Karen Alpert, the author of I Want My Epidural Back, runs a hilarious mommy Instagram account that documents her adventures in ‘mediocre parenting.’ She's a welcoming contrast against the parenting blogs that make it look like there are never any tantrums, spills, or dark moments while being a mom.

One of her captions: "Okay, so today I had a brilliant idea. I was walking into Tarjay and I had to pee and I was about to go to the bathroom before I shopped when I changed my mind. Wait, I know what I’ll do, I’ll just hold it!! That’ll totally make me shop way faster and I won’t dilly dally (shit, I’m old when I used words like that), and I’ll just grab what I need and get out of there with less stuff. This is genius!! I was like I can’t wait to share this on Baby Sideburns later because this is the most brilliant Target hack I’ve come up with. I could not have been more wrong. Because here’s what actually happened. Usually I pick shit up and look at it and think about whether I want it or not, but when your pee is up to your eyeballs, you just throw it in the cart."
