This was supposed to be a funny YouTube comment but then it got way too real

The lusty cries of my child rip me out of sweet nothingness I stumble downstairs, smacking the light switch Fill the bottle up to 270ml of water Add 9 spoons of powdered milk, screw on teat, and microwave for exactly 45 seconds (5 seconds for every 30ml is the rule of thumb, for my microwave […]

You will regret having kids

First of all, watch this video: Pessimistic, right?
