How Having a Baby is Like a Frat Party

empty bottles all up in this place

A few weeks ago, my friend Summer posted a link to this hilarious Suburban Snapshots post comparing having toddlers to frat parties. After reading through it and having a good laugh, I was inspired to create a list of similarities between having a baby in the house and a rambunctious college shindig.

Below you’ll find 12 ways having a baby at home is like being at a frat party.





  • One 1 of 12
    The dress code is pants optional.
  • Two 2 of 12
    Someone is screaming at 3 a.m. looking for a drink.
  • Three 3 of 12
    It's best to assume that the person closest to you has no control over their digestive function.
  • Four 4 of 12
    You wake up wondering exactly how and when the person in bed with you got there.
  • Five 5 of 12
    Some guy is going to throw up on you and then pass out with his face in your cleavage and a drunken smile on his face.
  • Six 6 of 12
    When there's a wet spot on the bed you just throw a towel over it.
  • Seven 7 of 12
    There's always one guy who will end up spending the night behind bars.
  • Eight 8 of 12
    Someone is bound to get mad when you take the keys away.
  • Nine 9 of 12
    By the end of the night the house is littered with empty bottles.
  • Ten 10 of 12
    There's always someone who can only stay on his feet by steadying himself on a piece of furniture.
  • Eleven 11 of 12
    When that guy goes in for a kiss, it's going to be open mouthed and slobbery.
  • Twelve 12 of 12
    Someone will pass out on the couch, but insist they are ready to party as soon as you try to get them to bed.
