Being a parent is not for the faint of heart. You're up all night feeding and changing diapers, trying in vain to make them stop crying, constantly being pooped, peed, and spit-up on, and that's just when they're a newborn. Once they reach the toddler stage and become mobile it's a whole different ballgame.
Or so I'm told, that is. I must admit, I'm not yet a parent myself, although I am, currently, nine months pregnant. So the end is near for me, and the following 30 photos show just how much my life will change once this adorable screaming gremlin is unleashed into the world.
Parents: look at these photos and know that you're not alone. Non-parents: peruse these pics and see what your future holds. And try to appreciate all those sleep-filled nights and ability to put on a shirt that's not covered in baby vomit while you can.
