For many moms, staying home with the kids can function like a 24/7 job. Even when you're not balancing another job on top of motherhood duties, you're still acting as a housekeeper, cook, and caretaker all hours of the day. Plus, if your partner works full-time it's likely they expect you to manage the bulk of the cooking and cleaning after they get home.

Even as more women earn the title of breadwinner, the disparity in the household remains, studies consistently show that women do the majority of household maintenance and parenting work. However, while the cultural shift may feel slow, more and more men are recognizing the discrepancies between what's expected of moms and dads.

A Facebook post from appreciative husband and father Zack Williams quickly went viral because of how much it tapped into the different expectations for mothers and fathers.
