And to mark Mother’s Day, we looked into the Sunderland Echo archives to find reminders of amazing mums and grandmothers through the years.
Take a look at these happy scenes from years gone by. The common denominator is they all celebrate the wonderful mums and grandmothers in your lives.
We hope our retro tribute brings back some lovely memories.
1. Serving up lunch in 2009
A special treat for Fiona Harnett when she was served lunch by her daughter Freja at Gillas Lane Primary School in Houghton in 2009.
2. That special bond
What a day in 2012! It was mother versus son football rivalry when ten year old Joseph Lennox played for St Mary's Primary school in the Sunderland Schools cup final against the team from Barnes Junior School which was coached by his mother Jeanette.

3. A 60s feel at Sunderland High Juniors
Back to 2006 where a 60s theme got support from mums and daughters at Sunderland High Junior School.
4. Spending valuable time with mum
A lovely mum and child scene from the Rhyme Group at Houghton Library in 2007. Can you spot someone you know?
