my second favorite mom

edwina mcdunnough from raising arizona (1987) is the greatest mom in all of cinema, barrenness notwithstanding. she's a whiz behind the wheel, she knows "down in the willow garden" and she'll make sure you get your dip/tet. most importantly, she loves nathan jr. so much. she walks straight into the teeth of certain doom without flinching to save that baby. she's almost as badass as my mom.


  1. I started out with her as my role model, but somewhere along the line, I ended up more like the Frances McDormand character.
