There are a lot of things that couple should consider before they finally decide to become parents. It is definitely not a “walk in the park” or a “piece of cake”. It’s a lifelong decision that you have to live with, which means that before you even think about doing it, you must really prepare yourself for all the adjustments and changes that will surely challenge every part of your being.
These 50 photos show how parents’ lives drastically changed from when they were childless to now that they have one or more little ones under their care. If you are planning to have a child, this list can probably give you an idea of what lies ahead. So, enjoy!
1. This is why kids love daddy’s beard!
You can easily tell when a man is married:through his beard! Daddies know how little girls just love to play with hair accessories such as colorful pins. And this is exactly why they love Daddy’s beard because eventhough he has little head hair, he has a lot of beard to compensate it with!
2. Even animals get to be parents to humans, too!
Now this is not exactly about human parents but more of a transformation of the house pet before and after their humans have their own kids. This cat has already learned how to sleep with an eye open, thanks to this toddler who just won’t stop playing with her!
3. What past 9PM means before and after you have a kid
When you are childless, 9PM is still an eaely part of the evening. But once you become a parent, you will surely feel as though it’s already midnight and you need to sleep! Every parent knows how exhausting it is to care for a baby!
4. From being a hot babe to becoming part of the sofa
When you become a parent, everything isn’t going to be all about you anymore. You would always aim foryour child’s comfort even if it meant you being a part if the sofa!
5. How parenthood improves a person
Although parenthood is not an easy feat to handle, you can still be assured that it will change you and force you to be a better version of yourself. Why? Because someone is looking up to you now and it is part of your responsibility to be the best parent to your child.
6. This dog who can’t help but roll his eyes
Now, here’s another pet story that totally sums up the change that every parent goes through after having a child. When you already have a kid, there will always be moments where you can only roll your eyes out of so much frustration! And believe me when I say that these moments are not rare occurrences at all!
7. This is how you know that the honeymoon phase is really over
The first few months until the first anniversary of marriage is what most people refer to as “honeymoon stage”. However, a parent knows exactly when this phase ends because that would be the moment the baby was born.
8. Only a year after marriage
Can you tell that the couple in this photo has only one year of being married to each other when this picture was taken? The fatigue and exhaustion in their faces make them look like they’ve been together for decades!
9. From all-out partying to all-out crying!
When we are young, we always love to go to parties amd stay out as long as we are allowed to. We enjoy these fun moments to the max! But, it’s a whole lot different when you become a parent. You will surely go from “all-out partying” to “all-out crying”!
10. The woes of co-sleeping
Remember the phrase “so near yet so far”? This is always a woe when parents struggle with co-sleeping. The baby always sleeps in the middle and takes more than half of the bed when his whole body won’t even reach a quarter of the bed’s size!
11. From partying hard to whining hard
Life before kids is always focused on enjoyment. Most couples love to party during their childless days but when they finally have their little bundle of joy, the exhaustion and fatigue and whining about how tiring everything is never comes to an end!
12. This Macho Man who can now cross-dress just for his daughter
Now this is what you call parenting goals! The change this father has gone through is definitely inspiring and seeing just how far this man is willing to go to makes us all so proud of him!
13. From clubbing together to napping together
What an epic change this couple has gone through! From spending the night together and staying up with each other’s company, this couple now enjoy long, peaceful naps with their little one! For a parent, sleeping through the night is already an achievement and this couple look like they appreciate a nightcap more than a night out.
14. This Mom’s shirt goes from being inspiring to being ironic
This Mom’s shirt quote used to be an inspiring message to her younger self. But now that sge’s a Mom, her shirt always remind her of the irony of it all! From being a wanderer, this Mom has learned to stay put and care for her child so she won’t throw up on her again.
15. Parenting can suffocate you
The changes in new parent’s life can be quite a blur. And if you’re not gutsy and strong enough, you might end up getting figuratively suffocated of all the responsibilities that you now have. Sometimes, if you’re as unlucky as this Mom, you’ll also experoence being literally suffocated because of tour little one’s antics!
16. From being fashionable to being comfortable
This lady’s amazing shot from years ago totally showcased her beauty. But, now that she’s already a parent, everyone can see that she’s willing to be sat on if that meant that her little one will get the most comfort.
17. Parenting leaves you constantly tired
Every parent understands the universal fact about parenting: it is utterly exhausting! It’s even more tiresome if you happen to have toddlers because everyone knows how energetic these little tykes can be! But, we have to admit it. Parenthood might be tiresome but it’s undeniably fulfilling!
18. They grow up so fast
One moment, your child is still a tiny baby. The next moment, they become big forces of energy that can potentially crush you with their unending activity!
19. From going out to drink to staying in to make drinks
This is probably one of the most popular photos in the bunch. Who can ignore the huge change that has hit this mother? It’s just so real, and we can’t help but appreciate the way it summed up what a mother needs to undergo just for the sake of her children.
20. This brave soldier who is now a proud father
We can easily tell which among these photos this soldier feels most scared in. You guessed it right! The one with his kids, of course!
21. Parenting includes a change in drinking buddies
As it turns out, parenting also entails a change in your drinking buddy. If you used to drink with other single men before, you will soon realize that when you’re a Dad, drinking water and having a toast with your kids is your new definition of drinking!
22. When messy becomes a norm
Having kids is totally chaotic! Part of the chaos is the constant mess that they get involved in. And at times some mess are even worse because they come from them to you!
23. Having kids can drastically transform you
Kids can truly transform you in ways that you probably did not think of before. Even a beach goddess can turn into a sleep-deprived mommy after having a baby!
24. From lifting weights to lifting tots!
Parents should still fond the time to keep themselves in shape. But since gym weights are too expensive, Dads normally make use of their kids as weights instead
25. Parenting means having your face double as a poster board
When you become a parent, all sorts of private matters gradually become public. And because your child will surely knock every barrier you have just to reach you, be prepared to make your body a huge canvass for their masterpieces.
