Mommy blogger Ilana Wiles created an Instagram account to unveil the real truth about being a parent. Titled "Average Parent Problems", it's full of hilarious pictures showing what parents go through daily. From finding a slice of pizza inside your purse to listening to tantrums over pretty much anything to - you can expect to see it all.

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

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

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.

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!
