Mother’s Days is a collection of one hundred written accounts of a day in the life of one hundred mothers around the world. Each mother describes a single day from midnight to midnight. The chosen days are not necessarily special or normal, they are just one day in a life of thousands of days.
The collection includes entries from single mothers and married mothers, full-time working mothers and stay-at-home mothers, an exhausted mother of a newborn in Texas, and a mother of ten children in Israel. The accounts describe the usually overlooked cycles of the day; the juggling of parenting and everything else, working and playing, cleaning and dirtying, feeding and changing, dropping off and picking up. Mother’s Days is a record of aloneness and togetherness. Of the concurrent isolation and connectedness of the individual experience of motherhood, engaged in the same shared cycles of daily life, but with different words, in different places.
