Motherhood is filled with moments in which we must make split second decisions like, “Bagel fell down cream cheese side up. Okay to eat?” At all times we must appear unflappable and prepared, our purses stuffed with tissues to dab skinned knees and tearful eyes. We are expected to have snacks and water on hand and to remember absolutely everything. 

Dianne Wiest has been the voice of reason in her portrayal of mothers facing peril for decades. We can glean inspiration from her calm resolve and tactful handling of many a family crisis. In Footloose, Edward ScissorhandsThe Lost Boys and Parenthood her characters tackle uniquely challenging issues with aplomb and even humor. So, if you're in need of some serious mothering inspiration, she's a great place to look.
