These Before And After Kids Pictures Sum Up Parenthood Perfectly

Anyone who’s ever lived with a child under the age of 10 before, be it a sibling, a cousin, or even your own kid knows they only seem to have two settings: insanely adorable or little monsters from hell!

Yes, you may want to squeeze their chubby little innocent faces because they are just so cute, and at the same time, pull out your own hair because they are so frustrating! It goes without saying that once you have a kid, your life will never be the same again. You can say goodbye to nights out with friends, sleeping in on a lazy weekend is a thing of the past, and peace and quiet are so distant, you’ll probably not remember what silence sounds like…

Got Toddlered is an Instagram account dedicated to this very thing: showing how someone’s life changes after they have a kid. The pictures are hilarious and they’ll probably make you want to put off having children for a few more years…
