture than that.
If your mom is the life of the party who can always be counted on to make people laugh (whether she meant to or not), she’s Lucy Ricardo.
What better place to show off her style and personality than at Iroquois Steeplechase? Whether she loves that high society life in a private box or she’s more of a good-times infield gal, she’ll have plenty of opportunities to be the belle of the ball.
No matter which TV mom she resembles, make your mom’s weekend with one of these uniquely Nashville events. After all, if it wasn’t for her, you’d still be eating with your hands and wearing the same underwear three days in a row.
