You Can Now Rent a Mom for $40/Hr

Mom’s are a lot of things.

They’re listeners. Givers. Therapists. Chefs. Advisors. Huggers. And much, much more.

But sometimes the only problem with your mom is that she’s your mom. She knows you too well. And going to her with certain problems just isn’t an option.

Well, now there’s another mom for that: Nina Keneally.

The 63-year-old Brooklynite and mother of two has, according to The Guardian, also worked as a drug and rehabilitation counsellor (but emphasizes she is neither therapist nor doctor).

Still, she’ll bake you cookies, won’t judge your life and all its complications, and she’ll give you some motherly advice for a couple of $20s an hour.

Need a Mom suggests herself as a mom who won’t:

– question your lifestyle choice
– be judgmental about your hair, your wardrobe, your friends, your vegan diet
– compare you to your sister Maggie or your cousin Jake
– expect presents ever (or even an ecard)
– keep you on the phone for 45 minutes talking about the neighbor’s cat or your uncle’s gout
– ask you to be in a selfie with her

But is a mom who will:

– listen to you over a cup of joe, hot chocolate or wine
– review your resume and edit documents
– iron your shirt for that big interview
– watch a movie with you when you just don’t want to be alone (and bring the popcorn)
– make that pecan pie that you really really love
– buy your real mom’s Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanzaa and birthday presents & wrap and ship them

Based on her website, she’ll presumably also make you a super-weird video too:

Given how alone so many millennials feel, we won’t be surprised if this is something that takes off in Canada as well. Soon, you could rent a mom to help you through your life. Or, you could just try talking to your own for free.
