There's no such thing as too much of a baby animal — unless you're the grown up animal responsible for parenting it. All parents and caregivers reach their limits from time to time and these 23 animals are 100% OVER it.

1. That new parent life.

2. When your partner promised they would be home before nap time ended, but they LIED!

4. Proof that all toddlers no matter the species are BASICALLY the same.

5. When you learn to pick your battles and this is not one of them.

6. Motherhood: When sleep is a thing of the past.

Universal truth.


7. When all of your kids suddenly go crazy at once:

8. When you momentarily question all of your life choices.

9. "When you've yelled at your kid and you hear them muttering in the next room"

Ungrateful so-and-sos ...



10. When your kid is loud enough long enough and you just zen out and act like nothing is happening at all.

11. "This is my life now."

When that realization hits, it hits heavy.


12. "When punishing your kids, don't take away their electronics. Just take their charger and watch the fear in their eyes as they use it less and less while the battery slowly dies."

This is adults-only chocolate ...


16. "This is not what I expected..."

Welcome to reality.

Sometimes you don't really DECIDE to sleep as a parent.

20. This little kangaroo done got on his momma last nerve

Tough love time.
