Contrary to stereotypes being a stay at home mom and wife doesn't mean long coffee dates with friends or spending hours at the nail salon, instead its days filled with chores and errands to make sure everyone in the family is taken care of. 

Zoleka Mandela who is a housewife and has a successful career as a motivational speaker, and is battling depression penned a heartfelt letter to other housewives. 

"Some housewives actually get to put their feet up, even if it’s to bottle feed their baby that they may just want to be their last born. Some housewives are truly thankful for moments like these, even when the babies in these pictures poop, pee and throw up on them on the daily!" 

She added that even though she felt completely drained after a session with her therapist, she had to keep it moving because she had a role to fulfill. Zoleka added that she often shares posts like this to remind other housewives that they're doing an incredible job. 

"Some housewives had to get off from this couch after feeding their babies and attend to their wifely and motherly duties, even after a session with their therapist that left them both emotionally and physically exhausted. Some housewives have to post pictures just like these ones to remind other housewives that even at their worst, they’ll always be the most incredible."

Some housewives actually get to put their feet up, even if it’s to bottle feed their baby that they may just want to be their last born. 😂 Some housewives also have husbands who insist that they want more babies, even when their newborn is barely 3 months old and their husbands feel like the 6th (youngest) child in their blended family. 🤪 Some housewives have awesome 5yr old daughters who take awesome pictures like this, even if they’re slightly out of focus and the majority of the pictures taken in the end are instead of their 5yr old daughter’s selfies. 😂 Some housewives think back to a time like this when their 16yr son was this obsessed with them and feel their hearts still smiling, even when their son now treats them like a groupie. 😏 Some housewives are truly thankful for moments like these, even when the babies in these pictures poop, pee and throw up on them on the daily! 😊 Some housewives had to get off from this couch after feeding their babies and attend to their wifely and motherly duties, even after a session with their therapist that left them both emotionally and physically exhausted. 🤗 Some housewives have to post pictures just like these ones to remind other housewives that even at their worst, they’ll always be the most incredible. 😘 #HousewifeOfNorthriding #MrsBashala #BashalaFamilyLove #ZenzileBashala #BabyBashala #LittleMissBashala
