National Lazy Mom’s Day

All year long, moms work their fingers to the bone to ensure that their families are well taken care of. Some head to work every day to bring in the family’s income, while others work at home to keep everything in order. And she does it without pausing for special occasions or holidays. Maybe that should change.

Perhaps she deserves a special day of her own where she can kick up her feet and allow her family to take care of her for a change. Fortunately, someone invented such a holiday, and it’s known as National Lazy Mom’s Day. This holiday is observed annually on September 2nd and encourages every mom in the country to take a day off.
