Saturday Morning: With Kids Vs. Without Kids


Here’s a painfully funny and accurate before-and-after comparison by @robfee, showing how a person’s Saturday morning goes WITH and WITHOUT the wild, miniature humans we call kids.


For those of you with kids, you’re probably laughing or simply rolling your eyes with really breathy been-there-done-that sighs. For those of you without kids, pay close attention to this and wear a helmet.

Have a happy Saturday, folks!

    I love all of this. My wife is a nurse (sometimes has to work weekends) and chastises me a bit when I roll into the sack around 1am after a bit of “Me time” where I mostly sit and watch an uninterrupted move or something. Saying “They’ll be up in about 5 hours you know…” But it’s pretty spot on!

    tis is good stuff. Can relate to the trouble translating…usefully end up just standing him on the counter…

    Clearly the person that wrote this doesn’t have kids or they have kids with major behavioural issues! Although some are true not everyone’s morning with kids are filled with a series of terrible events! What people without kids will never understand that even when your kids are being turds when they stop out of the blue to say, “l love you, you’re the best Mom ever or something along those lines!” All the terrible moments fade way. When your baby wakes up at 2:30 the morning crying to have a diaper change and eat, yeah you’re tired and aggravated but right when that sweet baby throws a smile and little giggle in your direction you can’t help but be grateful that you’re up with them! I’ll take my hectic kid filled life anyday over my single life, it’s way better and way more rewarding!!!

      It was written with the intention of being funny. The same challenges you’ve made about the left column being inaccurate could also be applied to the right, a lot of kid-less people are up at the crack of dawn. Sorry that humor didn’t connect with you.

    Geez people! It’s a joke! And I’d like to say the whole diaper thing in bed… Totally true! It’s like they burn a hole in it even if you change it at 3 in the morning!

    This is meant in good humor, cannot anyone take a joke anymore? Not everything in the left column is true, and not everything on the right is either. Like I slept until 10am this morning,but a hummingbird was never outside my window, and an Angel never came and kissed me on the forehead as I recall. Now, to all you parents that are being sanctimonious in response to “Saturday Morning: With Kids Vs. Without Kids,”—- YOU made the choice to squeeze out more of your genetic lineage, and I applaud you. Now, I am going to enjoy the rest of my feces-free morning.

    Lol I think its totally funny. People at my work are always asking why I am tired everyday. I’m like once you have kids you will understand lol

    This is hilarious!!! & totally true. Being a parent is so amazing & rewarding. I do miss sleep, but watching my son grow and learn about the trivial things we take for granted, is worth every moment of lack of sleep. I can sleep when I’m dead.
