Aylesbury mum trolled after sharing honest pictures of parenting

After posting pictures of her house an Aylesbury mum was trolled. 

Last Monday Caroline Eyles shared a series of images of her 'messy' home to Facebook, and it soon went viral. 

The post was soon shared onto local groups but since going viral, has received a mixture of both support and trolling.

However, she says mess is just a part of life: 

"Can I be lazy? Yeah. Can I not be lazy? Yeah, I go to the gym 4 times a week.

"I am not a slob, no. Can I sometimes behave in slobberish ways? Yeah.. Why? Because I'm human!"

Despite the trolls, she says overwhelmingly the response has been positive.

The photo's were shared after the half term week, the night after a bunk bed swap for her children and as the family get used to a rescue puppy who likes to empty drawers and baskets. 

Caroline says she got home from dropping her eldest at school, saw the house and thought it can wait till later. 

Putting spending time with her 3 year old before he went to nursery, with a cup of tea, first.

Which, she wants everyone to know is okay:

"I think everyone is just desperate for some realism. What is this pressure that we are putting on ourselves to be perfect?

"Just to what you want and be happy. I will applaud you."

The mum of two wants people to be kinder to each other after seeing some of the comments directed at her.
