A mum has shared an uncensored look at what parenting is really like.
Sharing what appeared to be a loving picture with her son on Instagram, what you can't see is that blogger Sophia Cachia’s is actually sitting on the toilet.
“To the naked eye, this looks like your standard cute photo of Bobby & I," she wrote. “This photo was in fact captured whilst I was taking a poo.
"Just thought I'd let you all know. Especially for all those planning on having children soon. This. Is. Your. Life. Goodnight.”
The photo has been like over 7000 times, with most people seeing the funny side.
“This made me giggle to myself,” one use wrote. “I'm glad I'm not the only one whose everyday life is completely consumed by being a mommy, even whilst on the toilet lol.”
Another wrote: “I understand you lol. this picture is the perfect description of my every day routine.”
Others, however, say the mother should teach her children boundaries.
One mum wrote: “I have a 9 year old daughter and I've never had to have her on my lap whilst I'm on the toilet! Learn boundaries!”
