Images of what it’s REALLY like to be a stay-at-home mum

Meet Yuliya. She’s a stay-at-home mum to two daughters and a bit of a bloody legend.  Yuliya is tired – she’s tired from the non-stop, no breaks, always-on job of being full time mother and she’s REALLY tired of being asked what she does all day.

So, armed with her trusty selfie-stick, this creative mumma decided to document some of the goings-on of a typical day and it’s hilarious and real and something many stay-at-home parents will relate to.

Yuliya, who lives in Russia, says “my days all look the same, like brothers and sisters.” We hear ya Yuls, we hear ya!
