10 Humorous Comparisons of Family Life: Expectation vs. Reality
We all strive throughout our education and careers to achieve the perfect family life which you hope will remain with you till your last breath. Family means love, compassion, loyalty, and support but although these ideas which were the foundation for any family and which seems idyllic doesn’t quite hold true in these modern harsh times. When you come home from work hoping everything to be prim and proper, you may be greeted with scenes from a nightmare. Here are some instances where our expectations of a perfect family life are dashed or elevated by the reality of it.
1Home sweet home
When we dream of a sweet little nook of our own which we would call out home, we always picture it is as a quaint, cozy, neat little haven where we can chill and relax after a long day’s work, don’t we?
But in reality we find a war zone left by our kids after their reenactment of “justice league “action sequences or, ravaged cushions and carpets by our loved pets. This is what most people come home to in fact.
2A morning together
All couples dream of having a sweet, private bedroom of their own where they can cuddle after a long days work and whisper sweet nothings when they wake up starting off the day with smiles and love.
But in reality, this how you wake up.Most couples do have a bed of their own but that is cramped with kids in between because they just saw a scary movie and our spoilt pets too sleeping on our feet and at times with their backsides on our heads. This makes an amusing family portrait!
3A romantic weekend
All couples dream of having an idealistic, Hollywood inspired romantic weekend, in which they will forget all their grinds of their week and melt into each other arms with a romantic music/movie playing in the background and glass of wine in their hands.
Unfortunately, the grueling week usually leaves both of them drained by the time their movie reaches its interval and they doze off in each other arms forgetting about the rest of the plans….awww but this is so much more realistically romantic as well.
