One mother’s Christmas tree has gone viral for her out-of-the-box thinking when it comes to decorating.
Lifestyle blogger Jessie Roberts, a mother of three from Australia, decided to post her tree on Instagram.
The “tree” which she had actually put up the year prior was just a tall pile of laundry topped with a star.
Roberts reveals to TODAY Parenting how she was just trying to have fun with what is usually, a boring chore.
“I think it resonated with so many moms and dads because we all have that pile of clothes somewhere in our homes — dirty or clean — it’s if we choose to show it or no,” she said. “When house duties get to be too much, it’s better to make light of it than to throw the towel in.”
She continues, saying there is a takeaway to her style.
“It’s a good reminder that it’s OK to not be on top of your household chores,” she shared. “And some days, we just can’t be bothered with adulting.”
Amen to that!
