If you have ever been cheated on, you know that it is the worst feeling in the world. There are certain ways to catch a cheater, and sometimes, they are the ones who give themselves away. Whether it is by telling you straight up that they cheated or accidentally texting you instead of the person they are cheating with, there is no good way to find out. These people got caught cheating via text message in the most awkward conversations. Continue reading to feel the second-hand embarrassment for these unloyal people.
1. April Fools…Oh, Wait
April fools day is a fun time to play pranks on your friends, family, and significant others. This person thought it would be funny to joke about cheating on their significant other.
They were probably confused when they received the “me too” message but continued with the joke. They must have thought the other person was also joking until they sent a date other than April first.
2. It Took Her Too Long To Realize What Just Happened
When John sent his girlfriend a breakup text, she was rightfully upset because they had been together for over two years and he seems to be breaking up with her via text.
John then realizes he sent the text to the wrong person, and he did not attempt to cover it up. At first, she believed him, but like other people, it quickly set it that she had been cheated on. We are not sure how John would try to recover from that horrible slip-up.
3. He Definitely Made His Friend Text The Girl
It is hurtful to find out from someone else that your boyfriend is going to break up with you. This girl found out from her boyfriend’s best friend, and it seems slightly suspicious.
It almost seems like the boyfriend was too nervous about breaking up with her, so he had his friend send this lame message that made her feel even worse.
4. Club Bed Ft. DJ Pillow
When this guy told his girlfriend that he was going to sleep while he was actually at the club, he must have gotten confused because it was club bed featuring DJ pillow.
Sadly for him, she also knew where this club was and caught him in the act. There is no way he can say he was sleeping in the middle of a club.
5. He Is About To Face The Wrath Of A Scorned Woman
If you want to end a relationship, there are many ways to go about it, unless you are married. There are steps that need to be taken, and a marriage cannot be dissolved via text message. This woman either thought he was joking or knew that he wanted a divorce for a while.
For a second, she thought everything was ok when he said he messaged the wrong person, but then everything clicked in her head. How do you think he tried to play it off when she realized what was happening?
6. This Child Drives A Hard Bargain
This cheating women probably never imagined that one text message would end up costing her a fortune. She deserved to pay this price for asked her son to keep this monumental secret.
This child knew exactly what they would want in the event that they would have to keep a big secret for one of their parents. It seems that they were quick to state their demands.
7. Danny Boy Had A Very Guilty Concision
We don’t know if this girl was testing her boyfriend to find out if he cheated on her, or if she really wanted to know about the exam, but Danny Boy had a guilty conscious ready to burst.
To make matters worse, he believed that she wouldn’t care if he cheated on her. He found someone great but threw it all away by cheating.
8. Sincerely, Your Annoying Daughter
It must really hurt for this girl to find out her dad thinks she is annoying and thinks her mom is ugly. With that kind of information, she deserves to drive a hard bargain to keep quiet.
She requested $2,500, a puppy, and a new mustang. At this rate, he might as well call a divorce lawyer and spend a little more money so that everyone can go their separate ways. We aren’t experts, though.
9. Never Try To Hit On Her Friends Because She Will Find Out
If you ever try to cheat on someone with one of their friends, you will be caught. They are obviously going to take their friend’s side over a cheating significant other.
This guy walked right into the trap that he set up himself. We wonder what kind of revenge Kellie got on him.
10. How To Catch A Cheater: Bar Edition
Apparently, the new way to tell someone you are going to the bar is to use the code word “inventory.” This girl thought she could get away with cheating by claiming she had to stay late at work.
Unfortunately, that excuse doesn’t work when your boyfriend is sitting across from you at the bar. Their therapy sessions are definitely not going to fix this problem.
11. When Your “Little Sister” Steals Your Phone
Being honest with your partner is very important in a healthy relationship. That includes telling them when you cheated on a test, but you have to make sure you phrase it correctly, or something like this could happen.
