Always one to keep it real for her social media followers, Emily recently shared that try as she might, she’s abandoned the hope of maintaining a picture-perfect home. “I give up ever having a nice house again,” she captioned a photo of her 7-year-old daughter, Annabelle, who was playing with the family’s two kittens… on their dining room table!

In another photo, Emily shared a look inside her cozy master suite, where she snuggled her kids and her pets in her gigantic bed. “My zoo,” she wrote.
