In the month of May, we celebrate mothers. We honor moms with flowers, words of love, dinner or something else to make her feel special. Today is Lazy Mom’s Day. Frankly I believe this is how we should be celebrating moms. Give her a day to be totally lazy. Let her experience the feeling of not having to get out of bed, make breakfast, get the kids off to school, fold the laundry, pack lunches, plan dinner and get herself ready for work. All of this occurring before 8 AM.
Moms, take a look at your house. Is it the perfection of Pinterest? Is everything in its place? Does every sock have a matching one? Is your sink empty of dirty dishes? Do you spend the rest of your day thumbing through fashion magazines and eating chocolates? If this is the case, most likely you have a nanny working for you. You also have someone who comes in and cleans your house on a daily basis – a personal shopper, a chef, groceries delivered to your door and an event planner. To top it off, you must have a chauffeur, an accountant, a beauty consultant and an abundance of energy.
The fact that moms are only honored on one day a year is really disgraceful. They should be held in high esteem – right alongside dads – even when we don’t agree with them. I love the idea of a lazy mom’s day.
Everyone should be entitled to a day of complete laziness – a time where we have no one to answer to, no obligations, just a day to do nothing. Today also happens to be “buy a book day” as well as “beer lover’s day.” Somehow they seem to go hand in hand.
