It’s Official: Parenting Is Harder for Moms Than Dads

I love my husband with all of my heart and soul but if there’s something I absolutely can’t stand, it’s seeing him taking a nap on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. While I completely understand that he’s tired and overworked after a long 50-60 hour work week, I just don’t get the same opportunity to snooze on the couch in the middle of the day. That’s mostly because there’s no way I could take a nap with my mind constantly buzzing and that there’s always something to do! I’m the kind of person that always has a long to-do list in my head and I won’t rest until everything gets done.

But with my husband, it’s a different story. Even though we share our schedule and appointments on iCal together, it’s me who takes the kids to the weekend birthday parties, play dates, and activities. As the Chief Operating Officer of my household, I have to make sure everyone is moving at an efficient speed.

And it seems like plenty of mothers out there can commiserate with me. In fact, there’s a new report that says parenting is way easier for dads than it is on moms and here’s why.
