Kids On Instagram vs. Kids In Real Life

It’s no secret that the images we post on Instagram are a virtual window into our perfectly filtered life. On IG, our kids are perfect… always ready to smile for the camera, their hair is always combed, their clothes are unstained and wrinkle-free, and they get along wonderfully with their younger siblings. Obviously on Instagram, our kids are perfect.

Let’s be real… for every solid picture of your kid on Instagram, there are 30 failed attempts of the same image sitting in your camera folder. Yup, cat’s out the bag. Here are Kids on Instagram vs. Kids In Real life. Is there a filter that puts a glass of wine in our hands so we don’t lose our cool?
