This TikTok Mom Says the Hardest Day to Be a Mom Is Sunday!

Who knew that there was a more difficult day of the week to be a mom? This mom did and she’s sharing some other hard truths too about what it’s like to be a stay-at-home mom

Mom Duties

‘Mom duties’ continue throughout the week, no matter what time of day it is. Being a mom is an around-the-clock job. Whether you are a new mom, have had your second baby, or have a football team’s worth of children, apparently, there is a more challenging day of the week to be a mom. 

TikToker Lilly (@thelillyscott) loves to share the realities of being a mom. She shares videos sharing her postpartum stories, the different stages of pregnancy, baby recipes, and more. One particular video that saw the world of TikTok follow suit is where Lilly speaks about the most difficult day of the week to be a mom is a Sunday. 

Sundays Are Hard

Sundays were once a day to have a lie-in with a hangover. It was a day for Lilly to enjoy life however she wanted it, with no responsibilities. Yet, as soon as mom’s life kicked in, the day of peace was now the most challenging day of all.

Lilly’s Sundays, which are the same for all other moms, are now all about waking up at the crack of dawn to soothe your crying baby, feed them breakfast, and plan a day for them so that are happy and content. 

To make light of the situation, Lilly jokes that Sunday mornings are now occupied with a baby needing milk instead of having fun another way. Lying in bed with your partner or a friend is now changed for lying in bed without much sleep feeding a crying baby. 

How Times Change

Of course, Lilly loves and adores her child. However, that doesn’t mean to say that she feels weekends are a breeze like they used to be.

This short video makes a joke about the situation. Another mom in a similar situation writes how she feels about being a mom on a Sunday. 

The mom agrees with Lily and says having a baby needing milk in the morning, instead of a partner being in bed with you, is definitely not hot.  

The way Lilly refers to the fact “everyone sleeps in on a Sunday” implies that she is missing this time. 

Missing a Sleep In

Another video from Lilly shares how she feels about being a stay-at-home mom vs being a working mom. She assumes that being a stay-at-home mom can only work for some people. Lilly realizes this truth after attending a cocktail hour with her ex-colleagues. 

Lilly’s thoughts after the event with her friends were positive in that she got justification for why she chose to be a stay-at-home mum. She loved her job but the environment made her feel anxious. Now, that she is a stay-at-home mom, she feels amazing. 

Lilly suggests that some moms are meant to be working moms because they feel amazing at their workplace. However, Lilly feels her best self when she is at home with her baby. 

It is good to acknowledge what works for you as moms like Lilly has done. Yet, being a stay-at-home mom does come with difficult realities such as needing to attend to your child all day and not getting a break from baby care, nap time, feeding, and more. 

The Truth of Being a New Mom

It seems Lilly is honest and clued up about the truth of being a new mom. From losing your freedom on a weekend to choosing between your baby and work, being a mom isn’t the easiest job in the world. 

Being a mom is incredibly rewarding, but the hard truths hit when it comes to the daily commitments and responsibilities. It is so worth losing your weekends for, but remember that some days you might find more difficult than others. Like Lilly, the most challenging day to be a mom might be a Sunday, so be prepared. 

Now, as a new mom, it seems that life is no longer about sleeping in and having the day off. It is a day to attend to mom’s duties and have your baby crying for milk early hours of the morning.

What are your Sundays like as a mom? Do you think it is the most relaxing or most challenging day of the week?
