Hilarious photos reveal hard truths of parenting

Parents-to-be, are you ready to be puked, peed and pooped on? You'd better be as it'll be a regular occurrence, according to comments from mums and dads on lifestyle site Doctor ASKY's Facebook page.

They were responding to a photo of a woman holding a baby, whom by the looks of it, just left a trail of vomit down her back.

Doctor ASKY had asked parents to send in photos of "what parenting actually looks like", and this is just one of the many that are more agonising to look at.

Among the rest are photos of "explosions" - of flour and cushion fillings - in the living room and "bathroom emergencies" like having a child stuck in the toilet.

Having your sofa, television, computer monitor and even your body vandalised is also part and parcel of life after kids, it seems.

The whimsical photos have drawn criticism, with one user asking, "Gotta ask yourself where are the parents???".

But others pointed out that the photos encapsulate the reality of parenthood.

One user wrote: "It is so authentically real! So great someone is capturing it in real space! Awesome! Every parent can relate."

The series of photos has garnered about 14,000 comments and been shared more than 350,000 times on Facebook.
