TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY Elise MENAND Rus

Have you spent ANY time yet planning for Mother's Day this year? If not, get ready to feel guilty about it . . .

A new survey of 2,000 women with kids found the average mom spends 97 hours a WEEK taking care of their children. Which is like two-and-a-half full-time jobs . . . even though 70% of moms in the survey said they also HAVE a part-time or full-time job.

And if they got paid for all the work they do for their kids, they'd be raking in an extra $100,460 a year. Here are four more stats from the survey . . .

1. The ten most common jobs moms take on are: meal planner . . . cook . . . housekeeper . . . launderer . . . teacher . . . nurse . . . life coach . . . personal assistant . . . therapist . . . and event planner.

2. The average mom spends 46 minutes a day cooking . . . 44 minutes on laundry . . . 29 minutes on arts and crafts projects . . . and gets less than one hour of "me time."

3. 53% of moms don't get enough sleep, and 47% feel like they don't have time to pursue hobbies, or hang out with friends.

4. 69% of moms in the survey said they wish they could spend even MORE time caring for their kids.
