The minute you become a parent, all semblance of your old life is automatically thrown out the window. ‘Fun’ would be a 5-minute toilet break, meals are either mac ‘n cheese or spaghetti, and ‘sleep’ is a word that will not exist in your household… at least for the adults, that is.
Mike Julianelle, the man behind the blog called Dad and Buried, is one such exhausted parent.
Currently dealing with the trials and tribulations of being a first-time father, the 36-year-old started a trend inspiring parents to share their photos before and after their children “ruined” them.
“[It] has always been about not taking this gig too seriously, and these photos are a great way to visually represent that,” he said. “Everyone who submits is in on the joke, we all love our kids but there’s no denying the toll parenting takes! If you can’t laugh about it you’ll never survive!”
