As a white Mom of three black children, it is so important that I know how to care for my kids’ hair. It’s been fun learning and I’ve got a way to go, but that scene in Grey’s Anatomy where Bailey gives McDreamy a (very) hard time for bringing Zola to school with unkempt hair haunts me to action. I don’t want to be THAT Mom!

Have you been to Franky’s Diner? You can win an experience with Heart Mama Blog

Cape Town Moms, this place is a a well kept secret. If you haven’t already discovered Franky’s Diner in Sea Point, let me tell you about this treasure – you can get comfortable in a red leather booth, sip on a speciality milkshake (or a glass of wine) and watch the kids run wild in the fantastic play area. And kids eat for FREE on Mondays to Thursdays between 12pm and 8pm. What’s not to love?

We were feeling brave and so ventured out with the three little ones for a Friday night adventure to Franky’s Diner in Main Rd Sea Point last. We may have arrived 45 minutes behind schedule in the middle of load shedding with a handful of hangry kids, but all was redeemed when the kids saw the play area and balloons. We plonked ourselves down in the booth closest to the play area and ordered some drinks and food for the kids. The kids’ food arrived so quickly and Ilan’s bubblegum milkshake seriously saved the day.
