Mums are superheroes. This year has been tricky for everyone, but many of us have relied on our mums to get us through it. Whether that’s been advice (like calling your mum panicking because you have a sore throat!) or maybe she’s been your teacher for the last few months while schools have been shut. Perhaps your friend has just become a new mum, pregnancy and motherhood can be a happy but nervous time and going through that during a global pandemic is incredible. All mums deserve to be treated.