This girl saw the word cheating and must have decided it was about time she told her boyfriend that she also cheated. It’s a shame that using the excuse that her little sister took the phone didn’t work. Next time she should try the old “My cat ran across my keyboard” excuse.
12. She Should Probably Have Double Checked The Contact Name
Finding out that you are pregnant comes with a whirlwind of emotions. For most people, they are overwhelmed with joy and excited to tell their partner, unless you are this woman.
Considering she had been having an affair with her husband’s brother, she probably shouldn’t have saved their contacts as the last name then the first name since they both have the last name, Smith. There is no way to recover from this mistake.
13. Don’t Trust A Drunk Person To Cover For You
This innocent guy was just trying to see how his girlfriend was enjoying the party, but instead, he found out something that would hurt him forever.
The moral of the story is never to cheat, first of all, and never trust your drunk friend to be in charge of answering your text messages while you are cheating.
14. Cheating: “Yea Sorry, But It Happens”
Have you ever seen someone who was so nonchalant about cheating on someone they supposedly care about? This guy is basically saying, “So what, everyone cheats. Does it really matter?”
This girl is heartbroken, and her boyfriend doesn’t even attempt to give some kind of explanation. She deserves so much better, and he doesn’t deserve her heart.
15. He Wrote A Song Just For Her
This person was probably feeling angry about their ex who cheated, so they put those angry feelings into a creative outlet and wrote them a song.
They decided to send the song to their ex, and we think that it was time well spent. They have a future in writing diss tracks.
16. Maybe Her Dad’s Name Is Also Brett
This girl either did not read the contact name, or her boyfriend and dad have the same name. She should have known something was off when she was not getting the usual responses from her “dad.”
Also, this proves that her dad knew she was cheating on her boyfriend, so that adds an extra layer of betrayal to this persons cheating.
17. Reading Is Fundamental!
This guy thought he was texting his friend about a hookup he had the previous night, but texted his girlfriend instead. It was a simple mix up between his friend JorDAN and his girlfriend JorDYN.
This reading mistake cost him his relationship, but he shouldn’t have cheated on his girlfriend in the first place.
18. We See A Divorce In Their Future
Although this isn’t the first or last time a cheater has messed up and sent a text to the wrong person, this man tried to get out of his troubles with the most cringy message.
When this man tried to cover up his mistake he spelled service wrong and lost all credibility. We can only assume that she packed his things and kicked him out before he was able to make any more excuses.
19. “Break My Heart And The Xbox Gets It”
To many men, they treat their Xbox’s like it is one of their children, so threatening to break it is like threatening to kill a piece of their heart. When this person was caught cheating, their Xbox was going to be collateral damage.
While it is still better than broken bones, he probably felt pretty bad that his innocent Xbox was broken because of his mistakes.
20. Over-Protective Dad To The Rescue
When this girl accidentally told her dad that her boyfriend was cheating, he went right into protection mode and wanted to hurt her horrible boyfriend.
Moral of the story, never cheat, and never cheat on someone with a protective father who owns a gun. You do not want to mess with a family like that.
21. Pretending To Be Drunk Always Seems To Work
Based on these messages, you can tell that this guy is a Brad or a Chad. The fact that this guy was trying to brag to his friend about cheating is wrong. Now, his girlfriend knows what goes on behind her back.
Also, he must think his girlfriend is dumb to try and apologize and then blame it on the fact that he was drunk. She will find someone so much better.
22. A Family That Blackmails Each Other Stays Together
This man accidentally texted his nephew instead of the woman they are having an affair with, and it cost him a hefty price.
We have to know if his affair was worth $500 plus his Porsche. At that point, why would you stay with someone you do not love just to cheat on them?
23. Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Cold
These two men found out the hard way that they were sharing a girlfriend. When two heartbroken minds come together, you would think that they would come up with a better revenge plan.
Well, their idea was to leave the conversation open so she would see it when she returned to get her phone, and they were going to post the conversation on social media. We hope that made them feel the slightest bit better.
