Mother's Day is coming up and your favorite Mommy Domme thought She'd give some tips out there to all of the dads on the DL.
See that meme up there? There's a reason that stereotypical joke is so popular. Frequently on a day of celebration, the focus is on the here and now. You make breakfast for the family, maybe a nice dinner, keep the kids entertained, take on a little bit of the domestic duties for the day. "Relax, Honey, I'll take care of it. It's your special day!" But what about tomorrow? What about...the day after Mother's Day? That day is woefully ignored as the men pat themselves on the back for running the household for one day as Mom comes to pick up the pieces of Mother's Day aftermath.
While treating mom, try to think of what would make her really happy. Most housewives work the equivalent of 2.5 full time jobs and would love a break, not just breakfast. Yes, that meal was delicious, but you know what would be a fabulous end to it? Doing the dishes. Chances are, when you started cooking that morning, you had a clean space to work--doesn't she deserve the same? If you walked into your office and found that you were starting your day with a double workload courtesy of your coworker, you would be quite upset. It's great that you kept the kids alive and spent some quality time with them, but now that they're in bed, take a look around. Besides the quiet, what have you left her with? Spilled drinks, sandwich crumbs, sticky smears, dirty dishes, and piles of laundry?
If you don't want to attempt to take over your spouse's chores, try to keep the kids out of the house for the day. Chances are, mom will appreciate the quiet seeing as most mothers only get just over an hour to themselves a day. An easy way to avoid doing the dishes? Go out for meals or use paper plates. Bonus points if you use this "extra" cleanup time to do a chore that mom would otherwise have to do, such as mopping the floor or cleaning the bathroom.
A mother "works" an estimated 98 hours a week, is worth $162,000 annually, and all without a vacation (mothers don't get vacations as the work comes with them). If you're trying to give mom a break, make sure your "gift" doesn't break her the next day. Step into mom's workplace like you would a national park--leave it better than you found it.
