    I chose Rose. Dorothy, while funny, would be too strict. If I could have Rose but not in a country environment, perfect.

    I chose Sophia. She's a great mother (she raised Dorothy, didn't she?!). And she seems to give great advice. I also think she loves her kids, and she knows when to give them "tough love" and when to just leave them alone.

    I picked Dorothy because she's level headed, very smart and extremely sarcastic.

    And she could always go to sophia for advice if needed.

    I would choose Blanche. She was so funny. I bet she'd give you lots of hugs & kisses too!

    I wouldn't want Blanche giving me hugs and kisses. . .I love the character, but Lordy only knows where her lips have been. I would want Rose as a mother. You could go to her about anything, even sex, and although she wouldn't always be comfortable discussing it, I wouldn't feel embarrassed b/c she's so sweet. I would love Rose as a mom, without a doubt. I like the character, but Dorothy would be too mean, and Sophia, I love her, too, but she's sometimes a bit harsh on Dorothy. I wouldn't want her throwing my sex life in my face all the time.

    Not necessarily. Blanche talks in several episodes about how she didn't have much to do with raising her kids. She had nannies/governesses to do all of that.

    I remember that episode.  It was hilarious.

    I'm just paraphrasing here, it went something like, I had to wake up in the middle of the night and run down stsirs and scream for the governess.

    I agree. Rose would be too slow for me. As my mother, I choose Sophia because she is funny, and she can give good advice!

    Dorothy would also be a good mother because she is smart. I love her sarcasm too!

    Blanche- I would rather have here as a friend than a mother.

       Without a doubt, Sophia. It would be such a joy listening to her words of wisdom, and cheesecake and coffee too.

    Rose would be the best mother because she is the most loving and she has the best stories. Sophia would be a great mother because of her wisdom.

    I'd have to pick Dorothy.  I would look for different qualities in a mother than a friend.  She would tell you like it is ... and if you weren't a big screw up, you'd probably make her happy most of the time.

    I would say Rose because you would have had the best bedtime stories as a kid!

    Wow, noone wants Blanche as a mom. She would have been my 3rd choice behind Rose.

    I chose Dorothy. She's level-headed and seems like a kind mother.
    Sophie seems like she might be too fierce for me.
    Rose would be nice, but I wouldn't want a mother who's as silly as she is.
    Blanche would probably embarrass me somehow. Assuming her husband would still be dead, she might have different guys around most of the time.
