5 Reasons Moms Deserve a Month Instead of a Day

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and people everywhere are making plans to celebrate their moms next Sunday—and this is great! But I’m going to be honest with you: A day to celebrate Mom just isn’t enough.

Motherhood is hard. Easily the hardest job I’ve ever had. As much as I love my four kids, being their mom, mommy, mother or personal ATM (and taxi driver) can be exhausting.

That’s why I love the fact that Coupons.com is celebrating moms all month long, giving away amazing prizes (something new every week!), wads of cash and lots of great tips and inspiration here on our blog. Stay tuned, this is going to be a wild ride.

Some might ask, really? Do moms really need a whole month?

To that I say, yes! A month-long celebration is nothing. Here are my top 5 reasons that moms everywhere deserve 31 days instead of just 1.

1. Bringing a child into the world takes a good nine months—complete with nausea, stretch marks, fatigue, hormonal fluctuations and, of course, watching your belly stretch in ways you never imagined. The end result is worth it, of course. But it’s a nine-month long journey of twists and turns. Please. A month of celebrating that journey is easily deserved.

2. Some of the most selfless people I know are moms who would never ask for a coffee break, a day off, a vacation from motherhood (is there such a thing?), or really anything for themselves. It’s high time we paid them back with more than just brunch on Sunday.

3. There is no job description for the role of “mom,” and it’s stressful trying to make it all up as you go. Just the fact that most moms are improvising along the way—and trying to do the best job they can—is worthy of a month of accolades.

4. Did you ever throw temper tantrums in the grocery store as a toddler? Trash your mom’s car with crackers, gummy bears, juice boxes and Skittles? Draw on a wall with a Sharpie? Stain her carpet with a variety of hard-to-get-out substances? Come in past curfew and make her lay in bed awake with worry? ‘Nuff said.

5. Motherhood lasts forever. Once you become a mom, you never “un-become” one, unlike other jobs and roles you may take on in a lifetime. I can’t imagine a mom who doesn’t cherish the fact that she’s been given this privilege. But in light of forever, one month is a drop in the bucket.

Now you can celebrate your mom all month long with our #SuperheroMom Giveaway! You could win her a really cool prize or maybe a little extra spending money.

  1. Certainly a whole month would be welcome. However it would be still filled with dirty dishes, laundry, and screaming kids.

  2. I could not agree more – being a mother is the hardest job there is – a month long celebration is absolutely deserved!

  3. Great giveaway! We should celebrate ourselves and our loved ones every day, not just once a year. Little bits of love & hilarity from my boys every day far surpass any once a year Mother’s Day card or gift.

  4. My mom has literally supported me in nearly every way possible for the majority of my life, with tenderness, understanding and love. Moms deserve the world… considering they raised it. :)

  5. Being a mom is the best job in the world,but it definitely is exhausting, difficult, and under appreciated sometimes. I would like to say a BIG thank you to my mom. I hope my little ones understand all I do for them one day.

  6. Love all that my mom does for me – I appreciate her so much more as I get older and realize all the sacrifices she made!

  7. I absolutely agree that being a mother is the hardest job. It’s a 24/7 hr gig but I wouldn’t trade it for anything! Thanks coupons.com for celebrating us!

  8. A month is about 0ne tenth of a year. And that’s a respectable ratio of time to give back to our mothers.

  9. Mom’s may deserve a month off, but I know that mine never would have been able to relax and do nothing for a month! She is always doing something for someone-it’s not in her nature to sit and watch things happening!

  10. Lovin’ #5… Motherhood is forever and can’t be undone! I think mom’s should just get a bit more credit throughout the whole year, motherhood is tough!

  11. I agree. A month would be appropriate for sure! We throw a party every Mother’s Day for my MIL. She’s great!

  12. I agree!! Mom’s definitely deserve a month instead of a day! they do so much for us, I don’t even think we realize how much most of the time!

  13. i love to get my mom presents that relate to something she taught me. for example, she taught me how to cook and so i love to get her herb gardens and fancy cooking oils to show her how much of an influence she had on me. thanks for the giveaway!

  14. My mom is no longer living but I learned from her what it is to throw everything you are into being a great mother. It’s the greatest adventure ever!

  15. I totally agree with this, and can only wish I had an entire month to honor my Mom for being the amazing Mother she’s been – and to take extra time to enjoy my own children!

  16. I could not agree more! I’m not a mother but I’m 21 now and I hang around the house a lot and all I do is try to take care of the house and the dogs – there’s no way I could imagine trying to support my sister and I for the whole 19-21 years we’ve been alive. All the work that goes into being a parent is super crazy and I really appreciate and respect my mom for it, especially being a single parent even if she had HER parents’ support.

  17. Definitely! We wouldn’t all be here today without our mommas that raised us to help us become who we are today! Great giveaway too!

  18. I completely agree! I’ve always thought my mom is amazing, but I didn’t realize how amazing she is until I had kids of my own. Moms definitely are superheroes!!

  19. My greatest joy is my 26 year old son Christopher. I love that kid more than words can say and you are right, motherhood never ends, seems all I can think of always, is “What can I do to help him, how can I make his life easier before my time on this earth is over.” Thanks for the wonderful giveaway with all of the nice prizes. Oh, and yes, Mother’s deserve a month or even two! :)

  20. This is awesome, thank you for doing these giveaways! Being a mom is definitely hard work but oh so rewarding!

  21. I agree, mothers deserve to be spoiled more than one day a year! Here’s to us spending a little more time loving on our mommas. :)

  22. Love #3! The duties of a mom are ever changing day to day, but all of them are necessary to raising these little people we love so much! .

  23. What a great giveaway to celebrate and honor Mom’s. I love being a mother and also know how hard it can be, this is well deserved:)

  24. Agreed! Love and appreciate my mom! Smartest woman I know. I’m gleaning her wisdom and knowledge as much as I can everyday.

  25. Is it wrong that I think 365 days a year should be Mother’s Day? Out of all the moms I know (I’m a mom also) and really we never have a day off even on date nights/girls nights the kiddos are still on their mind (I know I’m always worried and thinking about my kiddo instead of having a fun night out).

  26. I live everyday for my kids and as they get older I am starting to get it in return from them. Motherhood is the most challenging and rewarding thing we women can accomplish. God Bless us, our kids, and all those that chip in and help!

  27. Hoping to win the C Wonder giftcard! I would purchase the ikat plates for mothers day because they are so unique, just like my mom :-)

  28. Thank you coupons.com for the appreciation we mothers sometimes do not get . Thank you also for all the great deals you share to help us save money.

  29. I love being a mommy, but you are so right a month of pampering would be wonderful! But it is by far the most rewarding and worth while thing I have ever done. Even the mistake and crazy moments top any moment before I was a mom. Your giveaway looks amazing I pray some woman (if it was me even better) would be truly blessed by the gift.

  30. I have read a few excellent stuff here. Definitely value bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how a lot effort you place to make such a wonderful informative site.