24. Don’t Drag Your Family Into Your Cheating Scandal
Sometimes family issues or events can come up, so you have to change plans with significant others or friends. Apparently, this guy has a relative named Jenny that his girlfriend didn’t know about.
She must have been very confused to hear about Jenny for the first time. It would have been a nice message to get thinking his plans had changed and he could go out, but her name, unfortunately, wasn’t Jenny.
25. Not The Xbox!
This guy thought he was texting the girl he has been cheating with, but like so many others, he texted his girlfriend. When will they ever learn not to cheat and read the correct contact name?
This girl was clearly upset, so she decided to hit him where it would hurt the most and take his precious Xbox. He deserves to feel that kind of pain.
26. She Cleared Her Schedule Up For Next Week
This woman killed two birds with one stone, she told her boyfriend she was cheating and got him to break up with her in one brief conversation. She was going to wait till next week to end the relationship, but now her schedule is wide open.
It is funny that she was already planning to break up with him, but then she suddenly tries to make it seem like she didn’t mean it.
27. Family Will Always Have Your Back
This girl was in an incredibly hurt and angry state, so she didn’t realize that she texted her mom instead of her boyfriend, who cheated on her.
Her family wasn’t going to sit back and let her get hurt, so they decided to teach the cheater a lesson. There is nothing better than family support when you need it most.
28. The New Cure For The Common Cold
Breaking news from the medical world, the new cure for the common cold is going to a strip club. Do you think the works to kill other viruses?
This person was busted in the middle of a strip club, and we can’t think of anything more embarrassing. Well, if you cheat, expect to get caught.
29. Maybe They Will Document The Divorce Via Snapchat
This woman claimed she had to go out of town for a business trip, and while she was in the hotel room, she sent her husband some scandalous Snapchats before she went to bed.
Unfortunately, she failed to remove the men’s boots out of the shots, and her husband quickly realized she was staying in the hotel room with another man. We bet the divorce lawyer wasn’t surprised to hear this type of story.
30. As Long As The Xbox Is Ok…
This girl decided that the best way to tell her boyfriend that she cheated on him was to pretend she broke his Xbox so he would be less mad about the cheating.
Oddly enough, that tactic seemed to work because he was more concerned that his Xbox was still working.
31. Error 404: No F***s Found
It is always sad to hear that someone is missing their ex, but they have no right to when they are the one that cheated.
This person had the perfect reply to their cheating ex. They could care less how much their ex misses them because once they cheated, the relationship was over forever.
32. “If You Didn’t Understand The First Time, Let Me Repeat It”
When your girlfriend claims that autocorrect messed up John to Josh, you might believe them the first time. You might not believe your girlfriend when she accidentally confesses that it was a lie when she thought she was texting her best friend.
John must be really hurt to find out that his girlfriend was not only cheating on him, but she also thinks he is gullible.
33. Curse You Auto Correct!
Don’t you just hate it when autocorrect gets your boyfriend to admit that he cheated on you with your sister? This girl didn’t know that her well-intended three-word text would end her relationship.
We don’t know who we are more disappointed in, the boyfriend, or her sister. How could you ever sleep with your siblings significant other? That is just cruel.
34. Well, That Was Awkward…
Jessica was innocently missing her boyfriend and wanted to let him know she misses him. Unexpectedly, she received a response from his other girlfriend who happened to be on Andy’s phone.
We wouldn’t want to be Andy after that conversation. He set the record for losing the most girlfriends in the shortest amount of time.
35. There Is No Jackie In Room 1422
When this woman asked her husband to call her hotel room, she probably should have thought the plan through better since her boss was staying in the room with her.
Why would she have him call the room if they are already texting? She should have known that he would find out quickly that she was cheating with her boss.
36. Ruining Multiple Relationships In A Short Conversation
Not only did this woman ruin her own relationship, but she also destroyed the relationship of the person she was having an affair with and his fiance.
The woman couldn’t even spell Darrel’s name correctly, and who knows how long she had been sleeping with him. That just shows that she never really cared.
