Ever notice the line up of Mother’s Day cards in the shops can be all too stereotypical? Lovely though they are, the soft designs of the floral and heart covered cards belie the strength of the mums we buy them for. Come Father’s Day the shelves will be lined with cards proclaiming our dads as our heroes and – while this may be true – our mums are heroes too.
To redress the balance this week at Millbrook Beds we’re devoting this blog to ideas for a hero’s breakfast to help demonstrate something more meaningful to your mum on Mother’s Day than a flowery card. And, with ideas that kids of all ages can get involved with, let’s show mum what having her as our hero really means to us.
