Woman Uses Selfie Stick To Show What Being A Stay-At-Home Mom Is Really Like

By

Sure, being a stay-at-home mom sounds pretty easy.

But have you ever wondered what taking care of a baby really entails? Well, thanks to one creative mom with a selfie stick we now have the answer.

Meet Yuliya Skorobogatova.

Skorobogatova is a 34-year-old mother of two from Moscow, Russia.

She is currently on maternity leave from her job, so when she's not looking after her daughters, Ulyana, 13, and Vasilisa, 1, she spends her free time studying photography at Moscow's School of Visual Arts.

Skorobogatova is no stranger to the struggles of being a new mom and was tired of hearing her friends say she didn't do anything except look after the baby.

So she decided to create an eye-opening visual series highlighting the struggles of motherhood by documenting her daily life with a handy-dandy selfie stick.

She told Cosmopolitan,

I wanted to show women who want to give birth the reality of what awaits them, and tell other young mothers that they are not alone.

Take a look at the pictures below to see some selfies that sum up a day in the life of a mom.

Skorobogatova wakes up pretty early, thanks to her trusty alarm clock, 1-year-old Vasilisa.

She starts the day off by feeding her little one breakfast.

Vasilisa is always right by Skorobogatova's side to remind her there's no such thing as alone time when you're a new mom.

So, Skorobogatova takes advantage of nap time to quickly get herself ready for the day.

Once the baby wakes up, it's time to feed Vasilisa a healthy snack...

...and prepare food for the rest of the family while her baby keeps her company.

Once that's done, Skorobogatova puts her mommy multi-tasking skills to the test...

Then Vasilisa hangs out while Mom takes a speedy shower...

Finally, it's back to playtime until Vasilisa decides it's time for bed.
