It’s that time of year again. The one day where mothers get a lie in, a card, and, if we’re lucky, a cup of tea in bed to say thanks for all the work that we do.
I look forward to Mother’s Day as much as any other overworked mum. However, the sentimentality of the day can be a little cloying. Amid the avalanche of flowers and soppy cards, it’s important to remember that motherhood isn’t all hearts and teddy bears.
