Happy Mothers Day! 20 things Mums do on the other 364 days to deserve a day off!

Here at Kowalah we're wishing all the wonderful Mums out there a brilliant and well deserved Happy Mother's Day.  We appreciate all that you do for your families every day of the year:

  1. Trying to match a pile of 319 socks
  2. Preparing multiple outfits for World Book Day
  3. Remembering long division (with a little bit of help from Google?)
  4. Breathing deeply when the contents of a games bag have disappeared
  5. Building a scale model of a Roman villa
  6. Having your clothes stolen by your eldest daughter
  7. Enjoying "Arts and Crafts" 
  8. Standing on the snowy sidelines of a sports field
  9. Finding glue on the kitchen floor
  10. Driving a dustbin for a car
  11. Accepting that the answer to any question will be "Not Me!"
  12. Glitter
  13. Encouraging 'cooking' even if it looks like a science experiment
  14. Watching the never-ending "show"
  15. Dealing with the devil that comes back after a sleep over
  16. Cutting other people's toe-nails
  17. Finding homework assingments in the school bag at 7.45am
  18. Balancing "Go and play outside!" with "Get back in here NOW!"
  19. Washing, washing, washing, washing.........always washing
  20. And finally, having to organise childcare for your own surprise night out

It's amazing what you do, and today we remind all dads that no longer do mums have the monopoly on organising childcare or babysitting.  With Kowalah dads can easily find, book and pay for trusted safe childcare, allowing you to surprise and wow your hard working and deserving lady with an evening out on any day of the year.

Mums, enjoy your day off.  What other 'tasks' would you add to the list?!
