Jonathan Jui has compiled a series of comics that perfectly sum up what life is like with a toddler in the house.
No matter how much advice you get, there is no way to fully prepare you for having a baby of your very own. We don't mean to scare those of you who aren't parents by saying that. What we mean is you will be surprised at almost every turn, but not necessarily in a bad way. It's one of the most amazing journeys you will ever take and it is just hard to prepare for how much your life will change.
All of that being said, just because you can't prepare doesn't mean you shouldn't heed the advice of parents who have been there before. What better way to do that than by reading comics? Thanks to Jonathan Jui, you can do exactly that. That talented dad has put some all too relatable scenarios involving having a baby/toddler around into animated form and we can't get enough of them.
Jonathan has showcased some of his comics on Bored Panda and you can check out all of his work via his Instagram page. So where do we begin? Well honestly, the first one that made us laugh and then frantically feel around for our phones was the very first one in Jonathan's feature article. "Signs your phone was toddler'd." Fingerprints, poorly-taken selfies, a message from someone asking if you called, and ultimately being locked out of your phone entirely are dead giveaways that a toddler recently had their hands on it.
Moving on, wake up call bingo. Between the day your baby is born and a time when they want to sleep as much as possible during their teenage years, there is no way of knowing when they might wake up in the night. The trouble is once they're awake, you're awake. The comic of a baby working a bingo machine is extremely apt, although we're surprised to see a 9 am option in there, when has that luxury ever happened?
As we said above, you can either head to Bored Panda to check out some of Jonathan's top comics, or even better, give him a follow on Instagram to keep up to date on all of his animations. We will certainly be keeping an eye on his page now that we have been made aware of them.
