You can be Queen Mother without a Hat and Gloves

Forget what you hear about Pageant Mothers—most of the festival moms are ordinary, hardworking parents, who support their daughters in their volunteerism but don’t push them into the spotlight. The shallow, pageant-obsessed mothers (seen in movies and on TV) are the exception, not the rule, and when you do meet them in this context, they stand out pretty nakedly with their emphasis on shoes and clothes and the perks of travel. In contrast, the new Yambilee Queen’s mom seen here talked excitedly about her daughter’s community work in past titles such as Forest Queen and Swamp Pop Queen.
