This month, Mommy Shorts creator Ilana Wiles has enjoyed documenting parents' holiday struggles on her popular Instagram account, Average Parent Problems. Wiles invites moms and dads to submit photos of their funniest and most chaotic moments using the hashtag #averageparentproblems.
"The holidays are never perfect, no matter how people try to make them look," Wiles told The Huffington Post. "Kids have meltdowns over presents, cookies burn, ornaments break -- kids don't become perfect angels just because it's Christmas."
Without further ado, here are 13 "Average Parent Problems" -- the holiday edition.
