If Moms Ruled the World

...There would be a designated lane on the highway called "The Mom Lane" in which there were no pot holes to jostle a sleeping baby awake, it's sound proof to avoid obnoxious horns, and the speed limit is like 15 mph to ensure that you can drive slow enough to make sure that baby gets a long enough nap.

...Maternity leave would be 3 years, fully paid instead of 3 months or 6 weeks if you're a teacher like me.  Being a mother would mean you were valued at work, not lessened.  I mean really, being a mom has a certain built in skill set: organization, delegation, creativity, and routine.

...There would be days built into the work year that you had to take off: recitals, holiday shows, school functions,  doctors appointments, and report cards.  No need for an uncomfortable conversation with your boss, the day is just yours,

...If you have a crying baby or a squirming toddler (or both) you skip right to the front of the line at the post office/grocery store/drug store/clothes store etc.  Anyone failing to allow you to cut to the front of the line will receive life imprisonment because there's nothing worse than that.

...Anyone who gives you and/or your tantrum throwing child the stink eye will lose said eye.

...High quality day care would be completely free.

...Stay at home moms would be compensated for "staying" at home.  Which means they would get paid for cooking, driving, cleaning, crafting, and filling the day with fun activities for kids with the attention span of a fruit fly on its death bed.

...Kids would be appreciative of all of our sacrifices and love or else they would find themselves in some sort of detention or containment camp.

...Our children would love us half as much as we love them.

Move over Obama, I think we need a mom in office.

I would also like to have a getting to work late grace period for all those morning when you have to stop by the store on the way to school cause someone only remembered on the way to school that they needed some obscure thing which you don't keep at home

You have my vote!
