I see so many advertisements saying give mom a spa day or some other "break" for mother's day. As a working mom, I want more time with my kids on mother's day.

Do you want the break or quality time this mother's day? Do you think there is a difference in what working moms want versus those that don't work?

I would take the break... while as a working mom I think I should want more time with the kids, but sometime to myself with no one needing me sounds beautiful

I've always been a working mom but I want the break. I got the break last year - was nice but I felt guilty afterwards. Just can't win.

That is completely understandable!!! Do you have plans this mothers day?

So true. We never win as moms, do we?

No, no plans. I was thinking of driving to see my mother as a surprise. But other than that, nothing special.

Quality time, with no house work or cooking involved.  I would like to be able to just spend a day playing in the yard without worrying about missing income or the house going to chaos.  I shall instead spend Mother's Day like always, and at my in laws to boot.  Fun times.

Since I will be with my kids on Mother's Day, I will take the spa day as a gift for another day when I need a break.  Being working moms it is nice to take a break from everything once in awhile.
