If you’re a mum and you’re exhausted – it’s cause you’re working the equivalent of 2.5 full-time jobs.

A survey of 2,000 American mums has found their average day goes from 6:33 a.m. to 8:31 p.m – that’s seven days a week!

Add it up and it comes to 98 hours of work per week, and there's not much room for free time.

Mums surveyed say they get, on average, one hour of time to themselves.

Wine, babysitters and drive-thru snacks are what they say get them through the day.
