Mom; she’s your rock. But how much do you know about her life BEFORE you? Do you even want to know about it?

Well, turns out that according to a new poll, 89% of people think they know a pretty good amount of facts about mom’s life pre kid(s).

  1. Where she grew up.  74% of people know the answer to that one.
  2. Where she went to high school or college, 60%.
  3. The name of the street she grew up on, 50%
  4. What her first job was, 49%.
  5. Her ancestry, 48%.

The poll also asked people to name the top TRAITS they got from their mom.

The top five answers were:

  1. Her compassion
  2. Her sensitivity
  3. Her work ethic
  4. Her sense of humor
  5. Her good looks.


So, if you REALLY know your Mom well, does she actually love getting a card and flowers for Mother’s Day?

According to TWO new surveys… YES! Mom loves getting anything sentimental.

A survey by YouGov.com found the top ten things moms want this year are:

  1. Flowers
  2. a spa day
  3. a card
  4. a day to themselves
  5. something sentimental
  6. a day with no chores
  7. jewelry
  8. something homemade
  9. candy
  10. clothes
    (Only 1% of women in the survey said electronics are the #1 thing they want.)

The second survey by Groupon found the top things moms want are:

  1. A nice meal at a restaurant
  2. flowers
  3. a card
  4. something their child made them
  5. something sentimental
  6. perfume
  7. jewelry
  8. clothes
  9. a massage
  10. a spa package.
    (So a spa day, jewelry, and clothes also made both lists.)


Now, the real question is…. if your life were a movie, WHO would play your Mom? Here are the top Actresses set to play Mom!

  1. Meryl Streep
  2. Sally Field
  3. Julia Roberts
  4. Jennifer Lopez
  5. Angelina Jolie
  6. Oprah Winfrey
  7. Jennifer Aniston
  8. Michelle Obama
  9. Melissa McCarthy
  10. Queen Latifah
  11. Catherine Zeta-Jones
  12. Annette Bening

  15.  Courteney Cox
  16. Octavia Spencer
