A new study found the average mom still does a lot more housework than dads do. I know how SHOCKED you must be right now.
The average mom does 8 hours and 12 minutes of cleaning a week, compared to just 4 hours and 48 minutes for dads.
Moms also average 5 hours and 54 minutes of laundry, while dads spend about 4 hours on it.
And the average mom does 8 hours and 48 minutes of cooking each week compared to about 6 hours for dads. Which is actually more than we expected.
The survey also found 78% of us are buying a Mother’s Day gift this year. Here are four more stats about what we’ve got planned . . .
1. 80% of us are planning a special meal. About half are going to a restaurant.
2. 74% of moms will get a Mother’s Day phone call. About two-thirds will get a text. So a lot of moms will get both.
3. Only 50% of moms expect to get a card for Mother’s Day this year.
4. Just 16% of moms said they’re planning to treat THEMSELVES to something nice.
