Moms Prefer Maid to Personal Trainer!

Mother’s Day is coming up (May 13) and it will be bittersweet for those of us who have recently lost our Moms.  It’s been a little more than a year since my mom passed and I still get the urge to call her up and share family news and personal challenges and accomplishments.  I suppose I always will.  One thing my mom never did was judge…and believe me there were plenty of opportunities!  She was always a calm cool resource who steered me back to “make my own choices and live with the consequences.  A recent  Lifetime poll asked women how good were their own mothers at giving advice? More than 30% said parenting tips were the best advice they ever received, but nearly as many (28.4%) said their mother was “horrible at giving advice”.

To be honest there were a few time when I wanted more specific advice.  I guess I’m not alone!  Still miss ya mom!

  Among other poll findings:

  • Far and away (58.9%), the one chore women would gladly surrender is cleaning the house.
  • Twice as many women (42.9% vs. 21.3%) would rather have a maid than a personal trainer.
  • Paul Simon’s “Mother and Child Reunion” was the best song with the word “mom” in the title over Willie Nelson’s “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys.”
  • More than a quarter of the women (26.1%) were glad they didn’t inherit their mother’s neuroses, followed by fashion sense (18.7%) and physique (9.7%).