26. What Daddies do at night before and after having kids
Being a Dad can change a man drastically. If you prefer drinking over sleeping back when you were single, you will definitely prefer sleeping and bedtime stories over drinking when you finally get to have kids.
27. From a face so fresh to “face-palm”
The exhaustion brought by having a kid is definitely incomparable. At one point, you’ll find yourself face-palming because everything seems to be getting more and more tiring as time passes by.
28. Parenting is about wearing a costume only if it matches your child’s
When you become a parent, you will surely realize one thing. A costume is not a good costume if it doesn’t match that of your child or if it’s not meant to be a family-themed costume!
29. Parenthood is getting used to someone throwing up on you
Back in the day, throwing up is always a disgusting moment that you never want to happen again. But, when you become a parent, throw-ups and puking becomes a normal part of your day, even if it’s you who’s the one who’s getting puked on!
30. From being beer buddies to breast milk buddies!
Women always have each other’s backs. For best girlfriends, motherhood is just another phase where you can take your friendship to another level!
31. Parenting is full of cringe-worthy moments
If you ever need to know something about parenting, it is the fact that it has a lot of cringe-worthy moments! Times such as when your baby poops right before you leave or when the baby cries so loud in the middle of the night are only some of the instances where you won’t be able to fight a cringe.
32. When being a dad takes the life out of you
Before children, we all think of life as already too exhausting and stressful. Now, imagine life while having a little ball of energy coming at you at any time of the day or night and not having the chance to say No. Isn’t that much more tiring? This photo is only proof that we all get tired especially when we are parents!
33. When you get kicked in the face and you’re totally fine with it
Can you still remember the time when people tried to kick you and you just won’t stop until you get back at them? When you have kids, you will surely find yourself in the same situation but this time, you won’t be able to fight back and just let your child kick the hell out of you if that meant they’ll be too tired to sleep past midnight!
34. From feeling glam to feeling glum
Being single is mostly focused on one’s self. You get to glam up all you want because your only concern is the way you look. This changes drastically when you finally become a parent. It’s not just about you anymore and having to care for a kid will surely leave you more glum than glam.
35. From party hottie to sleeping buddy
The days of fabulousness and party nightsare now all gone! Becoming a parent strips you of all that and leaves you to be a sleeping buddy who only cares about how your kids are comfortably snoozing at night.
36. When parenting hits you right in the face
Parenting is no mean feat at all. When it hits you right in the face, there’s nothing you can do but to accept it and do your best.
37. Parenting makes eating out a huge luxury
Caring for a little baby is definitely an exhausting task. Your whole time revolves aroun the baby and you won’t even have enough time to go out and eat! These moments make you realize how eating out peacefully is such a luxury.
38. Parents can go to any length just to entertain their kids
When you become a parent, your life will revolve around the happiness of your tots. When they are happy, you are happy too. This is exactly the reason why parents would go to any length just to entertain their kids!
39. Parenting is all about accepting your fate
Parenting teaches a person to be more accepting and less complaining. It all begins with accepting how your world has changed and everything will follow from there.
40. When you just want to drop on the ground
The exhaustion that parents undergo is not a joking matter. Kids have endless bouts of energy and parents can sometimes find it hard to keep up that they just want to drop on the ground and lay there unmoving amidst of all the chaos!
41. The parents’ way of accessorizing
Parents have a really unique way of accessorizing. They consist mainly of sticky patterns and colorful stamps!
42. Children are the best fighters around
It doesn’t matter if you are a prized fighterbbefore having kids. When you finally become a parent, you will definitely discover that children will always win a wrestling match not because they are strong but because you’re too exhausted to stop them.
43. When getting puked on is a normal part of life
Getting puked on is absolutely disgusting. But this is a normal occurrence when you’re a parent and belive me when I say that there will come a time when you will be cleaning throw-up without cringing at all!
44. When jamming is not all about music anymore
The definition of certain things change when you become a parent. Apparently, jamming is not just about music anymore. You can also jam with your kids when you do the same things like sleeping and snoring together!
45. When a wild Saturday gets a whole new meaning
Here’s another thing that takes on a whole new meaning when you have kids. A wild Saturday used to be an all-night party where people get really drunk. Now it’s just a walk in the park with baby without someone else to accompany you!
46. This is every Mom out there
If this does not sum up parenting, I don’t know what can! This Mom is so all of us!
47. When you miss the days where your biggest problem is your eyeliner
Getting the perfect winged eyeliner for both eyes is definitely a difdicult task that women do everytime. When you become a parent, things such as these become so trivial! You wouldn’t even have the time to put eyeliner so why bother worrying about it?
48. From sweet nothings to loud crying
Without a child, all you couples do is to whisper sweet nothings to each other. With a child, whispering will not be an option anymore and your days and nights will most likely be filled with a lot of loud crying from your kid.
49. When you breastfeed like a boss…while in the toilet
Breastfeeding is a huge adjustment that all moms will go through. It is such a fulfillment to be able to give the nutrition that your child needs. And this is not something that you schedule so if a Mom really needs to breastfeed even if she is inside the rest room, she will always do it just to make sure that her kids gets the milk they need!
50. “What have I gotten myself into?”
This guy’s reaction is like that of a lost kid not entirely sure why he was doing what he was doing! Parenting can sometimes lead you to asking this question and it’s okay. Everybody does this from time to time, believe me.
That was quite a long list, isn’t it? After seeing all these photos, are you still going to try your hand at parenting? But, before you decide, let me just tell you one thing.
Being a parent, like any other endeavor in life, entails a lot of hardships and adjustments. It’s not going to be easy, that’s for a fact. These photos may show the side of parenting that is hilarious, but most of the time, parenting is a job that is full of fun, joy and accomplishment.
Kids are totally lovable, despite the fact that they are really too energetic and annoying at times. But, what can we do? We love them to bits and what matters most is the fact that they are blessings and we are totally lucky to have them in our lives.

