This illustrator presents parenting truths we all know too well

Betje Funny Parenting Art

Betje (pronounced ‘betcha’) is a Dutch greeting card designer, and a parent. Her Instagram feed is full of family flavored images, many of which point out a few home truths we can all relate to!

She draws about how crazy life as a parent can be, the typical things which every parent has gone through and, thankfully, the heartwarming reminders that being a parent also means embracing unconditional love.

We’ve picked out a few fave images to share below.


We’ll get back there eventually.

Go! Go! Go!
