Ten GIFs that capture life with young kids 1


I’ve recently discovered just how much I love GIFs. In fact, my husband loves them so much, too, that almost all our texts to each other now involve them. I didn’t really get them when they first came out. I thought they were super annoying. However, I have since come to appreciate just how accurately they sum up my day, or mood, in just a few, short seconds.

So, I’ve decided to compile a few GIFs here that I believe accurately describe everyday life with  young kids. Perhaps you can relate to one or two and I’d love to know some of your favorites that sum up your life with little ones, too.

Ten GIFs that capture life with young kids:

  1. Living with a 2-year-old who’s clearly not potty trained:

  2. When the strong-willed child finally cooperates without a huge meltdown:

  5. When the stomach bug hits the house:

     

  6. When one of the kids has the nerve to ask if your pregnant:

  7. When you finally mop all the floors and someone immediately tracks dirt into the house or spills a drink on the floor:

  8. You, when your favorite song comes on:

  9. Going out in public with small children:

  10. What parents do every night once all the kids are finally in bed:

     

So, there it is. That’s a pretty typical day in the life of a family with young kids, as expressed in GIFs. Somehow, it makes some of the more frustrating moments funny and bearable. I can look back with a smile at our antics and absurdities. Give it a try! Next time you want to complain about your day, find a funny GIF to express it instead. Your frustrations will be tempered and your sense of humor restored.
