Viral: Side-By-Side ‘Before And After’ Photos Show What Having Kids Does To You

A New York dad’s Instagram callout is showing just how much kids wear out their parents. Mike Julianelle of Dad and Buried has an Instagram account called Got Toddlered, where he posts memes and photos of “things children have ruined.”

It seems kids have ― not surprisingly ― affected his appearance. On Oct. 12, Julianelle posted a side-by-side photo collage of his face before and after having children. Admittedly, there’s a certain pale, sleep deprived quality that may look familiar to parents.

Julianelle, who has a 7-year-old and an almost 2-year-old, told HuffPost that after he posted the photo, one of his followers messaged him to say she loved it and suggested he ask for submissions from other parents.

“I’ve gotten a lot more of these than I did of the typical ‘my toddler destroyed something’ memes I was previously receiving! Probably because taking a photo of something your kids destroyed is less of a priority than cleaning it up,” the dad explained. “And it’s much easier to clean a mess than it is to fix your own face!”

Indeed, Julianelle has posted at least a dozen “before and after children” photos. “I think they show the toll kids take on parents,” he said.
“Obviously, it’s meant to be lighthearted, and no one is seriously blaming their children for the state of their faces or lives, except for me when I seriously blame my kids for the state of my face and my life, which is basically all I do on my blog and Facebook page and Twitter,” he joked.

Julianelle told HuffPost he hopes these photos make other parents laugh and realize they aren’t alone in sometimes feeling “overwhelmed by this parenting thing.”

“My blog and everything else have always been about the fact that it’s okay to be honest about the pitfalls of parenthood,” said the dad. “There’s no shame in admitting that for all the peaks, there are plenty of pits. Kids are the worst best thing that’s ever happened to us and if we don’t laugh about the havoc they wreak we’d have to cry instead and I’m not a crier.”

H/T The Stir

The siblings have always enjoyed “poking fun” at each other.

Viral: Mom Teases Model Brother By Having Her Toddler Recreate His Pics

Model Aristotle Polites had found some tough competition in his 18-month-old nephew.

Polites’ older sister, Katina Behm, hilariously teased him by having her toddler, Augie, recreate his modeling photos. It’d started months ago when Behm couldn’t get Augie into his plaid button-up shirt.

“The image of him with the shirt undone and his bare chest exposed made me laugh because he looked like he belonged on the cover of a romance novel,” she told the HuffPost. “I took a picture and then realized I bet my brother Aris has a picture just like this on his Instagram page which is filled with modeling photos.”

Behm found a similar photo of her brother taken by photographer Royce Bugarin and created a side-by-side image of Augie and her brother. She sent it to her family and asked, “Who wore it better?”

The family adored the comparison, so Behm created an Instagram account with the handle @babyandthebody to continue the funny project. She posts weekly and currently has had more than 9,000 followers.

Behm said her little brother approves of the project (he sometimes posts the side-by-side images on his Instagram page) because they have the same sense of humor.
“My brother and I get along great,” she stated. “We’ve always had a great younger brother/older sister relationship, lots of poking fun!”

Behm chose Polites to be the godfather to her daughter, Delphi (Augie’s twin), and the siblings try to stay in touch as much as they can with their busy schedules.
“I’m so proud of him because he’s out there doing his thing and following his passion, but it’s hard not to rip on him a little bit,” she told the HuffPost. “Some of his modeling pictures are hilarious, but he doesn’t take himself too seriously which is good because I get such a kick out of recreating them with Augie.”

The toddler seems to have somewhat caught on to the project, too. Behm said if Augie doesn’t seem interested in being in the photos, she tables the idea for another day. Once, though, after having a few weeks of not dressing him up for the recreated pics (she saves a few weeks’ posts at a time), the toddler got excited when he realized they were taking more photos.

“The moment I propped him up against the nursery wall where a lot are taken he got all excited because he remembered that we take pictures like that sometimes,” Behm said.

The cute project had also been particularly enjoyable for Behm’s 88-year-old grandmother. She doesn’t use social media, so every Sunday, Behm emails her the photo of Augie she plans on posting.

“She answers, ‘Is it time?!’ and races upstairs to check her email with me on the phone so we can laugh together,” Behm told the us.

“She always comments on how handsome Aris is but Augie always wins in her eyes. I think the love multiplies with every generation.”
