Pinterest: The photo sharing website that has people who've never tweeted or dug or stumbled ohhing and ahhing and drooling and pinning like it's their job. Everything is just so pretty and perfect and amazing and inspiring, it's easy to understand why. Well, yes, that's true, but there's a reason I no longer have an account there. Because it makes me feel like shit.

I know that I'm not the craftiest mother on the block, but after Pinterest, I feel like an utter creative failure. Clothespins with outfits drawn on? Pfft. People are building play kitchens! From old Ikea bookcases! With their own bare hands! My cooking may be tasty, but it's certainly far from pin-worthy and my house looks downright filthy compared to the boards on the site.

Surely, I can't be the only mother feeling less than adequate compared to that perfection. So, as a service to any of you who might be feeling similarly, I'd like to offer a few snapshots into my life. Guess which ones they are..

A loving breakfast.

Laundry, laundry, laundry.

Playroom.

A child's bed.

.

Frosting.

Clothing organization.

.Arts & Crafts

Now, don't you feel better about yourself?
