Becoming a parent changes your life forever. You have to start everything all over again, centering your schedule around your child’s needs and well-being.
Every parent will halfheartedly agree that parenting is a full-time job and one of the hardest in the world, but also the most gratifying. Those same parents also like to sugarcoat all the hardships that come with raising children.
The internet is loaded with Instagram and similar social media accounts of happy families, smiling at the camera, sharing their happy times with the world.
Simon Hooper’s Instagram profile is a bit different. He and his wife, Clementine are the parents of four lovely girls, a 9-year-old, a 6-year-old and 10-month-old twins. Taking care of one child is hard enough, imagine how it is with four.
Yet, Simon manages to see the silver lining everywhere, and he documents all his parenting adventures on his Instagram profile, showing it just how it is, every picture accompanied by witty and absolutely truthful remarks.
It is a breath of fresh air to see an unfiltered side of a happy, healthy family life in all its crazy glory.
Parenting tip: Never loose your sense of humor.
