Do you ever have these thoughts when nosing in someone else's social media pages?

Ever wonder how they can get their kids to stand still and look that good

Browsing other mum’s Instagram accounts is my new favourite hobby
. As much as I love uploading pics to my own account, what I love even more is seeing what other mothers are baking, doing and making! Here are the thoughts that go through my head  whilst I’m having a nosy:
  • Why does it seem like everyone is always at the beach? Is it only me that isn’t on a permanent holiday?
  • Please can someone tell me the perfect filter – I always end up looking orange or white as a ghost…
  • How on earth do people make their child stand still for a picture? Are their feet glued to the ground?
  • Did they really bake all those cakes or did they just nip to the bakery and take the wrapping off?
  • Do people go and buy crockery especially for their coffee pictures? My morning cuppa in my faded old mug would not look pretty.
  • Have you ever seen anyone using a selfie-stick in public? I think the embarrassment would kill me…
  • If I tried to take a photo of my toddler mid painting session my cover would go from white to rainbow coloured in seconds.
  • Does everyone actually eat everything that they photograph or are some of those pastries actually just stale props. 
  • How does anyone own enough outfits for themselves and their kids that they can picture themselves wearing something different EVERY DAY!
