This is not happening.

Brexit has happened. Many of us who didn't want to leave the EU have been left speechless by the result.

But you know who's good at expressing how they feel?

Babies, y'all.

So for those of us who can't yet find the words, here are the 13 stages of how we got here, illustrated by the little tots.

1. The determination to get out and vote, despite the apocalyptic weather.
