Moms work hard all year long caring for their children. They cook and clean, help with homework, chauffeur kids to various activities, wash clothes, take care of the scrapes and cuts that all kid’s manage to get on any given day, sooth emotional wounds, attend dance class recitals, cheer leading exhibitions, gymnastics events, girl and/or boy scout meetings, school plays and parent/teacher conferences. They often have to shuffle between work and child care. One day a year, it’s Mom’s turn to be pampered. Although we love her all year, today she is Queen for a Day.
