If you are a parent, then you know that the day doesn’t end when your children go to bed at night.

Every day, after putting them to bed, you go back to the living room and the kitchen and spend at least a couple of hours in order to turn the house into normal. All of that, in order to get back to a messy place the next day.

But it seems that not everyone does that. Or some people just take a few days off in order to relax and then return to their daily routine.

Just like a mother of four did some time ago, and she thought it was a good idea to share it on TikTok.

But, although she shared what her house looked like with the TikTok community, she didn’t want the viewers to get mad at her or comment on how bad the home looks.

“I will block those who are mean,” she wrote below the video. “[T]his is to keep me accountable not for views.”

Indeed, she took a video of the kitchen and the living room and, honestly, things looked quite bad.

Around the kitchen, there were lots of dirty plates and a bit of a mess on the floor.

In the living room, there were lots of toys around- and, let’s be honest, how couldn’t there be any with so many kids being around- while there were clothes, shoes, and some other stuff around.

“This is what happens when two lazy adults have four kids and don’t clean up after themselves because, yeah, it’s a mess,” she said.

The woman explained that she was about to clean the house after taking some time off, and she actually did, and showed the results in other videos.

“It is not dirty, it is simply messy, okay,” she said. “And so that’s what I’m going to do today.”

It seems that the mother posted the video on TikTok in order to motivate herself- and possibly her husband- to clean up the house at that point.

And, although the woman was pretty clear about the fact that she didn’t want viewers to comment on her house and tell her how bad it looks, it seems that people didn’t really care. They wrote their comments no matter what.

“I have 4 kids worked full time job and single mom. My house never never looked like that. That’s ridiculous no excuses,” someone wrote.

On the other side, there were viewers who admitted the mother’s honesty.

“The people commenting negatively obviously have never had more than 1 small child at a time or they all have super powers Mama of 5 here,” a woman commented.

In any case, the woman’s post went viral and it got more than a million likes, which obviously means some of the viewers liked her honesty.
