"You Should've Asked": Have You Seen the Comic Showcasing the Mental Load of Moms? by Kim Kusiciel
A comic titled "You Should've Asked" has been flying all over the Internet. It depicts how some moms and dads carry the workload in their homes, but more importantly the "mental load." You may know what I am referring to:
- keeping that never-ending, always-growing list in your head regarding what your kids need
- the jelly you need to replenish
- the check you have to write for the class trip
- the form to fill out
- the "oh crap, I need to pay that bill"
And so ... much ... more. Regardless of your opinion on the comic, it's a wonderful conversation starter with your partner or your friends. It might be the springboard you need to discuss this topic if it resonates with you. It might not! Either way, it's garnishing quite a bit of attention and allowing moms to label what they feel.
