New study says motherhood is the equivalent of working 2.5 full-time jobs

Mothers are working overtime.

A study by the juice company, Welch's, says motherhood is the equivalent of working 2.5 full-time jobs.

The survey of 2,000 American moms finds their average day goes from 6:33 a.m. to 8:31 p.m. -- 7 days a week!

That's 98 hours of work per week, and there's not much room for free time.

Moms surveyed say they get, on average, one hour of time to themselves.

Wine, babysitters and drive-thru snacks are what they say get them through the day.
