Some say that no one will ever love you as much as your mother… and while we’re sure there are plenty of epic love stories out there that prove otherwise, we have to say that sometimes this old adage rings pretty damned true.
After all, it’s often a mother who winds up sucking out her child’s snot with a snot-sucker, not batting an eye at another grand poop explosions or sharing other bodily fluids with her little babe. These are just things that many moms do without thinking twice about, which is probably why this super telling photo of one mom and her child has gone viral.

Sure, the sight of this spit up would probably be enough to make any average Joe gag (it is pretty nasty, after all), but for Desirae Robles, it’s just another average day of parenthood with her six-month-old daughter Addelina caught on camera. Gross, yes. But just look at that cute kid’s smile — how can you stay upset at something so angelic and perfect?
And therein lies the reality of parents everywhere. Your kids will frustrate you, disappoint you, disobey you and even puke on you. But then they go and do something amazing that makes your heart swell so much that you feel like it could explode, and you remember why you’re doing this in the first place.
Judging by some of the responses to the photo, we’d say there are plenty of people out there who agree.

So there you have it. Being a parent can be a shitty job, sure. But that doesn’t mean it always stinks.
