Sometimes we need a major life-changing event to really put things into perspective. As the classic song goes: “You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.” What bigger life-changing event is there than having a child?

The simple things you used to take for granted suddenly aren’t so simple anymore. Want to sit down quietly on the sofa and watch a movie? Not so fast, my friend. There are nappies to change and vomit to clean. How about a bit of leisure shopping down at the mall? Nope, the toy store is the only place you’ll be seeing today!

Weng Chen, the genius behind The Messycow Comics, has created a series of ‘before and after kids’ comics that nails this change in perspective perfectly, and will leave all you parents out there nodding your heads in agreement!
