Maddie Decker, a member of Nancy Rollins 5th grade class, used this opportunity to talk about how grateful she is for all her mom’s hard work. Decker’s essay, featured below, is sure to make her mother feel good on her special day..

My mom is the best mom in Maricopa because she is awesome. She keeps the house clean, makes sure I get to bed on time, and takes me to fun places. She has the toughest job, being a mom.

Between all her hard work she does, she squeezes in time for fun. My mom is the greatest mom in Maricopa because she is always there for me. If I am sad, she cheers me up. We do a lot of mother-daughter things, too. I think my mom is the best mom in Maricopa. She is fun, loving, and really nice. After reading my essay, you should think so too.

If you would like to show appreciation for your mother like Decker did, please send an essay of no more than 200 words to addressing “Why My Mom is the Best Mom is Maricopa.”

Prizes for the contest include Bashas’ gift certificates and floral bouquets. First place winner will take home $100 Bashas’ gift certificate, second place will receive a $50 Bashas’ gift certificate and third place will receive a $25 Bashas’ gift certificate. Winners will be notified this Friday.