37. No Matter How Long It Has Been, Cheating Is Never Okay
Here is another example of a cheater trying to get back together with the person they cheated on. After a five year relationship, this girl cheated on her boyfriend and then expected him to take her back.
She can beg and plead all she wants, but this man is not budging. He has a zero-tolerance policy for cheaters, and he is sticking to his morals.
38. She Cheated And It Is Somehow His Fault
This girl has to have the worst excuse for cheating. She did not cheat just once, she cheated for two years and then proceeded to tell him that it was his fault because he was gone all the time.
This woman clearly doesn’t understand how a relationship works. She didn’t even try to apologize for her actions but proceeded to blame him. This person is better off without an irrational cheater.
39. Spoke Too Soon
When Tony texted his girlfriend that it was over, she automatically assumed that he was breaking up with her.
Unfortunately, Tony was only referring to the football game, not their relationship. She must have had a guilty conscious to blurt that out.
40. Hit The Road, Jack, And Don’t You Come Back
In the wise words of the singer Jojo, “It’s just too little, too late, a little too long, and I can’t wait.” This girl has moved on from Jack, and she doesn’t care if he misses her or apologizes again.
We don’t know what time he was sending these messages, but based on the fact that he said, “you’re up, I’m up…let’s figure it out,” means that it is probably way too late at night to be having these discussions.
40+ Hilariously Accurate Illustrations Any Parent Will Relate To
This article was originally published on 24/7Mirror
When you think about being a parent what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Is it those adorable moments, the first words, or even the long sleepless and crying nights? For artist Yehuda Devir it was all of the above, and his illustrations depicting his and his wife’s reality of parenthood on social media has since become world-famous for their honesty and their humor. See which of his photos you relate to the most, while also keeping an eye out for a few of the “real” photos we’ve sprinkled along the way. Don’t forget to stick around for the end for a special surprise that the couple has!
1. You Can Stare At Your Baby For Hours
There is nothing more magical than welcoming a child after months of anticipation. When they arrive, any parent will agree that their innocence and cuteness is perfection itself, which makes it basically impossible to not stare at them for hours.
No matter how much of an adjustment it may be to bring a baby home, those peaceful moments remind us that it’s all worth it.
2. Changing A Diaper Is Not For The Faint-Hearted
Many parents will agree that changing a diaper takes some skill. The experience can be incredibly messy and overwhelming at first, but nothing like some practice runs to learn it to perfection.
In this illustration though, the artist depicts how the situation is sometimes so messy down there that it requires taking cover. For the parent who is not on duty though, it can be extremely entertaining.
3. The First Time The Baby Latches
The first time the baby latches can be a magical and highly awaited moment for new mothers. But it is important to emphasize that breastfeeding can be a hard and often tumultuous journey, that its’ not always easy for everyone.
Yet, it can certainly serve as an incomparable bonding experience for the mother and the child, which makes that first moment one of the most special milestones of having a child.
4. When The Baby Refuses To Fall Asleep
Sleep deprivation is a huge thing once you have a baby. No matter how many times other parents tell you that sleep will never be the same, one only understands what that really means once the baby is there.
Here, the illustrator realistically shows just how exhausting some nights may be, especially when the baby simply refuses to fall asleep.
5. Their First Bath Doesn’t Always Go As Planned
Since almost everything about having a small baby is an adventure, bath time is certainly not an exception. Most especially though, the first baths can definitely require two people managing the entire situation.
There are so many steps that go into bathing a baby: getting the right water temperature, choosing the perfect bathtub, but most of all, keeping the baby safe and happy during the entire process.
6. Those First Shots Are Also A Shot To The Heart
Getting vaccinated in general is already a tough experience, but watching your newborn go through their first few shots is incredibly painful.
Though the pain is not inflicted directly on the parent, most parents can testify to the fact that they do “feel” the pain, mainly in their hearts. As both parents show here, the pain is shared.
