WHY MOTHER’S DAY SHOULD BE A ‘DAY OFF’May 13, 2018
If you’re a mom, you don’t have to be told that motherhood is hard work. But a new study says that motherhood isn’t a full-time job — It’s way more than that.
According to the researchers, the average day of a mom in America starts at 6:33 a.m. and doesn’t stop until 8:31 p.m. That’s a 14-hour shift, and being a mom is a 7-day-a-week commitment. In other words, being a mom is equivalent to having two and a half full-time jobs!
But if you’re a mom, you don’t need us to tell you that what you need is a break. That’s why we say, this Mother’s Day, it’s time for a day off.
That means no sweeping, no dusting, no dishes, and definitely no laundry, no matter how much juice has been spilled. Trash need to be taken out? Uh-uh. It’s Mother’s Day.
Somebody needs their soccer jersey washed? Not on Mother’s Day they don’t.
Mud tracked in all over the house? It’ll still be there Monday — after Mother’s Day.
And if anyone complains, you tell them that being a mom might be two and a half jobs in one, but Mother’s Day, you’re putting your feet up.
