The Lady from Mount Maunganui Joggers & Walkers Club
On my first cafe outing with my 8 week old son Jaxon, I had just been served my breakfast and hot chocolate when he started becoming unsettled and needed a feed. I began breastfeeding him and then noticed a lady coming towards us. I thought she was going to tell me to cover up, but instead the kind lady started cutting up my breakfast in pieces so that I could eat one-handed, without it getting cold.
She said to me “what a good mama you are, we can’t have your food getting cold can we?”
I shared this experience on Facebook and within 2 days it had gone all around the world, with news agencies picking up the story.
I was so surprised and in complete awe of her that I forgot to ask her name. I just thanked her over and over again, she just walked off like it was nothing.
