Ten TV Mom Characters To Love - TV Season 2007-2008

Nora Walker
Brothers and Sisters
- She's always there. Even when her kids don't want her to be. And she's always right. That's why her kids are glad she's always there.
  • “What you don’t remember is when you had the chicken pox, Sarah had the chicken pox, and Tommy had the chicken pox, and Kevin had the chicken pox, and I had a very bad cold, your dad was out of town on business. Sweetheart, I’m saying this to you with as much love as I possibly can: Sometimes motherhood means sucking it up. Kitty, go suck it up.”
Sarah Walker
Brothers and Sisters
- The company president who's recently been divorced. She's a superwoman.
  • "I’m a good mother. I know that. I may not be able to drop them off at school every day, but I am their mother, every day. You can’t punish me for trying to parent and work. I want my kids to know the joy that I get from my work, but it’s nothing compared to the joy that I get from being their mother, every day. And they know that. Please.”
Holly Harper
Brothers and Sister
- Well sure she is the other woman, but does that make her less of a mother?
  • “Nora had a husband and a family and money. I scraped together everything for us. I took care of you every single day of your life. Do you know I wasn’t much older than you when I got pregnant? Can you imagine that? Being here by yourself and trying to support a child? But I did it. And if I had to give up some of my dreams, so be it. Because from then on, I put you first." | Video
