It’s when you celebrate your mum and how she’s been really good to you and stuff. Emily, 10.
It’s a time to celebrate that you have a mum. Goldie, 9.

It’s when mums have a special day and sometimes get presents. Callum, 8.
What do you love the most about your mum?
She’s very nice and every week, each of us kids gets to go on a date with our mum or our dad and we get to choose what we do. One time my mum took me out to her friend’s farm to ride on her horse! Grace, 10.
She’s cuddly and she reads me stories every night. Goldie, 9.
She’s so kind and sweet and makes me dinner and breakfast and lunch. Abigail, 9.
What’s your favourite thing to do with your mum?
Probably driving in the car by ourselves so we can talk. Emily, 10.
Going clothes shopping or toy shopping, but not food shopping because that’s boring. Abigail, 9.
When we draw animals together. Kadee, 6.
What makes your mum happy?
When I give her a hug. Rachel, 6. When we do something for her like tidy up the house. Goldie, 9.
If I do some chores without being asked, or make tea for my mum while she’s still in bed without being asked, or make breakfast without being asked. Abigail, 9.
What makes you proud of your mum?
She’s a surgeon and she’s the boss. Grace, 10. I was proud of my mum when she came to my prize giving. Abigail, 9. I just like her how she is. Callum, 8.

Chocolate. She sneaks into the cupboard to eat it. Rachel, 6.
Right now she’s on a diet, so her favourite food is salad and fruit and vegetables. Goldie, 9.
I think it’s chicken curry, but I don’t really know. Tiana, 7.

My jokes. Like, “What’s black and white and then black and white and laughing? A penguin and the penguin who pushed him.” Rachel, 6.
