RIP mum truths is the hilarious photo series showing the things we all give up once you become a parent.

Mum of triplets Desiree Fortin, sums parenting up perfectly in a hilarious photo series that shows the humorous side of all the things she’s had to give up since having kids.

Shared to her 30K+ Instagram followers, the series is titled ‘RIP mum truths’ and aims to reassure mums that they’re not alone in missing the way things were before children.

“I wanted mums to know that while we wouldn’t trade this mum life for the world, it’s okay to miss our pre-mum life, pre-mum bodies, and everything in between.”

Okay guys, the truth is, I actually don’t like to read ???????? BUT this was one of the reoccurring #ripmomtruths that many of you sent in, so I had to do it. Can you relate or do you still find time to sit back, relax, and read a good book?? I’m sure we can all relate to reading kid books though-over and over again! Our babes are obsessed with anything Thomas the Train Engine. We are definitely huge on kid books in this household! What’s your child’s favorite book?

  • When you are staying at a friend’s house, have to go to the toilet during the night in a hurry, forget to shut the door tight and you suddenly discover you have the family cat about to jump up to curl up and probably go to sleep. By law cats in this state have to stay inside overnight. I had accidentally opened the wrong door and the cat “escaped” into the rest of the house. Ho shed to lock it in at all.
