Mum’s the word

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

My mum is ev­ery­thing. A lis­tener, helper, cook, cleaner, chauf­feuse, doc­tor, nurse, teacher, ther­a­pist, friend and so much more. Only now, as a par­ent my­self, do I fully ap­pre­ci­ate the time and ef­fort that she sac­ri­ficed for her own chil­dren — and there are six of us! Be­com­ing a mother was a big turn­ing point in my life, I was sud­denly re­spon­si­ble for this lit­tle be­ing and it was ter­ri­fy­ing, I leaned on my mother’s ad­vice even with my own kids. Though we all swear never to turn into our moth­ers, I be­lieve we all reach an age when not only do we sud­denly re­alise how won­der­ful our own is, but how we’re slowly mor­ph­ing into a younger ver­sion of her. As part of a new gen­er­a­tion of strong ca­pa­ble women who man­age to jug­gle work and home life, we all de­serve to treat our­selves this Mother’s Day. You may not get the op­por­tu­nity to go on a spon­ta­neous spa break, but you could and should make some “me” time this Mother’s Day to pat your­selves on the back and give your­self the recog­ni­tion you de­serve for be­ing a truly won­der­ful mum.

Happy Mother’s Day, fel­low mum­mies!
