If you give a mom a vacation

An homage to our favorite series If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

If you give a mom a vacation she may pack a bag (quickly). When she packs her bag she may see worried looks on the faces of her children (how will we eat, will we have clean clothes). When she sees worried looks she may pack faster and assure them their father will take good care if them.

When mom arrives at her destination (some place warm with adult drinks and no kids) she may receive a text from her husband. If she receives a text she may have visions. If she has visions they may include dishes piled up, laundry falling out of the laundry room, children in the same pajama's she left them in.

Then she will begin to pack to go home. If she packs to go home, the stress level may begin to rise. If the stress begins to rise, mom may become cranky (again). If mom becomes cranky (again), dad may suggest a few day's away by herself to recoup. If she takes a few day's away to recoup....well you know what will happen.
