I accept that I am Moira Rose from “Schitt’s Creek.” I may look put together on the outside but on the inside I’m a hot mess.
Jesse Cantor, Haddonfield

My son says I’m like the mom from the original “Karate Kid” movies (as opposed to “Cobra Kai” on Netflix.) She is a Jersey girl with a sense of humor, warmth and optimism. I’ll take it.
Lisa Barra, Marlton

If you believe my kids, I’m Beverly Goldberg. They say I smother them all the time and get involved with…everything. Also that I am “extra.”
Audrey Jastrow, Cherry Hill

I’m Linda Belcher from FOX’s “Bob’s Burgers.” I sing all the time about the most mundane things: making meatloaf, instructions on how to fold the laundry, etc.
Katie Radbill, Marlton

My mom model is Regina George’s mom from “Mean Girls.” Like her, I’m the “cool” mom, plugged in to my kids’ lives but not overbearing. (They may beg to differ on that point.)
Sophie Zandman, Mt. Holly

Dr. Rainbow Johnson on “Black-ish” is the perfectly imperfect TV mom. She makes it feel ok for me to admit that raising kids while pursuing a career is hard. Also that it’s ok to laugh at myself when my attempts at balancing it all fall short.
Raina James, Voorhees

Carol Brady. Just like my girl Carol, I am a mom who believes my children’s happiness comes first and am willing to go above and beyond to ensure that my children have the best possible lives – but I like to do so with style. I also believe a good family dinner and a hug sets everyone back on track.
Loretta Lewis, Haddonfield

My daughter and I are like Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, because it’s just the 2 of us and we are so close.
Rachel Lippoff, Cherry Hill

Debra Barone, the mom from “Everybody Loves Raymond” is always trying to maintain household order. Sometimes she stresses out and gets irritable. I could relate to her stress triggers, especially when I was working fulltime, maintaining a home, taking care of 2 kids, and getting my husband to “step up,” and he always did ’cause he’s a good guy.
Cheri Schlags, Mt. Laurel

No question, it’s Marge Simpson. The blue-haired mom keeps her family grounded and maintains order in all the chaos of Simpsons’ family life. That’s me! Marge is not always the loudest of the group, but she shows perseverance and fortitude throughout many episodes.
Kim Molesan, Cherry Hill

I am Wilma Flintstone. She’s the rock in this modern stone-age family. She’s very patient with her family, keeping Fred in check. She has a strong support network that includes her BFF Betty and many big pets. And she rocks big jewelry.
Donna Monique, Cinnaminson

I’m afraid I may be George Costanza’s mother.
Teri Nover, Cherry Hill

Jill Taylor of “Home Improvement” is most like me. She’s always a great source of support for her energetic family and the grounded voice of reason when her spouse has some very unique solutions to problems. She does it all with a smile.
Patricia Lyons, Moorestown
