Mom Really Wishes You’d Stop Serving Her Breakfast in Bed
I'm not much of a breakfast eater, but you know what? If somebody wants to make breakfast for me, serve it to me, and clean up afterward- I'm all in!!
While I'd be ecstatic to stay snuggled under the covers in my pajamas and be served breakfast in bed this Mother's Day, it would appear that I'm in the minority. Only a teeny, tiny four percent of moms say that they genuinely look forward to being treated to breakfast from the comfort of their own bed on Mother's Day. Say what?!?
Zagat conducted a survey of moms and 54 percent of moms fessed up that they "loathe" being served breakfast in bed and what they'd like much more if to be treated to a meal anywhere but at home. While a massive number of moms say "no thanks" to breakfast in bed, the meal that most moms want to be taken out to is brunch. 39 percent of moms say they'd like to be treated to brunch with their family.
Do you think it's strange that mom dreads the thought of being served breakfast in bed but really wants to go out for brunch? I found it was odd too until I thought more about it. Here's my theory: no good intention goes unpunished.
I think that there's a fear among moms that even though we're told not to worry about cooking or cleaning on our day, we know the truth. The truth is that once we set foot in the kitchen we're going to see the disaster that happened while breakfast was being made. Things aren't going to be cleaned or put away to our standards and when there's a mess, we feel burdened with having to clean and straighten things and that's now what we're supposed to be doing on our day. No? Only in my house? Ha!
