Motherhood is definitely not all sunshine and rainbows. Especially when the mother is tired or stressed out. Just think - sleepless nights, added responsibility, less time for yourself, etc. Would you be smiling all the time? Of course not. Don't get me wrong, motherhood is a beautiful thing and totally worth all the sacrifices, but it definitely has a downside. These pictures of animals' expressions collected by Bored Panda perfectly capture what "the other side" of motherhood looks like. Keep on scrolling to take a look!
