Quotes: Missing Mom
"Did the Disney company just commit matricide when the child is born?"

...the father is never around and the mother died of the fatal off-camera disease..."
The Nostalgia Critic, review of Mr. Nanny

"I think about how it ain't fair
That you weren't there to braid my hair, like mothers do
You weren't around to cheer me on,
Help me dress for my high school prom, like mothers do
Did you think I didn't need you here?
To hold my hand, to dry my tears?
Did you even miss me through the years at all?"
Kellie Pickler, "I Wonder"

It's so lovely that you're sharing.
No, really, I'm all ears.
But where has all this caring been
For sixteen years?
Natalie, Next To Normal
