What the world sees on social media and what goes on in real life can be two very different things. 

I've come to realise that I’m pretty good at only showing people what I WANT them to see.

I EDIT EVERY WORD, CROP OUT EVERY FLAW & FILTER EVERY PHOTO.

Especially as a mum. I post pictures of my 3 year old daughter smiling, laughing and being so freakin cute it should illegal (but forget to mention 10 minutes prior she had a total meltdown because her baby brother thought the toilet was a good home for her new frozen doll)!

I don't think I'm the only one. Most of us do it. We only display certain aspects of our lives. We show the highlights, the achievements, the successes, the fun stuff, the flawless selfie (and then delete the other 20).

IT HAS CREATED A FILTERED WORLD. AN IMAGE OF PERFECTION & effortlessness.

Motherhood is anything but eFFORTLESS.

There's tears, tantrums, fussing & fretting (and I haven't even mentioned the kids yet, haha joking... kind of).

Well today I want to take you behind the scenes of my "filtered" mum life and show you all the photos that didn't make the social media cut! Brace yourself. Things are about to get ugly. Well mainly just me. (Thankfully I am not defined by one bad photo)! So go on have a laugh at see what motherhood really looks like.

Side note: This was the photo that I chose to upload to Facebook.  Immediately I was flooded with messages “Oh Sabrina you guys are like the perfect family.” "You have the cutest kids!" Someone even said "Hallmark should pay to use this photo!"

the photo MAY BE "PICTURE" PERFECT. BUT we ARE ANYTHING BUT "REAL LIFE" PERFECT.
