100 Parenting Memes That Will Keep You Laughing For Hours
There are certain things about children only other parents can understand. Like for example what it feels like to constantly have your sleep interrupted, or how exciting and scary it is once your first child is born. The list can go on and on, and this list of 100 parenting memes does just that. It's a long list that if you are a parent, will not be able to stop looking at as it will make you laugh out loud at just how true and relatable these memes are. Some examples include a picture of actor Will Farrell partying it up with the caption that reads When the Baby Finally Goes Down For The Night. Another meme has a picture of fictional character Caillou and reads The Worst Part About Being a Parent. And then there is a photo of actress Melissa McCarthy making a run for it in one of her movies with the caption When You're a Stay at Home Mom, and Daddy Walks Through the Door. If you are a parent, you want to take a look at the list, because you might just relate to every one of these.
There is nothing quite like being a parent. From the start, a new baby teaches it's parents so many things among them just how grating their cries can be, their sleep so erratic, and how breastfeeding can be extremely painful. If you can survive the first few months of parenting without losing your mind, you probably can survive anything; it's comparable to being a superhero. Because as anyone might tell you the first few months of being a parent are difficult if you enjoy things like showering, eating, sleeping, or simply just functioning. But it's impossible to truly convey just what it's like to be a new parent and wake up at night every two hours for several months on end. Or trying to calm a baby who's been screaming inconsolably for a good amount of time. Or a mother dealing with her body now being three sizes bigger than it used to be.
Even past the infant and toddler stages, parents might have sleep issues. With night terrors, nightmares, the flu and the kids sleeping between you and your significant other. Life after children will never be the same. Once you become a new parent, time shifts. What used to be a five-minute run to the store will now take forty-five minutes to account for bundling, whining snack-packing, and other extra steps. It's not as if you turn into your mom or dad overnight, but your perspectives, values, and usual habits get realigned to one single creature and that is your child, or children if you are brave enough to do it all again.
A meme is a neologism that was coined by Richard Dawkins, as an idea, style or behavior that spreads from person to person within a certain culture. A meme acts as a means to carry symbols, new ideas, trends, or practices that can be transmitted and related from one mind to another through writing, gestures, speech, rituals, or other imitable phenomena with a mimicked theme. In other words an Internet meme is a concept that spreads quickly from person to person via the Internet. With memes being shared largely through Internet-based E-mailing, forums, blogs, imageboards like 4chan, social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, instant messaging, and video hosting services like Twitch tv and YouTube. These memes are just some of the things that will make you laugh on the Buzzfeed site. You will also find news, new quizzes, new trends, trending videos, recipes and more. **
