5 Great Moms from Christmas Movies
2. Kate McAllister from Home Alone.
There's no escaping it. Kate McAllister is a bad mom for leaving her eight-year-old son home alone while she jets off to Paris for the holidays. BUT, she's an AWESOME mom for doing everything in her power to get back to Kevin, including hawking her jewelry in exchange for a flight to Dallas and riding in a rental truck with the Polka Kings of the Midwest for HOURS. I also love it that she's not afraid to discipline Kevin. (Ok, so it really wasn't his fault for freaking out about who ate his cheese pizza.) Still, I gotta give props to a mom who knows it is in her child's best interest to discipline him.
