Regardless of how your child came to you, parenting is hard work. You’re not any less grateful, or any less of a parent for admitting that. Put your feet up for a minute and have a laugh at these memes, which are so relatable!

Don't laugh. Don't laugh.
6. Don't laugh. Don't laugh.

Must. Hide. The laugh. I could fill a book with all of the naughty but hysterical things my kids have done, but it doesn’t get any easier to stifle the smile.

This is so true of the first baby especially. My son would fall asleep in my arms, only to be ready to party within 30 seconds of me laying him in his bassinet!
