As moms we never do enough nice things for ourselves. We often feel guilty spending the money or time on ourselves rather than our children.
If you thought all of that kindness and selflessness went unnoticed, think again.
Kraft (yes, the makers of Kraft Mac & Cheese) Will Cover Your Mother’s Day Babysitting Fees Tomorrow up to $100 so you can enjoy some “you” time.

Kraft announced Tuesday the Kraft Mother’s Day Away Program where they will be paying out up to $50,000 for mother’s to take some time away on Mother’s Day to do something for themselves.
“With Kraft ‘Mother’s Day Away’ we are giving moms across the country the chance to have what they secretly really want: some time for themselves.” – Sergio Eluterio, Kraft’s head of marketing
If you think Kraft is trying to tell you to spend Mother’s Day away from your kids, they aren’t. They are just telling you to take a break and celebrate you. Just for a little while.
You could get a pedicure, a massage, head out for some fine dining with your spouse, I mean, the possibilities are endless.
Here is how it works:
- Hire a babysitter.
- On Mother’s Day, head to the Kraft Mother’s Day Away site and submit your receipt and Kraft will cover up to $100 of your babysitter bill.
And yes, this works on privately hired babysitters too. Per program terms and conditions:
“If hiring a babysitter via a babysitting service provider to use on Mother’s Day, May 12, 2019, take a photo of the receipt or invoice provided by the service provider with the company’s letter head and date confirmation that babysitting services were used on May 12, 2019, write a brief description of why you need some time away during Mother’s Day in your own words in the online entry form.
If you are seeking reimbursement for a privately chosen babysitter of your choice, follow the instructions to upload the image of the signed proof of payment with the following information “I, , confirm that I engaged in hiring babysitting services for use on May 12, 2019, not to exceed $100 in total cost, for Mother’s Day May 12 2019”, as well as a brief description of why you need some time away during Mother’s Day in your own words in the online entry form. Before hiring your babysitter, check the website to make sure the $50,000 limit has not yet been reached.”
So, spend the first half of the day with your family enjoying breakfast in bed and then head out to do something for yourself. After all, you deserve it mama!
