I’m a single mum-of-6 living in a 2-bed council house – it’s far from ‘perfect’ but that’s OK, I show the messy reality

KEEPING the house clean is a never ending task for most, but when you have six kids it’s almost impossible some days.

Everyone is house proud to some extent but there comes a point in every household when no matter how hard you try, the place will eventually looked “lived in.”

Posting ‘motivation for mums’ this TikTok mum of six likes to post her DIY hacks and share other daily reminders to keep other mums going.

Her recent clip highlighted a different side to motherhood, celebrating the fact that perfection doesn’t exist.

The single mum @the.wisdom.family7 introduced a tour of her home saying: “Realistic video for you hot mums out there, because let’s be honest guys no one lives absolutely perfect, especially when you’ve got so many children.”

“As a mum of six I do try to keep it as tidy as I can with my little DIY projects but I was poorly yesterday …and I couldn’t really do anything so my house is a bit of a mess.

“I’m just putting this out there because I’m the only one that looks after them and I’m the only one that can tidy up to a certain extent.

“Yes the older kids can clean but my clean and their clean are totally different things. 

“I’m just posting a realistic video of what it’s like when I’m not one hundred per cent on the ball.”

The poorly mum has to sleep in her front room and let the children have the two bedrooms upstairs to share.
