A Tearful Mother's Day! Protect the Family's Smile! (涙の母の日!家族の笑顔守ります!! Namida no Haha no Hi! Kazoku no Egao Mamorimasu!!?) is the 14th episode for the season Heartcatch Pretty Cure! and also the 306th episode of the Pretty Cure franchise overall.


Nanami is very mature and motherly with her friends and others, but when her little sister Rumi shows hostility, she is forced to deal with her deeply seeded feelings of anguish as Mothers Day rolls by.


Erika forgot lunch, so Tsubomi offers half when she notices how hungry she is. Erika gets an idea and decides to ask her classmates if she could have a little bit of their food when she stops upon spotting Nanami's lunch. They note how fancy it is and Tsubomi comments on how well her mother makes lunches. Erika then points out that Nanami lost her mother years ago - which leaves Tsubomi feelin horribe. Nanami tells her to smile though, and claims it to be the most important thing, seemingly not bothered by the slip at all/

Later, Nanami shows some signs of artistic talent, but rejects the offer to join the fashion club, as she has to take care of her little sister.

After school ends, Nanami takes her little sister Rumi around to shop for dinner. As they know most of the people at the street, they are not afraid to bargain, even when they eventually come to the Hanasaki Flower Shop and find a carnation that Rumi wants to give to their mothers memorial.

At home, when Rumi looks at the picture, she starts crying and refuses to seek comfort with her sister. After dinner she runs away from home and Nanami follows after her - but when Rumi claims to hate her, this shocks Nanami deeply. She claims not to care about Rumi, which also hurts her and causes her to cry as Nanami storms off to the park.

With her anxieties growing, she has a break down and cries while hitting herself to try to make herself stop. She questions the statement of always smiling, and as it turns out her Heart Flower is locked, refusing to let her speak her true feelings. Sasorina sets her sights on this and opens the cage, stealing the flower to transform into a Desertrian.

Tsubomi and Erika transform to Pretty Cure and listen as the Desertrian speaks, crying out Nanami's real feelings and ringing up the present and how much she cares for Rumi and misses their mother - but tries her best to hide her pain for Rumi's sake.

Eventually, Pretty Cure manage to heal Nanami's wilting Heart Flower, causing Sasorina to run. In her sleep, Nanami remembers when she made a carnation for Mother's Day but she hadn't liked the results. Despite her work, her mother told her to smile; because they are the most important things.

When she wakes up, she finds Rumi crying into her lap and they apologize to each other. Nanami, finally realizing why smiling is so important and wipes Rumi's tears before telling her to smile. Tsubomi and Erika look from a distance, explaining how the carnation that was Nanami's Heart Flower means a mother's love.

The day afterward, Nanami and Rumi appear before Hanasaki Flower Shop again, Nanami was given a carnation from Rumi and she came by to ask to join the Fashion Club, as long as she can take some days off because of family, which Erika accepts.

At Mother's Day, it is revealed that Hanasaki Mizuki, Tsubomi's mother, and Kurumi Sakura, Erika's mother, received the presents the opposite girl usually gives to her mother.
