Sunday is Mother’s Day, so don’t forget to forget about it and then throw together some last minute flowers or a card or something before brunch. Also, don’t forget your mom is definitely your biggest fan and probably loves you the most.

Here are some seriously bad ass moms who did stuff like fight off bears and tornadoes and Chevy Impalas — or saved a child with a freaking hug — to remind you of your mom and maybe make you cry.

So she ran behind the car and placed herself on the ground horizontally as a speed bump to stop the car until a neighbor came to help. Her knee was crushed, hips injured and shoulder dislocated. "My daughters are my everything, my everything," said Tran. "... And I knew at that time it was either mine or theirs." (Photo: YouTube/Screenshot)

Zeeman and her toddler were inside. When one of the suspects aimed his gun at her little girl, Demi, Zeeman shielded the girl and took five bullets to the back. She made it through surgery and survived, and Demi was unharmed. (Photo: Flickr/Creative Commons)

  • <a href="http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/video/amputee-mom-saves-kids-indiana-tornado-15862680">Stephanie Decker</a> wrapped her two kids in a comforter and shielded them with her body just before a tornado wrecked her Indiana home. Her son, 8, and her daughter, 6, survived unscathed, but Decker's legs were crushed in the debris. Decker thought she would die before help arrived, but struggled to remain conscious for her kids. "They needed me," Decker said. "They had to have me." Her legs were later amputated, but she survived. (Photo: YouTube/Screenshot)
  • When <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2014/04/02/health/joice-pregnancy-cancer/">Elizabeth Joice</a> was one month pregnant, she learned the cancer she had been battling had returned. Surgeons removed tumors from her back, but were unable to determine if it had spread elsewhere without risking the baby's life. So Joice chose to forego the potentially life saving MRI and have the baby. After Lily was born, doctors found cancer in Joice's heart, abdomen, and pelvis. She passed away six weeks later.

She was told her premature baby boy was dead (after efforts to resuscitate him failed). But as she was holding him and saying goodbye, he suddenly started breathing again. The boy and his twin sister are now four years old. (Photo: YouTube/Screenshot)
