Mom Illustrates The Differences Between First And Second Kid

Every pregnancy is special, but the thrill and excitement parents have for their first child is felt somewhat missing during the second pregnancy. No doubt parents love each of their kids equally, but it’s quite natural for first time parents to be extra careful with their first kid, because everything is new and they need to learn. With the second born, parents get relaxed and chilled out about things they worried so much at the time of first born because now they have the knowledge and experience.

Wang chen, a mom of 2 daughters and an artist and game designer by profession has hillariously explained the differences between raising the first and second kid with a comic series. Check out the strips below. You can check out more of Weng’s work on her website, Messy Cow, or on Facebook.
