Duties of Motherhood

Readers Sound Off on the Responsibilities They'd Give Up!

Mom's to-do list never seems to end. When we asked our readers which responsibilities they would farm out if they could, the responses came in. Though Facebook fan Jennifer Combs-Geiger said she wouldn't change a thing, "Kids are only little once so I'm going to enjoy every moment while it lasts," others were quick to give up a job or two!

  • Laundry: From an Anonymous reader who said she doesn't "mind putting it in the wash, but I hate switching loads, folding and putting it away!" to Facebook fan Laura Bovington, mamas seem overloaded with dirty clothes.
  • Cleaning: Carri was quick to say, "See ya later, toilet scrubbing!" And many of us couldn't agree more!
  • Potty Training: Giving up diapers for good has never been an easy task. Twitter follower smartypantzed said she'd gladly give up "wiping my [newly potty trained] son's bum," while Facebook fans Audrey O'Donnell Nunez and Sarah Z Siddiqui also mentioned the toddler duty.
  • Cooking: Facebook fan Pallavi Thakur Dinesh would be happy to have help "Cooking delicious healthy food that everyone will eat!"
  • Diaper Duty: While some mamas aren't anticipating the messes that come with potty training, others are ready to give up changing the diapers. strollerdiva said, "I would definitely let someone else change the diapers!"
