    Spanish
    "My mom, like every mom, had a job over her head".

    ¿Alguna sugerencia para la traducción?

    Mi intento:
    A mi mamá, como a cada mamá, le sobraba el trabajo

    Más contexto, por favor.
    De entrada diría "tenía un trabajo que le superaba."

    i will go ahead and note that the phrase "have a job over your head" sounds very strange and is not something i have ever heard before. plenty of things can be "over your head" in english, literally and figuratively, but i don't really see how a job can.

    Añade "that is" (have a job that is over your head) y funciona "un trabajo que te supera".
