Happy Mother's Day!
Did you know that moms wear the most hats? Yes, we are an awesome bunch. We are the world's best chauffeurs, talented chefs stirring up healthy meals, life saving nurses on duty at all times, tutors and educators of all subjects, planners for any occasion, and not to mention negotiators, controllers and operators. Yes, a mom's job is the most challenging job of them all! Who can't agree? So let's celebrate MOMS! NJ KIDS has lots of ideas to help you plan for this weekend. Please explore through our list of ideas. We hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day week
