Diply 3 Jul 2018

There are moms who make costumes for their kids, 'style' their nurseries, and actually bake for the school sale. These iron-willed women are the Pinterest Moms, moms with a single focus — to create, photograph, and pin their amazingly wholesome and creative lives.

Then there's every other mother.

There is a certain group of moms who go, ahem, above and beyond the call of duty.

There is something really annoying about the Pinterest Moms' super cheeriness.

Sugar coating life tends to make those around you feel more ill than eating all your Halloween candy in one sitting.

When really, sometimes just getting through the day is a massive achievement...

You can't make your soap and use it too — that's just not fair!

And besides, who has time to up-cycle or DIY or craft or whatever anyway?

Pallets are already great at something: being pallets. They don't need to be converted to planters or bookshelves, okay?

...NOT creating fluffy toilet roll holders (not matter how cute they may be).

I mean, let's just face it, you really want bacon and hash browns, right? DO IT.