Lazy People Solutions That Defy Common Sense
There’s the right way of doing things, and then there’s the wrong way of doing things. But how can a solution be wrong when it’s faster? This is how.
Every day, we go through small internal battles. We argue with ourselves over doing things right or doing things fast. The 40 people ahead all opted to do things fast. And the consequences came even faster as a result!
It’s as good as new.

10+ People That Had No Idea How Attractive They Were Until They Worked To Improve Themselves
Sometimes when your health is out of balance you can’t see yourself clearly. When people struggle with something physical, like weight, they can’t always see how beautiful they really are.

These 30 people have powerful stories, and their transformations are absolutely amazing. Their messages are so inspiring.
“I lost 100 lbs, and I feel great.”
“It took me 2 years and 3 months to get in shape. It sounds like a lot of time, but it was well worth it.”

“The difference between these 2 photos is 4 years. And I was even used to not enjoying what I looked like.”
“Me when I was 19 and 21.”
“I was depressed because of the way I looked. I didn’t even want to live. But I decided that I was able to change everything, so I started losing weight… I feel great, and I’m enjoying my life!”
“I didn’t use to be really fat. I had a hard time choosing the right hairstyle.”
“I used to weigh 60 lb, now I weigh 90, and I keep working on my body.”
“3 years between these photos. Some people don’t believe that it’s me.”

“This is my boyfriend at the age of 16 and 21. It’s hard to tell that it’s the same person.”

“As the pounds started to come off, I noticed a change, but others didn’t — until the day I appeared outside of my office standing up.”
“My goal is to train and inspire people to show them that the weight loss is possible.”

50 Cringeworthy Fashion Fails We Can’t Believe People Didn’t Notice
Not all of us are fashion experts. This is why we try to experiment and mix and match clothes to see if we can look more stylish. Unfortunately, the more we try to look more fashionable, the more we end up failing. The risky fashion choice we make often leaves us looking ridiculous and weird in other people’s eyes.
Fortunately, fashion disasters aren’t always bad. In fact, they can be transformed into little entertainment and also a warning for others to never try to copy them.
Here are the most cringe-worthy fashion fails you need to see this year:
1. Brown logo on white shoes
In theory, putting a brown logo on a white background will make a product look classy. In reality, a brown logo on white shoes just looks like bird poo from afar.
2. A not-so-comfortable evening dress
This is probably one of the most uncomfortable dresses you’ll see. I don’t think you’ll have a great time wearing this to a party or anywhere.
3. When you accidentally stepped on something
This is actually a good pair of shoes if you always walk on mud or dirt. You won’t have to worry about cleaning your shoes. Plus, its design can work as camouflage for when you accidentally stepped on your dog’s poo.
Will you give up or will you never give up? Well, it’s a good shirt to wear if you still can’t decide. At least, you’re letting other people know where you stand.
