Raising a child is not easy and Mike Julianelle, of a blog named Dad and Buried started a funny trend where people post side-by-side photos, before and after they became parents to show how their kids “ruined” them.
Julianelle is a father of two, a 7 year-old and a 2-year-old, and has been sharing the truth about parenting on his blog for some time now. He uploaded his version of “Before and After Parenthood” and then other parents followed him.
“Obviously, it’s meant to be lighthearted, and no one is seriously blaming their children for the state of their faces or lives,” Mike told the Huffington Post. “Except for me when I seriously blame my kids for the state of my face and my life, which is basically all I do on my blog and Facebook page and Twitter,” he then joked.
So according to Julianelle, the message of this story is that it’s okay to be honed about the pitfalls of parenthood too.
“There’s no shame in admitting that for all the peaks, there are plenty of pits. Kids are the worst best thing that’s ever happened to us and if we don’t laugh about the havoc they wreak we’d have to cry instead and I’m not a crier.”
