10 Funny Memes for the Sleep-Deprived Parent

December 17, 2016

Everyone knows that new parents are sleep-deprived. That’s a given. But what nobody tells you is that it doesn’t end with babies. Toddlers are debatably worse than babies, because they have the freedom to get out of bed. And they have to be potty-trained. And they still teethe. And they get scared. And they get restless. And they get sick. And they like your bed better than theirs.
