Why dont mothers get snow days?

These kids have been home all week from school due to the weather.. They get no homework just lots of free time..Dad has also been home, no work just sitting on the couch watching tv telling the kids to go ask mom...

Mom has been cooking 3x a day, washing clothes, cleaning bathrooms, tending to the kids and dad...When do I get a snow day? Hell do I have to go outside to get free time...Im just asking...

  • tell hubby to get up off his ass and help with HIS kids. tell your kids to clean up THEIR rooms.
    as for too much free time, tell them they have a mandatory two hour reading time...depending on the age....if too young to read, two hour coloring time!
    i feel you, i wasn't happy during our sinter break.......these things helped ease the tention.......

  • Hell, we dont get sick days either! This moms' union sucks! But seriously- did you ask hubby if he'd take the kids sledding or outside to play to get you a little break? It is not our soul purpose in life to serve our families. We need breaks & time for ourselves too.

  • @ mrsmom110 you know he is normally really good with this kind of thing, he normally helps around the house and everything...I have no idea whats is going on, maybe the snow has got him crazy
