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.
