Often times many stay-at-home moms get a bad reputation in society as many working men and women fail to understand just how hard they work. A survey was conducted back in 2020 that showed stay-at-home moms worked the equivalent of 2.5 full-time jobs while caring for just one child. A survey showed that moms worked an average of 14 hours per day for a total of 98 hours every week!
A mom was recently told teased by her boyfriend about having too much “free time,” inferring that raising children at home was a day at the beach compared to going to work.
However, she soon showed the world just how hard stay-at-home moms have to work to keep their households running smoothly.
A TikTok user named @sierra_not_ciara is a mother of two who posted a video that quickly went viral. In the video, she proves to her misinformed BF that she works even harder than he does!
The mom shows in the video just how much work she completes each and every day while her boyfriend is away at work.
In the video, she says that her BF thinks she’s doing “nothing” all day while he’s earning money.
So she decided to create a little video to give him a glimpse into the workload she has to carry every day.
She begins by preparing a meal for her daughter.
While feeding her little girl, she watches her while washing the dishes.
Now, anyone with children knows that mealtime can be a big hassle, so she’s constantly doing two things at once.
Most moms readily identify with what she has to deal with as it can be highly stressful pulling it all together.
The mom also mentions show bathing her little girl and washing her hair is a constant “battle.” However, not as much as dressing her afterward.
She notes how her daughter’s very picky about clothes, so it takes a lot of time to get her situated.
But, she pulls it off and even plays with her a bit after getting her dressed.
Afterward, she changes her son’s dirty diaper and baths him. As you can imagine, he’s not a big fan of bath time, which is only more hard work for mom.
After finishing up bath time, she puts her son in the baby swing or on the playmat so she can free her hands up to do the laundry.
However, she has to stop what she’s doing because both her children begin demanding her attention.
After she puts her daughter to bed, she feeds and cleans her son, then begins to clean the rest of their dining room.
As she’s cleaning her daughter’s big dinner mess, she’s also preparing her son for bed as well.
But, as so many babies want to do, her son demands lots of attention and constantly interrupts her cleaning efforts, making the job much longer.
Once mom finally gets to grab some dinner herself, she has to stand up with her son in one hand.
After having a bit of supper, she suddenly realizes that her son had a minor accident. So she has to change once again and bathe him.
She closes the video saying that she would ask her boyfriend what he wants to eat for dinner after she’s done all this.
However, today was a bit different.
Instead of texting him to inquire about his meal request, she decided to make herself a nice stiff drink because it’s clearly been one of those days!
The mom describes her video as a message to men who don’t appreciate all the hard work stay-at-home moms do for them and their families.
After she puts her son to bed, she continues cleaning.
She said that her son was knocked out after she fed him his last bottle, so she got right back to housecleaning.
She swept and mopped the floor and ensured the rest of the house was tidy and clean after being hit by the hurricane known as her two kids.
She also continues cleaning the kitchen.
Then she moves on to the living room area and then back to the kitchen to finish the floors.
Just watching her evening is enough to exhaust anyone! It’s a wonder how so many moms do it!
