Not a good translation.

请假 is to apply for leave from work/school; It is not necessarily equal to taking vacation.

To take leave (without the hint of applying for it) : 放假

To take a vacation (going to countryside, camping, resort, etc., or to another country, for leisure):去渡假。

下个星期我的妈妈会请假 should be accepted.
