Mommy blogger Ilana Wiles created an Instagram account to unveil the real truth about parenting. Titled "Average Parent Problems", it's full of hilariously funny photos showing what parents go through while raising kids. From finding a slice of pizza inside your purse to listening to tantrums over pretty much anything - you can expect it all from your little kids.

'I hope other parents will relate to the photos, feel like they are in good company, and see the amusement in our daily problems,' Ilana Wiles, told The Huffington Post. 'I am always aiming to make the struggles of parenthood entertaining. We need it!'

Ilana also invites other parents to submit their own photos from daily life with kids on Instagram with the hashtag #averageparentproblems to get featured, so keep that in mind, mommies and daddies!

Ashamed to say that I have done this as a kid ... and was afraid that they had found out that I prank called them and came to arrest me.

My mom did that once. She covered for it beautifully by writing a note the next night that said the tooth fair was sick that night XD

Unfortunately due to Mom being paranoid about the kid locking herself in the room and being trapped to starve to death forever, we have no locks on any of our doors so even this pathetic excuse for a sanctuary is not available in our house.

As the non mommy of the group, I specialize in holding and entertaining the kids while moms eat ... still referred to by one of them as "not a kid person" ..fml

The attention span is about - .03 seconds, and they try to walk in every direction at once.

Aw, poor kid. She wsnted to handle it herself. I can relate... I recently lost my adult dignity by grabbing trash out of the bushes in a state park - and realized afterword I had just put a million burrs in my hair and clothes. Oiled my hair and cried as I sat in the tub and carefully removeed 500000+ burrsfrom it. Ruined my fav tee. I'm sure i could have handled this better, but hey, sometimes you just make an impulsively wrong decision. She found out early. Good for her!
