My mom is special in a lot of different ways, but here are just a few of them. She always compliments me in my work and my stories. She thinks they are funny, and so do I. She also cooks me a special homemade meal for my birthday. She will always make sure I am healthy and active. And she will read me a book every night and give me hugs and kisses. We make up handshakes and jokes together. She tries to make me laugh when I am sad about something. Like, she sings to be funny, but not a lot. She will try to sing a Britney Spears song in opera - it is so funny. I am usually the one who makes her laugh. She takes naps with me when I am sick. She makes me a sick couch and makes sure that I have everything that I need. I love that! She is always there for when I am sick or hurt. I love it when she "nurses" me back to health because then I feel like her little baby again. We take pictures of each other and talk on the phone a lot when she goes out of town.
My mom is always a special person to me and to others. I think that I should win this essay because everyone should know just what a special mom does for her kids.

My mom is wonderful. She is kind and generous. She cares for me every day and night (and makes dinner). She is always saying how bright I am. She is really as sweet as honey. My mom is very gentle and careful, and she's organized, too. And oh, how wonderful she is! I really do love her. She's really bright and super pretty. My mom is my hero, and she loves me a lot. Her name is Kaki, and to me it's like saying my favorite color. She's always thinking about the bright side and not the negative side! When I am scared, she always comes and calms me down. Every night my baby brother wakes up, and every night she goes in his room and puts him back to bed, and she is never cranky! (I just don't get it.) She definitely is the greatest mom on earth.

I ran across the article about writing an essay explaining why your mom is special, and I think, man, I don't have a chance, there's too many people going to enter. As you can tell, I finally got up the courage to write it. Everyone is going to say the most obvious things like her cooking, cleaning and how she understands everything. Well, that is great, but what's the difference from their...
