If you want more average parent problems, I highly suggest you follow @averageparentproblems on Instagram. You can even submit photos of your own with the hashtag #averageparentproblems for the chance to get featured. Or post them on the Mommy Shorts Facebook page.

But if you consider yourself even slightly above average, this Instagram feed is probably not for you. You’d like @aboveaverageparentproblems where parents complain about their kale getting cold because they were in the middle of an exciting homeschool lesson… but I promise, that account does not exist. Yet.
