    Thought this would be a fun article to share, as soon as I saw the girl in the washing machine, I was done. Nothing humorous about that.

    Mary sounds like a troll, don’t worry about him/her. Cute pictures.

    These are great!!!! I can’t imagine how it feels like to have no sence of humor…

    These are funny and a nicely composed, just a little OTT but I don’t think they are meant to be taken too seriously.

    It’s supposed to be funny…why must people always have to read into everything? :-/

    Parenting looks nothing like this… if parenting looks like this to you, then you’re probably a terrible parent. These pics just represent couples who had more kids than they can handle, and have zero control over them.

      Wow- spoken like a true critic who has no clue what parenting is actually like. Good fun!

    “What Parenting Really Looks Like” if you’re an attractive wealthy white person.
