Ask any parent and they will tell you it can be quite a difficult job to raise a child. They may be excited when they learned that a child is coming into their lives but from the moment that the child becomes a reality, their lives are changed forever.
We all realize that children are blessings and there is a lot of work that goes into raising them. In fact, many parents would consider them to be a lifetime project. People have even dedicated many hours to put together social media groups and blogs to show how much children make a difference in the lives of their parents.
If that isn’t enough to convince you that the struggle is real, look down through the following pictures before and after toddlers. The parents and those pictures will make you realize that raising kids is no joke.
