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.

When you come home from work hoping everything to be prim and proper, you may be greeted with scenes from a nightmare.

Reality

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!

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.