7. It May Take Some Time Until You Sleep Again
When you have a baby, suddenly falling asleep absolutely everywhere and at any time may become a recurring situation. But there is nothing more rewarding than doing so together, since each parent will be exhausted.
In this picture, the young couple depicts the beauty of going through something so hard together. As the real-life portrait of the family shared here, they have clearly survived and thrived despite those sleepless nights.
8. You Have To Be Prepared At All Times
Just like any adult can have acid reflux, babies have what’s known as infant reflux. This means that most, if not all babies, do vomit from time to time, especially in the first weeks and months of their lives.
Anything from prolonged crying or regular indigestion may result in it. So brace yourselves new parents because the vomiting is about to begin.
9. Parenting Can Be Really Tough Sometimes
Times can get really tough when you’re a first-time parent. Though the happy moments certainly make up for the hard times, anyone is susceptible to feeling like they’re not doing a good job at being a dad or a mom.
This illustration painfully shows that sometimes all we need is to cry in our partner’s arms and to be reminded that we are worth it, and despite the difficulties, we are wonderful parents.
10. Going Anywhere Becomes The Ultimate Mission
When you have a baby going anywhere, even to a short walk to the park, becomes the ultimate mission. You always want to be as prepared as possible, meaning that you may need tons of things to keep your baby clean, fed, and happy.
And of course, if the outing involves two people, there is always that one person that carries the entire thing.
11. Getting The Baby Dressed Is A Job For Two
Even though a baby is a tiny little thing in comparison to an adult, when they arrive, they rule the house. And sometimes simple jobs such as getting them dressed while they’rere constantly moving or throwing a tantrum can easily be a job for two.
Here, the illustrator shows the struggle that he and his wife sometimes go through to get the baby dressed.
12. The First Time You Leave The Baby Overnight
There are a number of milestones parents go through as the baby grows up that can feel like the end of the world. Parents are still people after all, and they need some time for themselves every once in a while.
In this image, the parents have just left their baby with the grandmother overnight for the first time, and the mother is not taking it so easily.
13. Couples Who Get Chubby Together, Stay Together
Many of us have seen the hashtag #couplegoals going around, showcasing “perfect” couples with the most ripped bodies we can imagine. Well, this illustrator decided to keep things real.
He shows that things do change over time, and our clothes may never look or fit the same. Yet, there is nothing more beautiful to go through this journey together, acknowledging that health and love are all that matters.
14. Those Aggressive Love Scratches
Babies have interesting ways of showing their love and affection. Just like grown-ups, some babies are very “independent”. Other babies do certainly love to cuddle, and since they are babies, those hugs and kisses may come accompanied with some scratches and a lot of drool.
For parents though, those moments are cherished with so much love that the extra stuff doesn’t matter.
15. The Baby Rules The Bed
Parents from all walks of life approach sleep training differently. While some try and have their babies sleep in their crib from the very beginnings, other parents are more flexible with sleeping with the baby on the bed with them.
But those who do will most certainly identify with this hilarious image. The couple clearly shows just how the child completely takes over the bed at night.
16. Everything Shuts Down When You’re Putting The Baby To Sleep
Putting the baby to sleep is another arduous ritual that most parents will relate to. When they finally figure out what helps their baby fall asleep they do everything in their power to keep the moment as uninterrupted as possible.
Absolutely anything can disrupt the moment, so when the baby finally falls asleep, everyone is determined to make it last.
17. The First Time They Go To Daycare Is Just Painful
Now here’s another milestone that breaks many parents. It takes a lot of strength and determination to keep ourselves together the first day we leave our children at daycare.
The baby cries, the parents cry, other kids start crying, and the entire experience is just chaotic and heartbreaking. Yet, like many other things that are hard in parenthood, it gets better.
18. It’s A Food Fight Every Day
In many ways, raising a baby means experiencing simple things for the first time through the eyes of a tiny human being. One of these things includes introducing solid food and different flavors that the baby may or may not like.
Here, the parents not only show the daily reality of feeding a baby (which means food all over the place), but also the struggle that it can be sometimes.
