The world of stock photography is a strange one (just check out this collection of "Women Laughing Alone With Salad" if you don't believe us) -- and when it comes to images tagged "working mom," the results are just as awkward: It makes perfect sense that this woman's coworkers would be thrilled to help her change her baby's diaper on the exact same conference table where they have coffee and bagels on Friday mornings.

From babies at business meetings to moms who are a bit too cheerful about diaper changes, see how these unrealistic model moms work, cook, eat, clean, and soothe without losing their smile.
