Mums are special...

This Sunday we celebrate Mothers Day. Mothers know that a child's growth Is not measured by height or years or grade. It is marked by the progression of Mummy to Mum to Mother…

The Images of Mother
4 years of age - my mummy can do anything!
8 years of age - my mum knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 years of age - my mother doesn’t know everything!
14 years of age - my mother? She wouldn’t have a clue.
16 years of age - mother? She’s so five minutes ago.
18 years of age - that old woman? She’s way out of date!
25 years of age - well, she might know a little bit about it!
35 years of age - before we decide, let's get mum's opinion.
45 years of age - wonder what mum would have thought about it?
65 years of age - wish I could talk it over with mum.

On this Sunday we have a great opportunity to give that recognition to mums especially those mums who have decided to give up on their career to look after their children. Let’s say thanks to our mums! All too often we can take our mums for granted - so it's a good thing that Mother's Day is around to remind us to celebrate an important woman in our lives. Quite simply, none of us would be here without our mums!  To celebrate this event Who let the dads out will be holding an Open Day at Hoole Lighthouse Centre on Sat April 2nd.  The morning will be packed with activities for children and dads to make a special surprise for mum, including cupcake decorating and card making.  It’s a fantastic opportunity for any dads or male carers to come along with their children and see what we’re all about. You’ll get valuable time with your children, and mum will get some well deserved time off, everyone wins! “The session starts for dads and their children from 10am. Mums are invited to come along from 11.30am to view the creative endeavors of their loved ones and enjoy a picnic lunch, finishing when all the food is gone. It should be an extremely enjoyable family event”.

Let’s say thanks to our mums! All too often we can take our mums for granted - so it's a good thing that Mother's Day is around to remind us to celebrate an important woman in our lives. Quite simply, none of us would be here without our mums!
