About averageparentproblems

Ilana Wiles is the force behind Mommy Shorts, a blog and Instagram page that satirically documents the fun and trying aspects of parenting. Her Instagram account showcases little hilarities and moments all parents can relate to, posting captions like, “Siblings are just another word for accomplices.” No child is safe from her memes, not even her own children, who have their own highlight on the Instagram page. Since leaving her advertising job in 2015, she has become a leading “mommy blogger,” using her great sense of humor to tie together the common experience of everyday moms and dads to nearly 400K Instagram followers.
