I am very excited to have been given permission to syndicate an article written by Emily Abbate on CafeMom’s blog, The Stir. The funny Pinterest fails are sure to make you laugh as they are so relatable.
Expectations Vs. Reality Meme
Pinterest is awesome — even if it is depressing as hell sometimes. So many images and projects and dreams beyond the scope of most moms, sigh. C’mon, do you know anyone in real life who actually attempted a pink, 10-turret birthday castle cake that didn’t come out like looking like a pile of Play-Doh with icing? Or whose living room doesn’t look like a small plastic parts manufacturing factory?
Of course our intentions are always good, but it feels like no matter how much effort we put into these crafty DIYs or picturesque spaces, real life always seems to get in the way and ruin our Pinterest-y image. Not only is it disappointing, it’s actually kind of funny sometimes.
Hilariously Bad Mom Pinterest FAILS
The perfect lives moms imagine on Pinterest oftentimes doesn’t reflect the sad reality that actually goes down, which is why we put together these hilarious instances of Pinterest vs. Reality that all moms can surely relate to.
Castle Birthday Cake
That slant gives this edible art some character. You just can’t get this kind of perfection from a cake shop.
Behavior Motivation Fail
Nothing says “great job pooping in the toilet!” like a handful of chocolate.
Coat Rack Fail
The family of the first picture obviously lives in Florida, or someplace else that doesn’t have coats.
Creative Braids Fail
It’s fine, you can’t see the back of your head anyway.
Kid’s Playroom Fail
It might not be pretty but it’s FUNCTIONAL.
Homemade Robot Costume Pinterest Fail
Just like C-3P0, hunny. I swear.
Building a Snowman Fail
We think he captured Frosty during his Melting Phase rather perfectly, don’t you?
Thanks again to Cafe Mom‘s, The Stir, for allowing me to share this fun post with y’all!
These made me crack up because we have all been there at least a time or two when we saw something so absolutely fabulous on Pinterest and thought, “Who really does that?!” Or we decided to go ahead and give that DIY project or craft a whirl and ended up with a product that was not quite so similar to the one in the picture!
