What did you look like before kids? A bit less wrinkled, a bit slimmer, and more Zen-like?
One dad blogger, Mike Julianelle, of Dad and Buried, has started a funny Instagram account called Got Toddlered, which features side-by-side photos of people before and after they became parents to show how their kids have shifted them.
The bio on his Instagram account reads: Submit your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org! Don't worry, they don't have to actually be toddlers. They destroy, regardless of age.dadandburied.com
Mike has a seven-year-old and an almost two-year-old, and after he published his own version of Before and After Parenthood, others did the same.
According to BoredPanda, he says that the main message of this account is that it's okay to be honest about the hardship of parenthood. "There's no shame in admitting that for all the peaks, there are plenty of pits. Kids are the worst best thing that's ever happened to us and if we don’t laugh about the havoc they wreak we'd have to cry instead and I’m not a crier."
