Susan Heffley is Greg's mother. Susan is a middle class mom who is caring, but sometimes overcaring. Susan is a good mom and wife, but sometimes embarrasses her children (especially Greg), but she is nearly always cheery and accepting. She also likes to call Greg "Honeybunches", which usually embarrasses Greg. The fact that she almost never removes her glasses (except on page 33 of Rodrick Rules and in Dog Days), bears a resemblance to June Drabble, another cartoon character. Greg often shows evidence that Susan doesn't understand kids at Greg's age. Greg says she likes "just about every kind of music ever to exist" and dancing, even to Rodrick's heavy metal music. Susan once humiliated Rodrick when she started dancing onstage during his performance at the Talent Show, which was recorded and got on the Internet, known as the "Dancing Mom" video in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules. In Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days she spends the entire summer annoying Greg with her over enthusiasm for "family bonding", doing things like making him and Frank go on Father son bonding trips and interrupting his indoor time. She is sometimes consider annoying to Greg and Rodrick, and she seems to love Manny the most.
