26 Pictures Literally Every Parent Will Relate To

Parents with son (3-5), and baby girl (6-9 months) sitting on couch in living room

BuzzFeed has a post by Brett S. Vergara that’s filled with hilarious pictures that every parent will be able to relate to. Beware, though: it may leave you crying with laughter!

When asked for the most hilarious parenting memes they have ever seen, the BuzzFeed Community submitted some absolutely side-splitting images! Parenthood clearly brings many sleep problems, such as finding your children staring at you while you’re trying to sleep, or coming to terms with the idea that you’ll never be able to sleep in again. It also seems to put an end to alone time, freedom and bathroom breaks! Kids will show you just how hard it can be to keep your cool in public when they’re testing your patience!

And, you’ll also learn that you can’t escape from being a parent, and this will probably terrify you. But don’t forget to look on the bright side: things could always be worse!
