A New Mom’s 10 Most Shocking Realizations—As Described By GIFs

Now we all know motherhood is a gift and that we wouldn’t trade it – or our precious, sweet babies, for ANYTHING in the world, right? RIGHT? (You’re supposed to smile and nod vehemently here, Mamas.) But still, many of us are surprised when we become first-time moms and not everything about motherhood is 100% sparkly, clean, and happy. I mean how could something you love SO much be so LOUD and GROSS at times, riiiight? RIGHT! To drive the point home, I decided to pair some of my most shocking “new mom moments” with some of Tina Fey’s best GIFs. After all, she’s one of the funniest moms around! You. Are. Welcome. And? I’d love to hear what you want to add to the list – we can always do part 2! I mean, I had so much fun writing this, I’m hoping that searching for Tina Fey GIFs is a full-time job somewhere. Ahem. Here we go!
