Any mom to young kids staying inside with her family due to COVID-19 (most likely without childcare) can tell you how difficult (or impossible) it is to get any alone time—and Chrissy Teigen can relate.

Yesterday the model turned cookbook author and mom to Luna, almost 4, and Miles, 22 months, posted an incredibly relatable photo to her Instagram account. In it, Teigen, dressed in a robe, is in her kitchen checking email on her laptop. Followers can see Luna hiding underneath her mom’s robe. Teigen captioned the picture, “If u are thinking about having children, wonderful! But know u can’t do sh*t alone ever again ever.”

For many moms, who are used to their children magically appearing wherever they are (on the toilet, in the shower, eating a meal, cooking a meal, watching TV—and the list goes on), the photo has struck a chord. “Let alone use the toilet by yourself. You can’t even have the door closed because if you do then your kids are probably doing something they aren’t supposed to be doing!” mom and health cost Massy Arias commented on the post. Celebrity publicist and entrepreneur Yvette Noel-Schure also commented, “Ever. Even when they are grown,” while yet another follower, still, added, “I still bother my mom at least once a day.”

Teigen is one of the many celebrities who have been documenting their day to day lives while remaining indoors. She and husband John Legend have been posting videos of the family cooking together, making music together and, recently, attending a beach side wedding (held in their backyard) for Luna’s stuffed animals.
