We all know ‘Mom duties’ continue throughout the week, no matter the time of day.

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, it’s a full-time job.

But according to this mom, one day in the week is more challenging than the rest. 

The Realities of Being 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 video that saw the world of TikTok follow suit shows Lilly speaking about the most difficult day of the week to be a mom, a Sunday. 

Sundays Aren’t for Sleeping In

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 life kicked in, what was once a day of peace is now the most challenging day of all.

Lilly’s Sundays, the same for all moms, are now about waking up at the crack of dawn to soothe crying babies, feeding them breakfast, and planning a day for them so that they are happy and content. 

Making a Joke of the Situation

To make light of the situation, Lilly jokes that Sunday mornings are now occupied with a baby needing milk instead of having fun.

Lying in bed with your partner or a friend has been exchanged for lying in bed without much sleep feeding a crying baby. 

Weekends Are Full of Commitment

Of course, Lilly loves and adores her child.

But she says that now weekends don’t feel like a breeze like they used to.

While Lilly’s short video makes a joke of the situation, another mom in a similar situation backed up Lilly’s story of being a mom on a Sunday. 

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

Missing Out

Lilly refers to the fact “everyone sleeps in on a Sunday,” implying that she is missing Sunday lie-ins. 

Being a Stay-At-Home Mom

Lilly also discussed 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. She realized this truth after attending a cocktail hour with her ex-colleagues. 

She Chose This Lifestyle

Lilly chose to be a stay-at-home mom. And after an evening out with friends, she felt justified in her choice. 

While she loved her job, the environment where she worked 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, she feels her best self when she is at home with her baby. 

There Are No Breaks

It is good to acknowledge what works for you, as Lilly has.

Some of the upsides of not being a stay-at-home mom are not needing to attend to your child all day and not getting a break from baby care, nap time, feeding, and more. 

Losing Freedom

Lilly is brutally honest about the truth of being a new mom.

From losing her freedom on the weekend to choosing between her baby and work, being a mom isn’t the easiest job in the world. 

Rewarding vs. Challenging

Being a mom is incredibly rewarding, but the hard truths hit when it comes to the daily commitments and responsibilities.

Lilly says it is so worth losing your weekends for it, but remember that some days you might find more difficult than others.

Like Lilly, the most challenging day to be a mom is a Sunday, so be prepared. 

A New Lifestyle

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 in the 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?
