18 Photos That Show the Emotional Rollercoaster of Being a Parent

Some think there is no experience more blissful than becoming a parent. Your days are now filled with the laughter of the little ones, attending your children’s soccer games, and, of course, going on family vacations. However, if we’re being honest, many parents paint a completely different picture. While both mom and dad feel a lot of joy, it is not uncommon for them to be overwhelmed by negative feelings, especially when the children turn from sweet little angels into naughty little ones.

1. “She absolutely hates family photos...”
