The Phone Knows

  Sorry, I don’t have a Father’s Day cartoon this year. Father’s Day cartoons are hard, man. So many dad jokes are more or less “hurr hurr! Dads are dumb!” And that doesn’t reflect my experience with my husband. He’s actually a very funny person, but hard to do relatable ...

The Circumcision Debate

I didn’t make this comic to get involved in the circumcision debate. In fact, I’m not going to tell you whether or not my son is circumcised. That’s why I made this cartoon. I get that people feel strongly about circumcision on both sides of the debate. And I’m not ...

Goldfish

I’ve mentioned before that my son is a picky eater. One of the most unhelpful pieces of advice I’ve heard is “toddlers are good at regulating their own nutrition.” People who say this either a.) Know nothing about toddlers or b.) Know nothing about nutrition. My son would eat ice ...

Mom Weight Loss Routine

It is harder to lose weight after kids, and it makes zero sense. I eat less food than I ever did (because my kid steals it), I think I’m just as or more active, but I still hover in around 5lbs over my pre-baby weight. I know, 5 lbs more ...

Those Fast Food Tube Play Area Things

I took my son to a McDonald’s with a Playland in it for the first time the other day. It’s not that I’m a snob who doesn’t eat fast food ever. We just don’t have many Fast Food places with play areas in my area. Also, it’s been raining non-stop ...

Girls’ Day Out!

I actually haven’t done this with a friend in the car yet, but I’m sure it’s coming. I don’t know how many times I’ve gone out, sans baby, and not realized I’ve been rocking out to his music for a solid half hour. I don’t *think* I’ve ever made it ...

A Beautiful Moment

My son loves reading. He brings me books all the time. ALL the time. And as soon as I take the book from him, he plops he little butt right in my lap. It’s adorable. Except when he brings books into the bathroom. The other thing he does in the ...

False Positive

Ah, I’m finally doing a puke comic. I knew I’d find something funny about it. This really happened, by the way. When my son first got sick, I was feeling a little queasy. I spent an entire day thisclose to buying a pregnancy test because I was convinced our birth ...

Taking the Baby to Disney World

Yep. We were those people. We took a fifteen month old to Disney World. My husband had a conference down there, we had some frequent flyer miles so we figured – why not? And actually, it went really well. Well-behaved babies aren’t funny, so I changed some stuff for the ...

Wine Pairings for Toddler Tantrums

Oddly enough, I’m not really a big drinker. I mean, I do drink, but I prefer beer, and I really don’t know anything about wine. I actually had to Google the spellings of all these wines, and then I had to Google again to see what color they all were. ...
