Mom’s need to take a Weekend off…with the Mazda CX-9

Motherhood is a 24 hour job! There is no time off. No break. No overtime. Just Mom-all-the-time. I don’t have to remind you just how many hats we moms wear in a week…Chef, Maid, Chauffeur, Cheerleader, Nurse… and so on and so forth… It’s a lot, but we love it!
