There are events in every person’s life that change everything very fast. However, an unhappy relationship, a prom, a diploma — none of these things will change your life as much as having children. And not everyone has the same attitude toward having a baby. So, is having a baby a nightmare or a dream come true?

We decided to prepare future parents and made 14 illustrations that demonstrate the changes that mothers and fathers are going to go through. And experienced parents will see that our pictures are completely true.

1. Parents sense beauty in a different way.

2. The quality of things is still important. But the things are different.

3. Traveling transforms

4. They forget the words “loneliness” and “calm.”

5. Now it’s a challenge to walk through a room in the dark.

6. Life is still going to be fun, but in a different way.

7. And you don’t need a lot to be happy.

8. When you have a child, you may think: “What’s the point of cleaning?”

9. Leaving home is not an easy task.

10. Perspective is important.

11. Things don’t matter anymore.

12. You have no time to work.

13. The most important thing is to not lose yourself.

14. And the most important bonus is the child’s unconditional love.

Bonus: Once you have a child, you can forget about your sleeping arrangement.
