Stay at home mothers all over the world are applauding and even shedding the odd tear, thanks to the beautiful short film, ‘3 Queens’, by filmmaker Matt Bieler. He tackles the delicate question, what does a stay at home mother do all day?

In two and a half minutes, 3 Queens provides touching snapshots of the daily lives of three stay at home mothers, and it includes commentary from their gorgeous children. One of the featured mothers is the filmmaker’s sister, who inspired him to create the short film after observing her raising her three young children.

All of the mothers in 3 Queens are anonymous and for a reason – Matt hopes that the images will universally represent all mothers.

BellyBelly also highly recommends the book, What Mothers Do – Especially When It Looks Like Nothing by Naomi Stadlen.

It’s a brilliant gift for a new mother, because it helps her understand that her feelings are normal, she is not alone, and she is doing SO much, even when it looks like its so little.

  1. Oh my heart. My heart just bursted with love. Us moms go through so much and this just captured such over looked moments. I cried so hard…. Whether its the heart felt feelings or the lack of sleep from taking care of the babies

  2. That short film was so beautiful, Stay at Home Moms are so misunderstood, when i told my friend i wanted to be a house mother she thought it was a joke, she said a house mother just watches tv all day while her kids are asleep or off to school, she rather insisted that i get a degree and be my own boss at a big company, but i knew God had other plans for me, instead of neglecting me kids and putting them in day care, i rather teach them about the word of God, and be a stay at home mom, because im teaching the next generation. Stay at home mom are, nurse, chauffeur, chef, teacher, playmate, laundry attendant, accountant, and babysitters all round up in all. They work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and they have no 15 min break nor a 2 weeks vacation, they don’t even take sick days off. So if you think being a stay at hom mom is “easy” think again.
