30 Times Kids Couldn’t Care Less About a Pinterest-Perfect Picture | 22 Words

Pinterest is full of beautiful pictures, inspiration, and lies.

Well, not exactly "lies," but they do often make things look so much simpler than they end up being. Seeing that pinnable perfection makes it easy to forget the amount of hard work, luck, digital help goes into creating a perfect photograph.

It's only when you try to recreate them for yourself — with kids who couldn't care less what you want to do — do you realize that, well, it isn't quite as easy as it seems.
