Our 9-month-old baby is growing and getting more active. He keeps us on our toes and give me material for my cartoons, more than ever.

Here's a selection of some of my latest drawings depicting daily life with our baby. From breastfeeding to eating solids, from going out in the baby carrier, to staying in at home. Can you relate?

#4 True Story, Because I'm Lazy And Washing The French Press Sucks

True Story, Because I'm Lazy And Washing The French Press Sucks

I've never even tried the french press thing, and my son is 24. I started drinking instant coffee at work, because the cafeteria coffee sucked horribly. Then I started liking the instant better than the "drip" coffee (which began tasting too watered-down when I was used to the heartiness of instant)... now I drink instant at home all the time. I even bought an electric teapot to boil the water for it (much hotter than using the drip machine to make hot water - and both faster & quieter than a regular whistling kettle). Plus, I can have coffee any time, anywhere... all I need is a cup of hot water if I'm out. I bring my own milk & sugar in a small lunch cooler!!

That means he's getting tired... so stop feeding him so close to nap or bed time.

My answer would be "No, but then, neither am I... we just like the look." Then while she's turning purple, move on. ;)

"Why - were you planning to buy one?" Just turn it right back to them. They never expect that!!

Yep... mine did. I had to schedule his bath immediately after dinner, then spend an hour reading to him, etc. At that point he would still say he wasn't tired, so I learned a trick that worked every night for years... I put an old TV in his room with a VCR attached (this was in the 90's - now you could do a DVD player or Netbook w/Netflix and a monitor)... I'd make him a deal that he could watch any Disney movie he wanted, as long as he stayed in bed and didn't get up for anything. EVERY night, he'd be asleep within 15 mins of me putting that movie on. It worked like a charm, and we never had bedtime battles!!

I thought they were funny and so true! I liked the style of the cartoons. They are original and unique. I'd love to see more.
