If you had to list out the most tireless and thankless jobs, Mom would have to be towards the top. From the day they start ‘on the job’ a mom’s duties are pretty much 24/7. There is little time for lunch breaks, sick days or vacation, there is no pension, 401K or retirement plan. Simply put, the job of a mom is one of the toughest.
It got me thinking about my own wife and the mom of my three (or four because she likes to include me) children. Not only is she the CEO of the house, she provides countess hours volunteering with a variety of charities, is the room mom at the school, serves as the manager of a rock band Audioroad in Austin, Texas, and is skilled with a shovel in the yard. Tonight after a particularly busy day with sporting events, meetings, school functions and a tick list at the house, she was spent. Yet at 9:30 in the evening, she borrowed a neighbors truck and took a washer and dryer that was donated clear across town to help out the drummer of the aforementioned rock band who just moved into his first house. She did not get time and a half, she wasn’t given the following day off and she did it all with a smile on her face. So I would like to nominate my wife as the employee of the month and raise the level of respect and due justice for moms everywhere with this little video that really drives home the point. It comes compliments of Mullen, an ad firm out of Boston. It is brilliant. Thank you for all you do mom(s)!
