National Lazy Mom’s Day

All year long, moms work their fingers to the bone to make sure that their families are taken care of. Some of them head to work every day to bring in the family’s cash, and others work in the home making sure everything is in order. And she does it without stopping for special occasions or holidays. Maybe that should change.

Perhaps she should get a special day of her own where she kicks up her feet and allows her family to take care of her for a change. Fortunately, someone invented that 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.
