Mother's Day is this Sunday so I hope all the Dads get the hint and treat the mother of your children, as well as your own mother to a bit of pampering. To be able to lie in and read the paper with a lovely hot cup of Earl Grey will be a good start for me.

But for anyone with more in mind, here are a few suggestions to make it a special day:

I haven't been here yet, but The Playhouse, set in a colonial bungalow, has two floors set up for free-play (unstructured, not free of charge!). The children are looked after by attentive staff which means the adults can enjoy a relaxed lunch at the Rochester Park Cafe, which is out in the garden. The ground floor of The Playhouse is designed for children up to around 7 years of age, and the second floor is dedicated to older kids and has computers and board games. Maya, being 10, has outgrown most play centres, so I will be interested to see if this one holds her attention.

On Sunday the second floor is closed from 9.30-11.30am for a private birthday party, and from 1pm kids over 4 years can join a Mother's Day card making sessions in the garden outside. So while you enjoy your lunch the kids can get creative and produce a mini art work. Each session is half an hour and costs S$7 per child.
7 Rochester Park, off North Buona Vista Road.

Original Sin, my favourite vegetarian restaurant in Singapore, will be giving a free glass of sparkling wine or a drink of their choice to mums all day on Sunday. If you haven't been yet, the food at Original Sin is always delicious, healthy and interesting, and even for meet lovers it is an excellent choice for a family meal.

If you visit The Polliwogs on Sunday all mothers will receive a free gift, while stocks last. Also, if you visit The Polliwogs this week (ending 9th May) with at least three children, each mummy in the group will receive a free drink of their choice. During weekdays the mums will receive a free smoothie or other drink, and over the weekend they can choose a can or bottled drink.
