For Kids Paradise manager Alana Barker, Mother's Day always meant getting up early, and surprising her mum with some homemeade pancakes and a cup of tea.
But she suspects the experience was more fun for her and her five siblings than for her mother.
"I remember her telling us, years and years later, that she would drink the cup of tea, but she hated it," Mrs Barker laughed.
"That's how much she loved us. We would make her a really weak, milky tea - lukewarm - and she would like a really strong, hot cuppa.
"Even now we still giggle about it. We thought she loved it."
The day brings fond memories of climbing into bed along with her brothers and sisters and giving presents.
"Things like Mother's Day and Christmas and Easter - they're so special, when you're a kid," she said.
Now, her family are all in Victoria, so Mother's Day will be recognised with a phone call, before dinner at the Tailrace.
Her daughter, 24, will be working alongside her at the event.
"I really don't mind working on Mother's Day - it's just like a big party here," she said.
"At the Tailrace we just love to honour and bless mums and families.
"It's just a really lovely day to say thank you to mums for investing in their children's lives."
At Tailrace this week, Launceston mums and their children were sharing the love ahead of the big day on Sunday - with, as pictured, Brownyn Gibson with Isabelle, 7, and Benjamin, 4, Taylor Hunter with Tora Jones, 4, and Sarah Jordan-Ross with Harrison, 7, and Lachlan, 5.
