Desiree Fortin, a mum of triplets, uses her Instagram account, The Fortin Trio, to hopefully bring a smile to other tired mamas' faces. And one of her funniest photo projects, which she dubbed the "R.I.P." series, playfully shows each and every single thing women lose as soon as they enter the wild and wonderful world of motherhood.
"The R.I.P. series has been one of my favourites because it's something all mums relate to," she told POPSUGAR. "I wanted to create something that was relatable, honest, and humorous. This series is a great reminder that you aren't the only mum who doesn't poop alone, wear a mum bra, or have a to-do list that's never-ending. While I wouldn't trade being a mum to my triplets for anything, it's so fun to bring light to something so relatable to mums everywhere!"
And when you're taking care of your kids day in and day out, sometimes it's nice to know you're not alone in this whole parenting thing — especially on the worst days.
"I hope more than anything that other mums will get a smile out of this series and be reminded that they aren't alone on this journey! And even though this life is so much better and full of the greatest love, it's OK to miss our premum days, our premum bodies, and everything in between," she said.
Desiree says that at the end of the day, all she's trying to do is inspire women to lift each other up since it takes a village, after all.
"I think it is important to bring humour to our newsfeeds because there is so much negativity in our world and this offers a good laugh. I think this series is encouraging and I hope that other mums see that, too. As mums, we need to be lifting one another up and supporting each other rather than shaming, and I think the joy in this series does that."
