What's A-Parent

These Parents 'Got Toddlered' Big Time, And There Are Photos To Prove It

Life before and after kids looks very different.

What's A-Parent is a series highlighting those who get real about the hardships that come with raising kids. These often untold stories help show parents they are not alone in their struggle, and are doing an amazing job.

While, it's a joyous thing to bring a child into the world and watch them grow into little people all their own, parenthood can take a toll. A very noticeable, physical toll. In an effort to laugh at the effects of being a mom or dad, Mike Julianelle, a 41-year-old father-of-two, created the popular instagram account Got Toddlered. Parents submit hilarious before-and-after photos to the Instagram that illustrate life prior to the arrival of their little one.

"The account was originally dedicated to the memes I made, which showed examples of things children have destroyed or irrevocably altered," Julianelle told BuzzFeed.

Jullianelle, who also writes a blog called Dad and Buried, began his Instagram account by first posting a photo of himself from 2006, before kids, then one from 2016, after kids.  Parents then began submitting their own hilarious before-and-after photos. 

Every year, the Instagram grows, and it's always worth seeing what new pictures have come through if you're in need of a good laugh.
