Bringing a new life into the world is both remarkably rewarding and terribly trying. There really isn’t anything like the first time you hold your child in your arms… and there’s nothing quite like cleaning up after them for the years to come.

While the life of a new parent might be an incredibly special experience, it can also be pretty exhausting… and these new parents definitely know the feeling.
