What It's Really Like to Have Kids

Sometimes, no words are necessary.

Parenthood is full of beautiful, tender, heart-expanding moments. Our children challenge us to be better people. They teach us to love in a way we have never loved before.

They also drive us crazy.

In a mere 19 seconds, Ryan Hafey’s YouTube video—which was posted two days ago, and has amassed 50,000+ views—has captured the joy of childhood and the mind-numbing chaos of being a parent. As his three kids run in a circle screaming their heads off, Ryan simply looks at us, knowing that we get him. And we do, Ryan. We totally do.
