Mother's Day is approaching, and as usual, Maxwell is trying to preoccupy the children so that they won't think about their mother, Sara. Fran, on the other hand, thinks it a good idea to talk to the kids about their mother. This year just prior to Mother's Day, Maxwell and the family have joined a new country club. Scoping out the club, Maxwell, Fran and Grace learn that the club is having Mother's Day festivities, including a mother-daughter pageant. Grace wants to enter the pageant with Fran, which Maxwell thinks not a good idea since he believes Grace will ultimately grieve the loss of Sara again. However, Maxwell ultimately gives in to Grace's wishes. But on Mother's Day after one of the competing mother-daughter's - ultra competitive Bobbi Jo and Betty Jo - deem Fran and Grace ineligible for the pageant since Fran is not Grace's mother, Grace does storm out from the pageant stating that she has no mother. Later, Grace admits her anger is not grief for missing her deceased mother... Written by
