College Student vs. Baby


College Student vs Baby Funny Comparison

[ click the image to enlarge ]

When kids go off to college we get misty eyed and clutch each other and say “we’re losing our little baby,” or some such choked-up sentiment. But, fortunately or unfortunately, sometimes that’s not as true as we may think. The similarities are still there. Our babies just got bigger, and started driving, and are possibly now off to college.

Think about it, if you dare.

Whether your baby is in a nursery or a dorm room, they’re both surrounded by thick books they’ll probably just skip to the end of. The music they listen to tends to drive you nuts. You might not admit it to other parents, but deep down you know your baby or college student may have a talent for making elaborate messes with toilet paper. They both still don’t seem to know what they want to do in life…

Maybe we don’t lose our little babies after all. It sure seems like they just got less small, but we’re still loving them and looking out for them. As long as they don’t move back in after they graduate.

Tips on Protecting Our College Babies

Sometimes we protect our kids to the point of utter absurdity; it’s our job. But we live in a world with new digital risks to our kids. No, not Minecraft!

Identity thieves can make easy prey of college students. It makes sense. You’ve got someone with most of the things of an adult life, without much of the experience. Easy target. LifeLock let us know about some rad points we parents can use to help the fools we call our kids to better protect their identities.

Get uncomfortably real with your kid about the identity-theft risk of trying to get a fake ID, throw in a birds and bees refresher if you feel like really watching them squirm.

Make sure they’re not dumb with their personal info when using campus wi-fi. Facebook, anyone?

Have them use credit over debit. It’s easier to deal, if a rip off happens.

Make sure their student ID isn’t the SAME AS THEIR SSN! No duh, right? But some schools do this!

What do a criminal, Godzilla, a redneck, Kanye West and a zombie have in common with a baby? Hmph! What DON’T they!

    I always said being in a fraternity prepared me for fatherhood. No Sleep (check), thrown up on (check), trying to understand incoherent babbling to meet someone’s needs (check), changed a diaper (Don’t ask) oh the list goes on….

    lol “the list hoes on?” no pun intended with the frat life..:-P (oh memories)

  3. I find they both like to eat a lot of Easy Mac and hotdogs, too.

  4. Brilliant insight on the picture.
    I love those lifelock commercials too. The dude just gives out his SS like he doesn’t care. Cracks me up.

  5. Emily says:

    Don’t forget that they both wear pajamas when outside the house.

  6. Jessica says:

    This is so funny because I have a teen and then three ages 4 and under and the similarities are endless. No one picks up after themselves and my teen has rediscovered the benefits of being helpless.

  7. Hah. Great graphic!! Never thought of the similarities before.

      Thanks. It’s what we’re here for! To make people… think about… uh… things they never thought of before. Okay. Maybe we’ve gotta work on that tagline. πŸ˜‰
