This is what a real house looks like

If you’ve been on Pinterest or Instagram for any amount of time lately, you might have had an urge to kill yourself as you look at the perfectly-clean hardwood floors, expertly-organized kid rooms and all around, model-looking homes where the kids are clean and the moms are perfect.

Here’s the deal.

That’s not my world.

And I’m guessing it’s not yours either.

That’s why I’m glad I have friends like reader Gina C., who recently shared these true-to-life pictures of what her house really looks like with 2 kids under 6.

Here’s her laundry table. (You’ve seen mine many times, too.)

Alright, cough ’em up! What does your house really look like right now? Head to our Facebook page, look for the post and add your own “real house series” photos in the comments. I might share them in a future post! ‘Cause nothing’s better than realizing everyone else has a dirty house, too.
