Stay-At-Home Dad Shares Hilarious Photos Documenting His Daily Parenting Struggles

Message With A Bottle

As any parent will tell you, raising your kids is no walk in the park.

Even though we love our children to bits, they can be pesky little rascals who'll drive us up the way.

While it's a blessing to be a stay-at-home mother or father, these parents ultimately deal with their offspring's nonsense the most.

One person who knows this for certain is a man who goes by the name Chris Illuminati, a stay-at-home father who has documented the trials and tribulations of parenthood on post-it notes.

"Daycare is obscenely expensive. It made more fiscal sense to stay home with my kid than to collect a paycheck and just hand it over to a daycare facility," Illuminati wrote on Bored Panda.

"One day, while still home on maternity leave, my wife left me alone with our newborn son for the first time," he added. "Before leaving, she politely reminded me of all the duties I was to perform while she was gone. 'I better write this all down,' I joked, and grabbed some post-it notes and a black Sharpie."

"I wrote, 'don't forget to feed and keep the baby alive,'" Illuminati continued. "A week later I found the note on the floor of my office. It made me laugh."

He decided to show off his hundreds of notes to the public, and created his website, Message With A Bottle.
