It’s no secret that parenting can be as rough as it is rewarding. And the newborn stage dumps parents right into the deep end, where there seems to be no way to get to the other side of the crying, pooping, sleepless nights and leaky boobs and…I could keep going, but you get the point.
Newborns are tough. Which is one more reason I want to hug all 15 of these parents for making me laugh through my exhausted tears.
#15. We’ve all cried over spilt milk if we just spent 20 minutes pumping it in the middle of the night.
#14. The sleep deprivation is real.
#13. Mostly when you should be sleeping.
#12. There’s no way to turn those things off at the beginning.
#11. Totally normal question.
#10. I mean, nice try, though.
#9. This continues into toddlerhood but it can be any type of food or sticky substance, not just puke.
#8. Times two if you’re doing it with a partner.
#7. Because we’ve all tried.
#6. If it’s the latter I want to be friends with your kid.
#5. I’m good.
#4. See also: I’ve found my keys in the front door the next morning.
#3. That’s sure to freak some people out.
#2. Luckily, she won’t remember any of this.
#1. Wait, we’re supposed to change?
Clearly they’ve kept their senses of humor!
