National Lazy Mom's Day - First Friday in September

  •  

NATIONAL LAZY MOM’S DAY

During the first Friday in September, National Lazy Mom’s Day delegates everyday mom jobs to someone else.

Busy moms know that the work of being a parent is never done. However, occasionally parents need to recharge. The laundry and the dishes will be there later. When possible, finding someone to watch the children for a few hours is worth it. Sometimes all a mom needs is a nap. Other times, mothers (and fathers too) seek adult conversation.

Even though moms around the country view this day in different ways, the majority see it as a day for moms to take a break. While the occasion holds no shine to Mother’s Day, may we suggest some cooperation with Mom? Allow her to take a break. Divide the chores. Place a moratorium on family feuds. That’s how most celebrate this National Day.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalLazyMomsDay

You don’t have to celebrate like most moms do, however. Maybe it is a hammock and book kind of day for your lazy afternoon. Help mom celebrate this holiday by cleaning up after yourself. Rub her feet. Walk the dog. Mow the lawn. Put the dishes away. Pick up your dirty clothes. The list goes on.

Use #NationalLazyMomsDay to post on social media.

2020 Detroit Mom-Approved Summer Camp Guide #motownmom

Welcome to the 2020 Detroit Mom-Approved Summer Camp Guide! It can be hard to get our heads around the fact that summertime will be arriving in Detroit soon. Well, it is time to start planning for a summer full of fun. Let’s be honest, as much as our kids deserve to go to summer camp, we deserve to send them.

We know that summer camps are at the top of the list of things moms need to figure out early. While summer makes us think of popsicles, parks, and festivals we KNOW as moms that it can also be a frustrating time where you are struggling to piece childcare together week by week and month by month. From Art to Tech, Theatre to Cooking, Sports to STEM and plenty in between, we hope this Mom-Approved Summer Camp Guide in around Detroit makes planning a little less stressful and allows for a memorable summer, full of exploring and new experiences!
