Everyone knows that moms are heroes, as it’s a job where you can’t just clock off at five, and you’re working every hour under the sun. But now research has confirmed what every mother knows – it’s actually more work than a full time job Fox News reports. 

A survey of 2,000 American moms of children aged five to 12 analyzed their weekly schedule. The study, conducted by juice company Welch’s, revealed that the average daily start time for a mom is 6:23am – much earlier than when most people start their working day.

Once she has finished all the tasks, whether they are career related or parenting, she ends her work at 8:31pm.

Not many jobs require a 14-hour working day, and most moms have to do this every day of the week. In total, that makes a mother’s working week a whopping 98 hours of work, or two and a half times more than the average job.

The survey also revealed that the average mom gets just one hour and seven minutes of time to herself every day – so little more than a lunch hour.
