Let’s face it – yeah its rewarding, but being a mom can be exhausting. On my jogs along the Sea Point prominade in Cape Town I can’t tell you how many times I see a little munchkin toddling off towards the edge, and the mum (or gran) eagle eyes scanning the danger, always scanning ready to predict then next little accident, dashing in when they get too close or their little scooter is about to go over the edge!
Whether you’re spending this special day with your own mom, granny, mommy friend, or a mom-to-be, we think you’ll agree she deserves more me-time and huge thanks for keeping the next generation alive and thriving!
