A father and blogger is receiving major applause for his revelation about how “easy” his wife’s life is as a stay-at-home mom.

According to Bored Panda, Brad Kearns and his wife, Sarah, have been together for nearly 10 years, since they were both teenagers. Now a seasoned married couple, they have three children together. They just welcomed their youngest, Teddy, in October, and they also have two older sons.

As a stay-at-home mom, Sarah does most of the day-to-day work of raising their kids. With a breastfeeding baby and two young boys to wrangle, you might expect that Sarah’s daily life is… extremely easy.

No effort at all. Right? Of course!

At least, that’s what Brad’s tongue-in-cheek post on his popular Facebook page, DaDMuM, says.

“Massive day at work today,” Brad, a working father, wrote.

“And what’s my wife doing? Not much really.”

Brad’s post goes on to list the many, many tasks that his wife must complete each day, revealing that it’s really not easy at all. A lot of people might underestimate the work of stay-at-home moms, but Brad is not one of those people.

The spot-on post now has thousands of reactions and supportive comments on Facebook.

This is Brad and his wife, Sarah. They’ve been together for almost 10 years, and they have three children together, including a newborn.

As a stay-at-home mom, Sarah does the lion’s share of the work raising their kids.

Recently, Brad wrote a tongue-in-cheek post on his parenting page DaDMuM about how “easy” his wife’s life is.

“Massive day at work today,” Brad’s post began. “And what’s my wife doing? Not much really.”

The post continued, explaining exactly how Sarah’s days go.

“All she has to do is get two boys up, dressed, and fed whilst breastfeeding the third,” Brad wrote. “Then no doubt they’ll need to be taken outside or to a park to get all that energy out. How easy is that. All she has to do is sort their bags out, find the hats, pack some snacks and a spare change of clothes, and buckle them into the car.”

“Then while they’re there, she’ll have to feed the baby again coz that’s what he does,” he went on. “Without letting go of him, she’ll have to interact with and help the others on and off swings and stimulate them enough to not get bored. It’s easy, really.”

“They’ll come home where she’ll sort their lunch out.” he wrote. “They probably won’t eat it. Then whilst trying to get them to rest, she’ll jump online and do some online shopping. Groceries… what a life. Pffft…. as if you wouldn’t just go to woolies with three kids on your own.”

“No doubt in the afternoon they’ll be demanding to ride their bikes, scooters, go-karts, and run around out the back,” Brand continued. “She’ll probably just sit around and feed Teddy again. At 4pm, they’ll start getting tired again and get grumpy. She’ll fight with them about stupid little things like ‘don’t hit your brother’. I know, right…”

“Well, at 5 she’ll want to know where I’m at and how I’m tracking,” Brad went on.

“Groceries are about to be delivered and the boys are going crazy. Teddy needs to be held and she has to feed them and begin night routine. I’ll probably reply with a ‘call you back’ message coz I’m busy as f***.”

“She’ll prepare their dinner, watch them eat, run their bath, and dress them for bed all in an hour with one hand coz she’s still holding Teddy,” Brad wrote. “Exhausted from non-stop torment and not a second to herself all day, she’ll call me again to see where I’m at. She’ll be tired, smelly, frustrated, and sick of being touched. She’ll be irritable, yucky, and want nothing more than a shower, a shampoo, and a hot cup of tea.”

“I’ll strut my s*** into the house at 7:30 after my massive day,” he finished.

“She’ll be just chilling on her phone near a toddler or babies cot because they struggling to go to sleep and I bet the groceries are still out because she managed to just get the fridge stuff packed away.

“I’ll probably have to even prepare our dinner.”

Brad finished by thanking his wife for the clearly NOT EASY AT ALL work that she does every day.

“Thank you [Sarah] for everything you do for us,” he wrote. “You’re the glue.”

The post has 1,000 comments and counting, and most are really supportive of Brad’s message.

Many fellow moms chimed in to thank Brad and other dads for the appreciation.

Some feel that this recognition is long overdue.

Others returned the gratitude to working parents like Brad.

There’s no doubt about it: Stay-at-home parents are the MVPs of parenting, as one commenter put it.

Because raising kids full-time is really, really hard. And yet, somehow, moms like Sarah manage to make it look easy.
