Photoshopping Parenthood

New parents, instead of just showing us pictures of your kids at your cutest, it would be nice to see pictures of them crying and throwing temper tantrums, or pictures of your many sleepless nights. By posting only the nice and sweet aspects of your child’s life, you’re essentially photoshopping parenthood to remove all the unseemly and unphotogenic parts—you’re portraying a false reality. You’re doing to parenthood what Cosmo does with women’s bodies.
