"There's so much pressure and so much guilt already to be the perfect parent," Laura told Mamamia.
"There's already so much we feel like we're failing at, so seeing other people being a bit of a hot mess at the same time and getting through the day, you feel like 'oh yeah, this is my tribe'."

The "perfectly curated" family photos that fill our feeds also don't help.
"When you see so many mummy bloggers who have it all together, and their Instagram is perfectly curated, and the kids are beautiful, and don't have any crap on their clothes, it's an unrealistic expectation of what parenthood is. Parenthood is messy and it's exhausting and it's all-consuming."
"Now whenever I see mummy bloggers who have posted the most beautifully curated photos, my first thought is: 'how long does it take you to take that photo?' Because I know, it takes me a really long time to get the really cute photo and my camera roll is full of all these weird photos and the accidental stuff. And I think it's the accidental stuff is way more real, because that's what we're all dealing with his parent."
Just this week, Laura shared what happened when she tried to take a "cute" bath photo of her and the girls while holidaying in Byron Bay.
"Cute holiday bath photo... EXPECTATION VS REALITY," she captioned the Instagram post.
