Is it teething time for your little one?


We mums should get a medal for what we manage to achieve in a single day, but it usually comes at a price – our own down-time and, in extreme cases, our sanity!


There are some days when all we need is some time off, but it seems impossible to fit in our favourite TV show or a 20-minute power-nap when there is something to do for the family.


Well, the ladies at The BreakWomb have come up with a failsafe solution to guarantee time off for us hard-working mums – and the struggle of being a mum is summed up by just how extreme it is!


In this tongue-in-cheek video, this mum comes to the conclusion that all she needs to do to get her partner to do the cooking, the chores, and the drop-offs and collections, is to render herself physically unable to leave the couch with an injury.


Indeed, so seemingly idyllic is this mum’s recuperation period (a fellow mum even offers to make her baked goods for a school event), that her friends will try just about anything to pull off a little ligament damage of their own!


This is hilarious, and it also proves just how much we achieve in a given day.



SHARE to give a fellow hard-working mum a good giggle.
