Raising a child is hard, and any parent would agree with that. Parenting is not only difficult but also emotionally and intellectually draining as children are needy, demanding and.. the whole thing requires a lot of time!

Every parent has a different way of looking after their baby. And there is no problem in that! The most important thing is to give a child as much love as possible because, at the end of the day, parents are the luckiest people on the planet to have their baby.

Artist Stale Gerhardsen from Norway is happily married and has 2 wonderful children. A while ago, he got a paternity leave and as he enjoyed the experience, he decided to create hilarious illustrations about it. He posted them on his Instagram and people loved it so much that he decided to compile them into a book!

So scroll down the page and laugh together with us at these hilariously lovely parenting illustrations!

Baby approves! The picture fortunately does not depict the moaning while still wet and the lamenting while applying baby oil...

I guess most parents will agree that despite all the tasks and the occasional hurry, you get more relaxed, more down-to-earth, more "whatever happens is fine" inside in a quite healthy way.

Where did you find this picture of my son? But in an interesting plot twist, I arrived too late and the toilet was already flushed. Plumbing professionals later arrived on the scene.

Wait until he arrives and starts tearing down the toilet paper. The role is mounted the wrong-way round, by the way!
