Did you get the flowers yet? The brunch reservations? Ready to tell mom how much you love her?

Mother’s Day is a big deal, but this year it’s a bit different. This is the first Mother’s Day in a long time where your mom doesn’t like being at home as much.

A recent study by the Pew Research Center shows more working mothers now prefer full-time work. At 37%, it’s almost double the amount since 2007.

The survey suggests more woman want to work because of the great recession.

Do you agree with that?

Well, I have two thoughts.  Maybe more moms want to leave home during the day because the only socializing with their kids is on their phones.

Admit it, how many times have you seen a family at a restaurant and everyone is down– looking at their phones!

That’s the cynical view to this growing mother’s way!

Here’s the rational view why mom would rather work than be home: there’s no job tougher than being a stay-at-home mom.

Maybe that’s why mom wants to get a break and work for a living.
