ROBYN Pierce does not need a special day to be acknowledged for what she does for her family.
She sees her family as a blessing and she counts herself lucky everyday she has them to share her life with.
With four children aged between 17 and 10, Mrs Pierce knows most things about motherhood.
“Once they get to 17 they talk to you more like you’re a person , rather than ‘what can you do for me’,” she said.
She said the most difficult part of raising four children, and teenagers, was having efficient time management.
Everything had to be drawn up down to the second in order to ensure everyone arrived at school, at work and at sporting events on time.
She said she would spend Sunday visiting her own mother.
Mrs Pierce’s son Matthew said Mother’s Day was about making sure mum knew how important she was to the family.
“She helps me do stuff and she does the washing,” he said.
He said he would show his appreciation for the number one woman in his life by attempting to make his mum breakfast “or something”.
Mrs pierce and her family attended the Orange Christian School Mother’s Day breakfast at the school on yesterday morning and watched the students’ recorded messages to their mums.
From “because she gives me cuddles” to “she’s very good at making my lunch” and “my mum is the best mum in the world”, the reasons why mums were so special made even the most stoic of dads’ lips wobble.
