but it's also the best and most rewarding. Maybe Mothers Month isn't even long enough.
Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 9, 2008
One day ... one stinking day? For all of you mothers out there, and you know who you are, one day of sleeping in, breakfast in bed, some flowers and a few well-meaning gifts just doesn't cut it.
Being a mom is like running a small corporation except that one person has all the titles and all the responsibilities. As a mom, you are often the CEO, the CFO, the director of transportation, the executive chef, line cook and waitress, wardrobe designer, groundskeeper, human resources director, facilities manager, janitor, and nurse.
Without a shot at getting four weeks vacation from all those jobs, social networking site ConnectingMoms.com has declared the entire month of May as Mothers Month.
"All moms are working moms," says ConnectingMoms.com co-founder and chief mom officer Shell Luba. "Whether that includes time at an outside job is beside the point. One job outside the home cannot come close to the total of responsibilities that every mom has in the home."
A previous research study documented that working moms spent 44 hours a week at their "work job" and just under 50 hours a week at their "mom job," a total of 94 hours per week while stay-at-home moms estimated working about 92 hours at the mom job.
In a poll conducted by ConnectingMoms for CNN last year, most women reported that the best gift their husbands could give them was simply a "day off". Since that would have to come from hubby, to celebrate Mothers Month, ConnectingMoms has partnered with the AdverGame Network in presenting a couple of fun and easy to play casual games that will be awarding truly useful prizes for both mother and child.
Along with mother-child bonding jewlery such as a Tiny Baubles Waiting Band, a necklace from Solstice Design Studio, game players can win a Terralina gift basket, a TinyLove Gymini® Monkey Island, BabyLegs protective clothing for crawling babies, an annual membership to SitterCity.com, Poppy Pouch nursing covers & baby carriers. Even though only 11% of the moms polled said they would want an electronic gift, they are sure to love the chance to get a handy Flip digital video camera and SanDisk Cruzer® Gator USB Flash Drives for saving and sharing family memories.
"Being a mom is the toughest job in the world," says Luba, "but it's also the best and most rewarding. Maybe Mothers Month isn't even long enough."
