Motherhood is a full-time, unpaid job that provides no healthcare or retirement options. Mothers spend a good deal of emotional and physical energy to raise healthy, happy adults. The stresses involved with raising children include the sense
of thankless labor one undergoes as a mother – at least for the first few years when a child is incapable of expressing thanks (and recurring again, of course, during adolescence) – in addition to the physical pain of childbirth. Once a mother has imparted manners, a sense of maturity, tidiness, and kindness to her child, he or she leaves for college or moves out. Hence, from the beginning of childbirth, a sense of departure looms over the mother-child bond, and often only late into their twenties does a child appreciate all of the good his or her mother has done throughout their thankless lives. Mother’s Day is fast approaching on May 11th, and our homey DC inn just north of the vibrant neighborhood of Dupont Circle is the perfect “thank you” for her trouble. Check out suite 403, our largest, most luxurious room, complete with a queen-sized bed, 42″ HD TV, and a spacious living area. It’s the least you can do for her.
