Measuring Motherhood

Please enjoy the infographic I made to celebrate the work my mother has done for her family. A mother’s contribution to society is immeasurable and yet I have attempted to quantify some of it.

NOTE: The best way I know to honor motherhood is by honoring my own mother. This is a celebration of her life and the impact she has had on my family. This is not meant to act as a comparison to other mothers.

Of course this silly tribute doesn’t scratch the surface of the work she does. The greatest thing she did was teach her children honesty, character, benevolence, and virtue. Thank you Mom!

    I don’t know how you remembered everything to get the data but that was a lot to digest. Mothers are underrated especially the stay at home mom’s. The world would be a much better place if we put the important things back in the right order and Family being #1. Thanks Dan for the incite.

    Dan, I salute you for this tribute!! And I could relate, because my mother bore and raised 15 children…and yes, she was a stay-at-home Mom,..and later babysat my little girl so I could work!! Love the “love and effort” you put into this!!

    Dan, if this is your birth family, I hope they have a hub on! Our family does. My mom had 7 girls and 4 boys, although 2 bros have transitioned. My sister-in-law is number 9 out of 11, as well, with 7 boys and 4 girls. Thank you for these amazing facts. I will have to sit with them and guesstimate to see if I can understand the math!

    You don’t hear of large family much anymore, I came from a family of eight boys and three girls, my grandmother had eight boys and three girls.
    I was the seventh (7)child in my family, and I am a magician.

    Too bad you used the word “parasite.” Not funny just gross, particularly with all it’s connotations in common usage but it is also biologically incorrect. No child is a parasite.

    1. Katie says:

      Hi, Carol! We are very sorry if anything on this post has offended you. Dan did not mean to say anything disparaging against children, he said parasites as a funny way to show the sacrifice that mothers make for all of us. Again, we’re very sorry that this upset you.

  8. I’d love to post this Infographic on our family;s website. Is that possible?
