It's no secret that being a stay-at-home mother is a job in and of itself — any mother will tell you that.
And research from a recent Pew study suggests that the number of women who are becoming stay-at-home moms is actually on the rise. While 71 percent of mothers work outside of the home, 29 percent are staying home, which is up from six percent from 1999. With so many moms at home, why is it that there are still so many stereotypes that stay-at-home moms must just sit around eating Bon Bons all day? (Words I've heard from my very own stay-at-home mother's mouth.)
Here's a painfully relatable stay at home mom meme for every at-home mother who gets it.
