America’s favorite cheese company asked mothers what they really want for Mother’s Day?

And after moms said the best Mother’s Day gift would be “no diapers” or “meltdowns…” but to spend the day kid-free, Kraft Foods offered to hire babysitters so mothers can enjoy a day of self-care.

The company is planning to give a total of $50,000 in babysitting fees through a new promotion as a gift for busy moms.

Beginning at 12 a.m.EST on Sunday, moms can go to Kraft’s Mother’s Day website and get reimbursed for hiring a babysitter by submitting an invoice, signed statement, or receipt confirming a sitting expense on May 12.

Mom’s only need to describe why they needed time off and the rules for the giveaway state, “Once your submission has been validated, you will receive the exact amount to cover babysitting fees, up to $100.”

However, once the $50,000 limit is reached, the promotion ends. Parents are also limited to one submission per household.

Kraft’s head of marketing, Sergio Eleuterio, said in a statement:

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.

He added:

Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate Mom in all of her greatness, but we know the holiday doesn’t stop the challenges of motherhood – temper tantrums, sleepless nights and picky eaters.

For all the details go to the “Mother’s Day Away” website before booking the babysitter. Once you upload your receipt, it may take 6 to 8 weeks to receive the reimbursement, according to Kraft.

One mom reacting to the promotion on social media wrote:

This is awesome! My kids are grown now, but what a great gift for mamas!
