We’ve got lists. Endless lists. Just when we think we’ve checked all the boxes, it’s a new day and we start all over again.
Being a Mom, it’s the hardest job there is.
Paycheck? Not so great. We cook, clean, drive, and drive some more, we’re essentially free slaves for our children. I love my 3 boys, but I’m here to say, it ain’t easy being a Mom!
Recently, one of my friends (who is also hilarious) had her first child. She was a bit blindsided as to how much work this thing called Motherhood is and posted this chore chart to Instagram. I couldn’t stop laughing!
Wife: Hey Honey, how was your day?
Husband: Busy! I closed 2 deals, took clients to lunch and I was nominated for Employee of the Year! It was great.
Wife: Well, I was lucky enough to wash all the linens today! I visited with the grocery store clerk on aisle 8 and when the kids came home from school, they greeted me with hugs and said I was the greatest mom of all time after I served them cookies and milk! I loved it.
Mom’s deserve to be rewarded!
Our Free 5×7 Downloadable Chore Chart for Mom’s offer’s a great incentive program. Once our chores have been completed, we reward ourselves (because nobody else is gonna!). Whether it be as simple as a nap, a pedicure, a lunch date with a friend, or a trip to the Bahama’s- a little incentive can go a long way!
What about Mom’s who also work outside the home? Double the chores, double the rewards!
Download and fill out your chore chart. Next time you’re asked how your day was, hand over the chart and pat yourself on the back! You’re a mom, you’ve got the hardest job in the world.
You deserve that nap.
