    However, on second glance, there’s a little more to the photo than you might first think!

    All mums will know that getting a bit of time to yourself away from the kids can be a real treat. Even getting a few minutes to go to the toilet can sometimes feel impossible.

    But now blogger Sophia Cachia, who also goes by the name The Young Mummy, has revealed the truth about how difficult it is to find a few minutes to yourself.

    Sophia shared a photo on Instagram of her cuddling her son while she’s sat on the toilet to show the reality of being a mum!

    She said: ‘To the naked eye this looks like your standard cute photo of Bobby & I. This photo was in fact captured whilst I was taking a poo. Just thought I’d let you all know. Especially for all those planning on having children soon. This. Is. Your. Life. Goodnight’.

    The hilarious caption certainly seems to have struck a chord with fellow mums, as the post has already been like over 7,000 times. Other parents have commented on the image admitting that the picture is hilariously true when it comes to looking after children.

    One Instagram mum agreed, saying: ‘my life… at least I now know I’m not weird’. Another said: ‘I can sympathise and totally relate @theyoungmummy ….I was on the toilet the other week with my son watching ABC kids on my lap’.

    Some mums even admitted that now their children are older, it’s still hard to find a moments peace to pop to the loo.

    One person said: ‘My son is 22 and still says Mom where are you everytime I’m in the bathroom and he’s home hmmmm lets see we live in a rancher and the bathroom light is on …where the hell do you think I am????’

    Another agreed, saying: &’16 &13 and I still can’t go to the toilet in peace!’
