Woman hits back at husband who says she does ‘nothing’ on maternity leave in best way

Months off work, with a monthly paycheque still coming in? Sounds like a dream, except for the small responsibility of having a brand-new human being to keep alive.

That little task really does hinder the idea that maternity leave is a months-long holiday, though that didn't stop one husband from jokingly accusing his wife of 'sleeping all day' while he heads off to work.

See how the mum reacted to that accusation below:

I might not have a baby myself, but I've heard enough stories and seen enough TV shows to know that it's a full time job in its own right - the fact nannies exist are proof enough of that.

So it's no surprise that Maisha was keen to put her husband in his place after he claimed his wife 'slept all day' while looking after their baby, and she did so by keeping him updated with all the different ways she spent her time.

And I mean ALL the different ways.

In a video now viewed by more than 1.8 million people, Maisha shared a WhatsApp chat with her husband showing her 'play by play' of the day, which kicked off with her feeding the baby, washing the baby's bottles, washing the dishes and cleaning the sink.

She continued to do some cleaning around the home before acknowledging Noah was 'getting fussy', so she changed him and set him down for a nap, during which time she scrolled through her phone and tried to 'prove a point to [her] worthless husband' - her words, not mine.

At 12pm, Maisha was 'finally able to brush [her] teeth and pee', and 15 minutes later she could grab her 'first sip of water for the day'.

The entire exchange was met with joy from Maisha's husband, who joked that the text stream was his 'dream' before Maisha questioned whether he was really getting the point of her messages.

His response? "I got the point about 100 pics ago."

That wasn't going to deter Maisha though, and she continued on with her daily life spam by sending even more pictures.

The TikToker has been praised for the epic way she responded to her husband's comment, with one fellow mum admitting that she might take the idea for herself.

"It really does make a very visual point. I may steal this idea," they wrote.

If you're ever on maternity leave and hear someone joking about how it's a 'holiday', you know what to do.
