14+ Pics That Will Be Instantly Relatable To Any Stay-At-Home Mom

Being a stay-at-home mom is probably one of the hardest jobs out there. You're basically on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are no scheduled breaks, and you're lucky if you can eat and pee in peace.

Even though it's tough, these moms are getting through it with a sense of humor and honesty. If you're a stay-at-home mom, these pics will probably make you say, "YUP."

Cooking, stay-at-home-mom style.

Our kids, just love to help, don't they? You know what? Maybe my eggs did need this side of plastic in them. Thanks, guys.

You call it "personal grooming", moms call it a "spa day".

I know it's a bit of a cliché but trying to squeeze in a shower when you're a stay-at-home-mom is insanely difficult. Unless you want to do it super early before the kids get up, but sleep always wins that battle.

Sometimes you just need to lay down the law.

When most of the cleaning falls on your lap every day, you have to make some tough rules so that your family doesn't take advantage of you. This should send the right message.

Summer vacation is the worst.

Welcome to two months of non-stop parenting and entertaining the kids. Don't worry, the first day of school will be here before you know it. Hang in there!

When the kids are being quiet always be suspicious.

A quiet house with kids doesn't exist. If your kids are being quiet, that means that they've gotten into something they shouldn't have and an epic mess is waiting for you.

That's butter, BTW.

Can't a mom get a little privacy around here?

Seriously, we just need two minutes alone so we can pee! That's all we want! It can be our combined Christmas-Birthday-Valentine's Day gift.

I don't know how moms of multiples do it.

Human beings just haven't evolved enough hands to deal with this kind of craziness! Send all your thoughts and prayers to this poopy, pukey mom in need.

Just another day at the park.

There's a reason you should never mess with a mama bear — they will bite you if you come too close to their cubs. Or swear. Same thing.

It's just impossible to keep the kids clean.

It's hardly Mom's fault that 15 seconds after the kid gets out of the bath, they're digging the the dirt like there's buried treasure to be found.

Eventually, you start critiquing children's television.

Getting twitchy over Sesame Street is just the first step in a downward spiral that eventually leads to angry letters to studios complaining that Barney couldn't possibly be purple, because science.

And you should just give up on keeping the house tidy.

Personally, as long as it isn't wet, sticky, or dangerous, I just kick it under the coffee table until I have the wherewithal to clean it up all at once.

Preach, woman!

Of course, just because Dad is home doesn't mean the kids won't be banging at the bathroom door looking for Mom. I recommend adding some earplugs to your bath time routine.

It might even be a bestseller!

I think a lot of stay-at-home moms would get a kick out of it.

It is weird how one half of a partnership always feels the need to announce when they do some basic chores.

When you just need to eat your dinner.

There comes a point where after a long day of chasing and caring for your kids, you just need to shut them out and eat something. This is vital. Please remember to take care of yourself, too, moms!
