Like, maybe you can talk about what your day-to-day looks like, especially for those who don't realize how much work goes into being a SAHM. Maybe you do the majority of the housework and childcare, and it's literally a full-time job and not picture-perfect.

Or perhaps you're a mom who used to be in the workforce, and while you love your kids, it's been a hard adjustment not having a job, and you can share what the transition has been like.
