Moms Are Sharing Photos of Their Kids’ Messy Rooms After Kim K Showed off Immaculate Playroom
Kim Kardashian recently shared photos of her somewhat unrealistic playroom, and the world has been left completely baffled. The immaculately tidy Kardashian-West playroom sparked a debate amongst thousands of confused moms, who then decided to share photos of their own, slightly less boujie playrooms... And they are nothing short of incredible. Keep scrolling to see some of the best responses...
If there's one thing that Kim Kardashian is known for...
It’s her seemingly, and perfectly, pristine life.
Okay, I know that Instagram always makes things look better than they actually are.
But Kim K really does seem to have it all. The looks, the glamor, the wealth…
And she has the family.
With her husband, Kanye West, Kim shares 4 children – North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
It sounds like a pretty busy household, doesn't it?
Anyone with one child, let alone four, will know how much of a handful having kids running around the house can be.
So, surely, the Kardashian-West household must be a bit of a mess in real life?
Like I said earlier, Instagram doesn’t always tell the truth!
Well, apparently, Kim's house is always immaculate...
Including her kids’ playroom, which she decided to share with us all on her Instagram Stories yesterday.
And let's just say...
It is nothing short of completely ridiculous. What kind of playroom is this?!
She even gave us a peek inside one of the drawers...
Where the level of organization is impeccable. Even my own bedroom drawer is this organized… Never mind my child’s’!
Anyway, people were left completely gobsmacked by the immaculate playroom.
And it put all us moms out there to shame… Should our children’s playrooms be that organized too?
Luckily, we weren't alone in our confusion over the whole thing.
The one and only Ellen DeGeneres was also a little baffled by the whole thing, and took to her Facebook page to ask other moms out there to share their own playroom pictures.
And the results are incredible.
The moms came out in full force with their delightfully messy playrooms – They certainly make me feel a hell of a lot better, I have to say. Keep scrolling for some of the best responses…
Okay, now this is a real playroom.
Not quite Keeping Up with the Kardashians, is she?
So. Much. Mess.
But hey, at least they’re having fun.
I wouldn't want to walk barefoot into this playroom...
Lego is truly any mother’s worst nightmare.
The sheer mess proved too much for some children...
This little girl just needed a nap.
And some moms found themselves cornered in by the clutter...
And simply had to clean their way out. Not all heroes wear capes.
I have so many questions.
The empty Pepsi cartons, the duvet, the cat… What on earth happened here?!
An exploded beanbag is enough to ruin anyone's day...
God’s speed to whoever had to clean this mess up.
And some kids don't have playrooms...
Instead, they have the good, old fashioned outdoors. You can’t beat it!
But some moms clearly have the Kim K superpower...
That is the most beautiful playroom I ever did see… Can I move in, please? Clearly, some moms are a lot more organized than I am (see above). But one woman has taken the crown after she built her own giant bed to stop her kids from stealing the space… Keep scrolling for the full story.
In 1918, the world was brought to its knees.
101 years before the current pandemic, the notorious Spanish flu ripped across the world, infecting and killing millions of people.
It became the most severe pandemic in modern history.
The origins of this deadly strain of influenza are still uncertain but, much like coronavirus, it was notoriously quick to spread across the globe.
An estimated 500 million fell ill to the virus.
And roughly one-fifth of those died, with some indigenous communities even being pushed to the brink of full extinction.
It was a dark, dark time for the world.
And, here in the United States, we were hit particularly hard, with around 675,000 deaths been recorded in our country alone.
Age played a huge role in survival chances.
The 1918 pandemic was unusual in that it killed many healthy twenty to forty-year-olds, including millions of World War I soldiers. In contrast, people who die of the flu are usually under 5 years old or over seventy-five.
Both medical research and resources were limited back in 1918...
So the virus was quick to rampage out of control, with prevention efforts being limited to non-pharmaceutical interventions such as quarantine, good personal hygiene, and limitations of public gatherings… It all sounds a bit familiar, doesn’t it?
And now, fast forward to 2020, a new pandemic has brought the world to a standstill.
Since December 2019, the coronavirus has been spreading across the world like wildfire and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
Much like the Spanish flu, the pandemic has caused a global panic.
According to statistics, over a million people have now been infected with the virus, and a further 53,292 have died.
The majority of people around the world have been left confined to their homes...
And, unlike the 1918 pandemic, it is this time the elderly who are most vulnerable to the virus.
Older people are in one of the higher-risk demographics...
And the majority of deaths so far have been people over the age of sixty.
All people over the age of seventy have been told to self-isolate...
And even though this is in their best interest, self-isolation isn’t all fun and games.
A lot of elderly people have been isolated from their loved ones and carers.
Which is certainly not ideal for those who struggle to care for themselves and do their day-to-day tasks.
And not only is this self-isolation difficult for the vulnerable...
It is difficult for a person’s mental health.
Many elderly people have been left unable to see their families and grandchildren...
And it is truly beginning to take its toll.
However, there is one elderly man staying positive amid this pandemic...
Second World War veteran, Bill Lapschies, from Oregon, lived through the Spanish flu pandemic, the Great Depression and his time in the US Army during the Second World War… So he certainly isn’t going to let this one get him down.
Twenty-five days ago, Bill first presented symptoms of the virus...
But it has now been nineteen days since he last had a fever, meaning he could well be the oldest person to ever recover.
And, shortly after making a remarkable recovery from coronavirus, Bill celebrated his 104th birthday.
Socially distanced family, friends, and television crews came together to gather outside the Allworth Veterans’ Home in order to wish Bill a very happy birthday.
It is a true achievement for the veteran.
And, when asked by his granddaughter just how he had survived the virus, he simply replied: “I don’t know. It just went away. Sit out here and you can get rid of anything.”
Staff at the carehome are overjoyed with Bill's recovery...
And, according to Oregon Public Broadcasting, Dr. Rob Richardson, who oversees the care at the home, explained how differently this could have turned out. “This could have easily gone another way. There’s not a lot of interventions that can be done.”
You can watch a clip from Bill's celebrations here.
