Whether you care to admit it, everyone has indulged in a few selfies. Erin Kiernan, a news anchor in Iowa, readily admits that before having a baby, she would spend hours on hair and makeup to get that perfect photo. But she's also happy to admit that after having a baby, she's a very different person, which she perfectly captures in these drastically different before-and-after photos. Rather than claim that the woman on the left of the split photo is who she is today, she said: "These ARE NOT pictures of the same person. . . . You are an idiot if you think these are pictures of the same woman." With just two photos — both technically of Kiernan but in very different stages of life — she sums up what it is to be a mother in the most honest way. Read her full post above.
