This Mom’s Brutally Honest Comics Show How Your Life Changes After Having Kids (10 Pics)

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 stepping into motherhood?

The simple things you used to take for granted suddenly aren’t so simple anymore and these parenting comics show that perfectly. 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! Add these to all the other parenting struggles and you have a treasure trove for some hilarious cartoon drawings.

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

Scroll down below to check these relatable comics out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Whether these changes are for good or for bad is a individual perception. In my childless-life I had much more free time, more sleep, more gaming, more spectacular holiday trips, less responsibility, less chores. Yet I am now much happier. Thus, I think the very last example with the cardbord boes sums up how life with children can be seen from the angle of joy!
