As a mom to three little ones, Meredith Ethington knows the endless of struggle of trying to keep her house somewhat clean. But instead of letting unrealistic standards make her feel bad, this mom is getting real with all of the other mamas on social media who are just trying to make it through the day.

When Meredith was cleaning her house before family came to visit, she thought of various cleaning guides she's come across on Pinterest. "That's when I realized I hadn't cleaned out my fridge in months. I thought to myself, I can't even keep my laundry done and floors mopped regularly!" Meredith told POPSUGAR Moms. "My goal is always to help moms feel like they aren't failing if they can't keep up with the pretty lives we see on social media, and I'm all about keeping things honest on my blog in the hope that it makes other moms feel less alone."

In a hysterical post about her cleaning realities, followed by an equally epic video, Meredith shared a real mom's guide to a "clean" house that pretty much every parent can relate to. Whether you're guilty of threatening to take away their toys for good on a daily basis or find yourself considering burning the house down at least once a month because of the mess, this guide is for you!
