The Working Mom’s ‘Mental Load’ Summed Up Perfectly in One Cartoon Strip


Often times, moms have to do all of the organizing and planning around the house.

This is true even though parenthood is supposed to be an equal partnership.

What is also true is that a lot of working moms do not think that their husbands or significant others pull their fair share of work around the house and with the children.

This means that mothers have to do their share of the household chores and organize what everyone else, including their “partner” has to do as well.

This burden is called the “mental load,” and is very familiar to many moms around the world.

A French cartoonist who goes by the single name of  Emma crafted the perfect strip called “You Should’ve Asked” which explains the concept perfectly!

We’ve syndicated the first few strips below but can see the rest here at Working Mother which summarized the beginning:

“The comic starts out with a quick story of an overworked mom who had to cook while tending to her child at a dinner party. Eventually things get out of hand as the mom attempts to handle everything herself. Her husband then says he would have helped out if she had only asked him to. The comic goes on to explain that husbands shouldn’t have to be asked to step up and that moms shouldn’t be solely responsible for directing them and planning everything.”
