Expectations Vs. Reality: 12 Moms Who Made Epic Pinterest Fails


Ah, Pinterest. We all love you. We spend hours scrolling through you, happily pinning ideas for dinners and birthday parties, for crafts and other activities for our little ones. Everything looks so totally doable, if not easy. It’s inspiring…and okay, a little overwhelming.

I think the latter is what makes us love to see people who have tried – and failed – to make those “easy” or “simple” pins come to life.

So let these 12 moms make you feel so much better about your last (or next) major Pinterest fail. Life is all about managing expectations, after all.

Or, at least that’s what we tell our wee ones.