19. Showing Affection Becomes A Little Bit Different
It’s undeniable that things change in a relationship once a baby joins the family. Life does become about the well-being of that child, and parents often put their relationship second.
Simple moments like giving a small kiss, lying down on the couch or in bed watching a movie, or going for a romantic picnic, are altered a little bit to accommodate the cute and tiny human being.
20. You Get To Create Masterpieces With Your Baby’s Hair
Doing a child’s hair is yet again another mission that may or may not take much longer than anyone would ever expect. To this father’s satisfaction though, he seems to have just triumphed in making a cute hairstyle for his toddler.
As the real-life photo coming up shows, creating different hairstyles is one of the father-daughter duo’s favorite ways to bond.
21. This Is What Father And Daughter Get Up To In Real Life
As Kobe Bryant reminded the world, being a “girl dad” comes with some awesome perks. Here, we finally get to see the dad and the baby girl that has inspired some of the most relatable illustrations any parent will ever see.
In this cute selfie, he shows just how much fun it is to do her hair while hilariously matching it with his. But if you think they look alike in this photo, wait until you see the entire family’s real-life photo.
22. Nursing A Teething Baby
Not many things can describe the pain of breastfeeding a teething baby. While breastfeeding itself is already no easy task, when those little teeth start coming up the pain is inexpressible.
Needless to say that it’s the kind of pain that one never gets used to, so it takes some teamwork to get through it. One thing that could help, as illustrated above, is squeezing your partner.
23. Your Life Become All About The Baby
It may take a while to grasp the full chaotic situation in this picture, so take your time. Perhaps there is no better illustration to show just how much goes on when raising a child.
The exhaustion is constant, toys can be found everywhere, and a nap may happen at any time, or depending on the baby’s schedule. Here, the parents are all wrapped up in each other taking a much-needed snooze.
24. Documenting Every Milestone
Documenting every step and every moment of a child’s development is crucial for any parent. With phones being an integral part of our lives these days, we get to capture and sometimes even over-capture every important moment in a child’s life.
Here, the couple is witnessing the first time their baby starts crawling. Quickly, they grabbed their phone and snapped every part of it.
25. Mama For Everyone
This might be one of the most hilarious and relatable pictures of the series. As we said, when a child is born, the dynamics of a couple’s relationship may change a little.
In this drawing though, the illustrator decided to make one thing very clear. He was as excited to see his wife undress for her much-deserved shower as their child was.
26. You May Never Get To Do Anything Alone Again
Parents-to-be may not know this, but once there is a child in the home, almost nothing can ever be done alone again.
That includes sleeping alone, walking around the house alone, and even the most private moment like using the toilet alone. Children require attention and if that means following a parent absolutely everywhere, they are ready to do it.
27. Intimate Time Also Looks A Bit Different
Continuing the argument that nothing will ever be the same again, here’s another perfect example of it.
Yes, even the most intimate and necessary moments in a couple’s life become completely different when there is a baby in the picture. In this case, the new parents were in a “bonding moment” when their kid started crying – who can’t relate?
28. When You Find Out You Have Less Hair
Many of us unfortunately experience hair loss as we get older, especially if we live stressful lives. Now, having a baby can be stressful, though our bodies react differently.
In this illustration, the artist shares his desperation when he realizes he’s losing tons of hair, while his wife’s “Rapunzel” hair becomes stronger by the minute.
29. The First Time Your Baby Says “Mama”
Any parent cherishes the anticipation of hearing their child calling them “mama” or “papa” for the first time. In this hilarious drawing, the artist illustrated his wife’s reaction to their daughter saying “mama” for the first time.
He humorously suggests that her happy tears were so many that he barely managed to walk without getting completely wet. What can you do, that’s what a mother’s love looks like!
30. You Realize That Baby Poop Is Lethal
One thing’s for sure, no matter how cute and adorable a baby may be, when it comes to farting and pooping there is nothing cute about it. Those very natural occurrences can have the most lethal smell one can imagine.
