    Now THERE’S an award she’ll be proud of. I bet she’d even think about showing up for the awards ceremony, if there was one. Every mother likes to be called a good mum.

    A very wonderful honor for Kate. Congrats!!

    The Best Mum award sounds fantastic for music industry mothers. Forget the grammys or the Brit awards, the entertainmnet industry ought to consider such a potential gala ceremony for the future for good mothers.

    It would be nice if they had a “best fathers” award, as well. What’s good for the goose, etc., etc.
