The only thing that can wreck how you look faster than Mother Nature is having kids. Now, we know they’re a blessing, and your life completely changes for the better once you have a baby. But just because a lot of people feel kids make life worth living does not mean that becoming a parent is a walk in the park. I mean, it might be a walk in the park, if that park is full of sleepless nights, temper tantrums, and several late-night cases of the munchies. Just ask these parents who shared before and after photos on the ravaging effects that being a parent can have on the human body.
You’ve Got Kids
Ten years can really make a difference! Just ask this stud from 2006 who turned into a dad and everything changed. Can you see how he went from being the life of the party, to too exhausted to party by the time he had kids? But he takes the hardships as well as the blessings of being a dad, and he writes all about it at Dad And Buried.
This German beauty celebrated Oktoberfest with one beer in each hand. Today, the only thing she can hold in her hands are her two children. But she wouldn’t trade her kids for all the beer in the world, that’s for sure!
From Whiskey To Coffee
Don’t ask this mom if she wants to go grab a beer. Things have totally changed for her since she became a mom. Now, the only thing she’s looking forward to is two cups of coffee to keep her energy levels from crashing.
From Beachfront To Kiddie Park
We’re betting that the bearded dad at the bottom doesn’t miss the old days when he could lounge around near the beachfront without a care in the world. Now, he has three things to care about! He’s definitely enjoying a day at the park with his three kiddies.
Stress-Free To Stressful
This guy used to look like a total boss, with his clean-shaven look, and his super clean suit and tie. Today, he’s way more casual in a blue t-shirt, donning a dad-approved scruffy beard, and screaming on the inside and outside.
From Kid Rock To Tigger
If you asked this woman from 2009 what she imagined her Halloween costume would be like in seven years, she probably wouldn’t have ever imagined that she’d be dressed up as Tigger. Mom is taking her own Christopher Robin trick-or-treating!
Look at her all excited that she’s going out, hoping to have a blast. Bet she never thought she’d have to stay home with a baby a few years later. But hey, she’ll be able to go out again and party when the baby turns 18, right?
The Death Stare
Sure, it was easier to smile when the only thing she had to hold in her hand was a cocktail! But now that she has to hold a baby, nurse it, change its diaper and burp it, she’s probably wondering when she’ll get to dress up again and have a solo night. Nah, she loves her fussy bundle!
Don’t Look At Me
This mom was ready to take on the world back in her single days by the pool. Fast forward to a few years later, and you’ve got a grumpy mom who’s too tired to even reminisce about the old days— when all that mattered was having the correct SPF and a good cocktail. If you’re wise, you’ll take that camera out of her face before she crushes it with her own two hands.
Pimp That Look
She used to rock those awesome sunglasses, a feather boa, and a pimping hat for Halloween. Since planting that precious little seed on this Earth, she’s gone all country farmer. She certainly hasn’t lost her spirit for Halloween!
