MUM’S THE WORD: Kim Waiter never knows what her 10 children Samantha, Molly, Angus, Fearghus, Siobhan, Ruari, Ethan and Robert (absent Alexandria and Hamish) have planned for her on Mother’s Day.

MUM’S THE WORD: Kim Waiter never knows what her 10 children Samantha, Molly, Angus, Fearghus, Siobhan, Ruari, Ethan and Robert (absent Alexandria and Hamish) have planned for her on Mother’s Day.

KIM Waiter has enough jewellery made from macaroni to last a lifetime.

And the mother of 10 wouldn’t have it any other way.

Mother’s Day in the Waiters’ West Nowra home is a bigger deal than most.

Spend some time with these children and it’s clear they understand what a wonderful job their mother has done raising them.

Mrs Waiter considered Mother’s Day as being 10 times more special than any other day.

“The best bit is the little treasures that come home,” she said.

“You know, the stuff they lovingly make for their mum at school.

“Although it’s just enough being with my kids on that day,” she said.

Her 19-year-old daughter Molly said the day was a chance for her and her siblings to give something back to their mother.

“When we were little we all wanted to make her breakfast in bed. I remember she had about five cups of tea lined up,” she said.

“Now we’re a bit older we all pitch in so she can take it easy for a bit.”

Samantha (22) said her mother was “very understanding and patient.”

“We are taking her out for breakfast on Mother’s Day and we’ve got her one of those giant cards from all of us.”
