  • Some days you just don’t get time to make a nutritional, well-balanced dinner for the kids. And one woman is celebrating these dinner time fails by posting the meals she makes for her kids on Instagram.

    Jessica Rowe, an Australia TV presenter and journalist, has been sharing photos of her children’s dinners for the last few months with #craphousewife.

    Her pictures include spaghetti from a can, takeaway pizza, spaghetti Bolognese and baking fails.

    In a refreshing twist on the usual social media perfection, the TV presenter shares the unedited pictures of the dinners to her 30,000 followers – and they’re loving her honesty.

    When Jessica recently shared a picture of a home made dinner of shepherd’s pie, some of her followers applauded her for her traditional home cooking, with one follower saying: ‘So nice to see a photo of real every day food that hasn’t been tarted up!’

    Other followers agreed that her ‘honest’ pictures were eye opening and also started to share their dinner fails with her.

    ‘A woman after my own heart Jess!’ said one follower.

    ‘I’m such a bad mother. Tonight I gave the kids burnt boxed pizza and garlic bread #imgoingtoburninhell’ said another.[/instagram] [instagram]

    Jessica is also an author of the memoir ‘Is this my beautiful life?’ which details her struggle with postnatal depression and how her dream of being the ‘perfect’ mother and wife led her to become depressed. She now believes its important to understand that we can’t ‘have it all’ and that the book is for women like her who don’t ‘fit the mould of the perfect woman’.

    Jessica’s honest posts have certainly made us feel better about our attempts of failed dinner time efforts, what do you think about them? Have you had any family dinner fails?
