Welcome to my blog. Iâ€™ll be adding a post periodically. Each post will center around a few strips or strip series that Iâ€™d like to provide more detail about or a topic that Iâ€™d like to comment on. The goal of this blog is to start a dialog or to share ideas. Some of my best material, in my mind, comes from family/friends who relate personal experiences. Feel free to share your own.
Thanks for all of your support.
Every month or two, I include a strip captioned: â€œThe New and Improved Parentsâ€™ Glossary of Terms.â€ These are dictionary spoofs that offer new definitions to aspects of parenting. This one stems from my bad habit of constantly asking my kids, â€œWhat happened?â€ after they get into an argument, thereby setting off more bickering and finger-pointing. The parenting experts would have my head. Ideas for the â€œGlossary of Termsâ€ are always welcome. If I use your idea, Iâ€™ll be happy to thank you personally in the strip.
Okay, moms. Iâ€™d love to know if youâ€™ve experienced any or all of these hairdo phases. This cartoon was inspired by the memory of my gorgeous pregnancy locks â€” the only thing I miss about pregnancy. The one style I bypassed is the last one (Iâ€™m still stuck in â€œponytailâ€ mode).
My comic strip tends to run on the snarky side. But once in a while I like to balance it with something positive or even sentimental. This strip deals with a subject thatâ€™s constantly on my mind: how grateful I am (knock wood) that I have two physically and emotionally healthy kids.
Iâ€™ve had close friends and family members with health issues, so this is something that I never take for granted and will probably always be paranoid about. To me, my kidsâ€™ well-being is whatâ€™s ultimately important. Iâ€™m sure every parent can relate.
