Mother's Day is one of the many days we celebrate our moms and all they do for us. Without them, we wouldn't be here, learning from our mothers' values and creating defining paths for our lives. Mothers are the backbone of the family, the ones who fight for their kids and balance everything else.

As an appreciation, we want to give Mom a day for herself to do what she wants and how she desires to celebrate Mother's Day.

Some moms may want to celebrate by attending brunch, while some prefer a relaxing day at home with their families or a shopping trip to their favorite stores to purchase that outfit they had their eye on. Others may desire a weekend away to have some "me time" and come back more motherly.

For those mothers who want a day inside, binge-watching a comfort show is a fun way to spend the day. We have the five best shows with strong mothers for your Mother's Day celebration, which includes a little of everything to choose from.

The Golden Girls (1985-1992)

The Golden Girls is a motherload of laughs and life moments. Take Sophia Petrillo (Estelle Getty), for example. She's cultured and sarcastic and often uses her daughter, Dorothy Zbornak (Bea Arthur), as a muse at her expense. At the same time, Sophia offers old-age wisdom and experiences that not only help her daughter organize her life but also her best friends Blanche (Rue McClanahan) and Rose (Betty White) as well.

All seven seasons of The Golden Girls, plus its CBS spinoff, The Golden Palace, are on Hulu.

I Love Lucy (1951-1956)

I Love Lucy is the perfect show to look at motherhood in the 1950s. Lucy Ricardo (Lucille Ball) and her Cuban bandleader husband, Ricky (Desi Arnaz), teach their son Little Ricky to be a proper gentleman while having fun and being a kid. While some of the content may feel outdated by today's norms, it wasn't unusual. Children of the 50s era (also known as Boomers) tend to pass down the last of the family's legacy, hoping it won't be forgotten in time.

I Love Lucy is streaming on Paramount+.

THE SIMPSONS: Homer's mother Mona (guest voice Glenn Close) pays the family an unexpected visit and then makes an unexpected exit in the "Mona Leaves-a" episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, May 11 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. THE SIMPSONS ª and © 2008 TCFFC ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. /

The Simpsons (1989-present)

Since 1989, Marge Simpson (Julie Kavner) has been TV's favorite animated mom, and rightfully so because she has a lot on her plate—or, should we say, Homer's. She has to deal with Bart's constant shenanigans and pranks, keep up with Lisa's intelligence, watch Maggie grow up, and deal with Homer's tomfoolery while balancing the household and life outside it.

But Marge is more than just a mom. She's a mom with many passions and goals just like anyone, and she places others first before herself, which in our book, makes her a supermom.

The Simpsons can be streamed on Disney+, with the current season on Hulu.

The 100 (2014-2020)

In The 100, there is a lot of tension between Clarke Griffin (Eliza Taylor) and her mom, Abby (Paige Turco), mainly because her mom sent her down to the ground to fend not only for herself but also for the other kids who went with her. Additionally, Clarke sees her mother unravel, affecting her immensely because Abby is still her mother, which pains her. Abby's not perfect, and she knows it, but she unconditionally loves Clarke and has the utmost faith in her daughter.

Clarke experiences motherhood herself In season 5 when she "adopts" Madi (Lola Flannery) and wants to do her best despite making mistakes. She's still learning, but in the end, she raised Madi well and allowed her to make her own choices.

The 100 can be streamed on Netflix.
