My mom is the best in the whole wide world because she buys me everything I need. She also is the best cook in the world. The first reason my mom is the best in the world is she buys me everything! I can remember one time when my mom got me a desk and school supplies. She got me books so I can read in my room. The next reason is mom buys me the best clothes, like cute dresses. Another reason is she makes good cakes. When it’s my birthday, she is like a star! Mom makes delicious spaghetti with little meatballs. Yummy! Truly that’s why my mom is the most awesome on Earth. Do you agree?
