They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and in the cases of the 9 images below, I think that’s totally true.

Because there are some things you just have to see to believe. Like, kid truly do take over and destroy the life you had before. I mean… you don’t want them to die, right? So you have to monitor them every single moment of the day… for the most part. They sleep. Sometimes. Not really.

Everything that comes with being a parent… how exactly it changes everything about you…. definitely falls on that list.

Let’s take a look at the insanity!

9. I can’t get over how they’re sleeping exactly the same.

It’s too dang cute.

8. She was so carefree and happy.

Now she’s just happy.

7. Getting toddler’d agrees with her.

I’m just saying, it’s not a bad look!

6. Look at that gorgeous hair!

We’ll get to see it out of a ponytail again in 3-5 years.

5. She’s still gonna need that alcohol.

Just maybe not all at once.

4. She still looks pretty cool.

If you ask me.

3. The butt really completes the picture.

Mom life at its finest.

2. I think she’s changed her stylist.

This one is cute.

1. This one is my favorite.

Just adorable.

You don’t have to convince me; I’m living it. Every. Single. Damn. Day.

Tell us in the comments about the first time you looked in a mirror and realized it had happened to you!

Oh, come on… don’t be shy. We won’t tell anybody.

Thanks fam!
