best mom in the world award

The gems as stereotypical moms
  • Pearl: Overprotective, but lovable, mom. Got the,"Mom of the month!" award from School Committee. Is jealous of Maya from the School Committee because Maya makes better lemon squares than her.
  • Amethyst: Cool mom every other kid wishes they had. Every mom on the School Committee hates her because she's that,"One mom." Picks kid up from school on a different vehicle every day.
  • Garnet: Silent mom every other kid is secretly afraid of. The School Committee loves her though. She makes the best orange squares.
  • Rose: Nerd mom that tries to act 'cool' around kid's friends. All the kids like her and she was hit on by a seven year old once. The moms absolutely ADORE her. ("Oh, Rose, did you make that cake?" "Rose, you have GOT to see this!" "Rose, did you hear what happened to Michelle's daughter earlier today?")
  • Jasper: Overenthusiastic soccer mom. Yelled at Cynthia from the School Committee and called her cookies,"Bland, tasteless, over glorified rice cakes." Absolutely hates School Committee meetings and does everything she can to get out of them.
  • Peridot: Forgetful mom. Doesn't remember they have basketball practice in ten minutes. Fell asleep at the monthly meeting of the School Committee and could only wake up when Jasper slapped her. (To be fair, it was lightly. And Rose, Pearl, and Lapis had already tried any alternatives and had given their consent to the practice.)
  • Lapis: Hot single mom. All the moms on the School Committee are super jelly of her, and all of their kids have crushes on her. Got flowers from an anonymous secret admirer a few times.
  • Ruby: Constantly worried mom. All the moms on the School Committee think it's scandalous she's in a relationship with Sapphire. Keeps up with the kids. Super good with them too.
  • Sapphire: Calm, keeps the peace mom. All the moms wonder how her kids never seem to fight and are constantly asking tips. They also think it's scandalous that she's in a relationship with Ruby. She's "That one mom" we all know.

Crazy Is Most Definitely Genetic by CaliCocoa

family!au where Jimin’s just trying to survive high school, Taehyung keeps weirding everyone out, Namjoon is an embarrassing dad, Jin is supermom, and Jungkookie’s just along for the ride.

Namjin // Yoonmin // Vhope
Domestic AU, featuring parents Namjin with their three kids, Taehyung, Jimin and Jungkook. And then we have Yoongi as Jimin’s boyfriend and Hobi as Tae’s. And the whole story is basically just random episodes from their life and how they deal with whatever situations come at them.

We have the definition of a super-mom, Seokjin, who wins best parent award. Then overly-protective dad Namjoon, also a hugely popular singer, composer and producer. Taehyung, the kid who is unapologetically himself no matter what, Jimin as that one kid who really wants to fit in and Jungkook who is the most adorable little baby, with his own view of the world. Hobi is Jimin’s friend who ends up becoming Taehyung’s love interest and Yoongi who is more than a little in love with Jimin.

What I really love about this fic is how well it deals with the different kinds of relationships people have as well as with the different lifestyles they experience. We have yoonmin and vhope, the teen relationships, where this is the most obvious. Where one is the typical high school kind of couple, the other is so obviously much more, and that’s something you can’t really understand unless you read it. 

A huge plus are the few chapters where the story is all told from baby Jungkook’s perspective. It’s absolutely adorable and, in a way, it really feels like that’s how a 3 year old would think about things happening around him. 

I might also like it because it’s very close to how I imagined my own kind of domestic au XD

7 Times Beyoncé Publicly Confessed Her Love For Jay Z

by TERRY CARTER

When it comes to discussing her personal life, Beyoncé might be the queen of secrecy. Even her 2008 wedding to Jay Z was kept under wraps until the singer decided to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at their special day during their joint On the Run tour in 2014. Blue Ivy’s mom hasn’t always been so tight-lipped, though — every now and then, Beyoncé shows us her vulnerable side and lets the world know just how much she truly adores her husband. Keep reading for seven times Beyoncé was proudly Jay Z’s biggest fan.

1. When She Gave Him a Special Shout-Out After Winning an Award

After winning the Billboard Millenium Award in 2011, Beyoncé made sure to mention her husband in her acceptance speech.

“I’d also like to thank my best friend. I don’t wanna put you on the spot [because] I know they’re probably putting the camera in your face right now. But I love me some Jay Z!”

2.  When She Gave a Heartfelt Toast About How Much She Loves Him

In her 2013 HBO special, Beyoncé gave fans an exclusive look at her life beyond the lights. During one scene, she tears up while giving a birthday toast to Jay Z.

“You’ve taught me so many things. You taught me how to be a woman. You taught me how to love. You taught me how to be a friend. You’ve given me so much in life and this is not enough. It’s not enough I can give you. I just want you to be happy. And every year, I’m even more in love with you and I want to spend everyday of my life with you. Happy birthday and I thank God for you every day.”

3. When She Opened Up About Their Unbreakable Bond

In 2013, Beyoncé gave one of her now-rare interviews to Vogue, in which she opened up about how Jay Z helps her balance her chaotic celebrity lifestyle.

“Just knowing someone’s always going to be honest and tell the truth, [who] can understand exactly what I’m going through — and I can understand exactly what he’s going through.”

4.  When She Was Excited to See Him After Being on Tour

While touring the world in 2009 during her I Am … World Tour, Beyoncé started a countdown to when she would see her husband. When the day finally arrived, Beyoncé was so happy she came up with a little cheer to express her excitement.

“And I am on to see my husband. I’m happy. I’m happy. I’m happy!”

5.  When She Said She Needed to Make Love to Her Husband

In 2011, Beyoncé fired her father, Mathew Knowles, as her longtime manager. The stress of their strained relationship became too much for the superstar, and she candidly revealed that Jay Z was the best stress reliever.

“I need to listen to ‘Make Love to Me’ [known as '1+1’] and make love to my husband.”

6.  When She Told Barbara Walters She Was His “Groupie 

"During a 2011 interview with the ladies at The View, former host Sherri Sheppard put the "Drunk in Love” singer on the spot when she asked Beyoncé if she became closer to Jay Z during her year off of extensive touring.

“I’ve always been a Jay Z groupie,” Beyoncé said with a laugh.

7.  When She Gushed About Him as a Dad

In 2013, Oprah asked Beyoncé about her marriage to Jay Z and got the notoriously private star to share.

“I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man. It just gives me such a foundation. He has helped me on so many levels. We were friends first, for a year and a half, before we went on any date. On the phone for a year and a half. And that foundation is so important in a relationship. And just to have someone that you just like is so important. And someone that is honest.”