In this illustration, the guy alludes to the many times our partners walk up with the baby just after they pooped, not taking into consideration the fact that we may be in the middle of a meal.
31. Going To The Beach Looks Different
“Bouncing back” after having a child is hard, and unfortunately not enough people talk about this. Women all over the world struggle to come to terms with the fact that bodies change after literally growing, carrying, and birthing a child.
Here, the artist decided to pinpoint that it may take some time for the mother to feel comfortable again to show off that beach body again.
32. Mission Accomplished
There is something so powerful about seeing our partners grow into wonderful mothers and fathers. How many parents have had that appreciation and admiration moment for the exhausted yet incredible partners they chose to raise a child with?
In this powerful documentation of their daily lives, the artist shares the moment his wife fell asleep putting their baby to bed while the baby instinctively clings to her mom’s arms.
33. What Putting The Baby To Sleep In Real Life Looks Like
Now here’s another incredibly cute picture that the illustrator himself graced his social media followers with – him as he holds his daughter. While the sacred moment of putting a baby to bed in the evening can come with its challenges, there are days where all the baby wants is a cuddle.
This picture is a clear example of one of those days, where holding that baby is a reminder that the challenges and the hard times mean little when we get to have our baby in our arms.
34. Desperately Baby Proofing The House
While each milestone may signify something enormous, there is something powerfully chaotic that happens once a child starts walking.
Not many parents realize how this completely changes things since the child can now reach and bump into places that she has never reached before. Here, both parents are quickly baby proofing the house as quickly as possible before the child destroys everything.
35. When You Swim As A Family
Needless to say that there is always that one person who loves peeing in the pool. But when you have a kid, you can basically blame all of these little things on the baby, especially when they can’t talk yet.
Unfortunately for the dad though, he didn’t realize that in some pools there is a little product that calls you out as soon as you pee underwater.
36. The Difference A Screen Makes
Introducing screens to small babies is one of the most debatable subjects in the parenting community everywhere in the world.
But for parents who do decide to introduce their kids to some screen time, the feeling of realizing that something can in fact keep them hypnotized for more than five minutes is humongous. In this picture, the artist shows just how fascinating that realization can be for parents.
37. Sometimes All You Need Is A Break
Another very relatable moment for a parent is that one (or two, or three) time that you simply can no longer deal with a crying baby.
Tantrums happen, and when they do, it can be extremely overwhelming. So if hiding in the closet or in a dark room for a bit while our partner deals with the situation are what is going to keep you going, then you do you!
38. It Takes A Team To Complete All Baby Tasks
It takes time to master the art of attending to all of our baby’s needs. Parents worldwide will agree that in order to get things done, a support system is crucial.
Some jobs just need two pairs of hands to be done and this drawing emphasizes why. Both parents seem to be extremely concentrated as they do their best to follow through with a thousand baby tasks.
39. When You Just Need To Grow Up
Growing up has its perks, but it also comes with a bunch of responsibilities. Though the illustrator shared this one as a joke, it’s a good wake-up call for those very supportive partners out there to step up in their home duties.
He jokingly shows the moment he was put on grocery shopping duty but had absolutely no idea what pasta to buy. Thankfully, his wife believes in him.
40. You Always Think You Know What’s Best For The Baby
Now here’s another one that really takes things home for any parent. Every single parent out there believes that they know exactly what is best for their child. An in some cases parents don’t always agree, so the recurrent argument of “I know what’s best for her” comes through every once in a while.
Yet, it’s an important reminder that though it’s tough, it all comes from love and wanting the wellbeing of their child.
41. When You Pass On To Another Stage
This illustration signifies so much for any parent. It highlights the different stages that every parent experiences with their children, be it the first time they walk, their first word, the first day of daycare, the first day of primary school, and the list goes on.
For the artist himself, he chose to share the day he and his wife had been parents for a year and a half, and despite the hardships, had been successfully raising a beautiful girl together.
