Katie Kirby, a 35-year-old British Mom of two, illustrates her daily parenting struggles in brutally honest, yet hilarious, cartoons. She started her blog about parenting in July 2013 to keep herself busy after the birth of her second son.

"I get a lot of messages and emails from people saying that they had a bad day, but after reading my blog they were able to laugh about it and feel relieved others were going through the same too," she said. "People shouldn't feel like they are a rubbish parent just because they had to drag their kid kicking and screaming out of Tesco's. It happens to the best of us!"

This assumes that once the kids are in bed, there aren't 27 piles of laundry, a sink full of dirty dishes, spilled juice on the kitchen floor, and a dog covered in a rainbow of sidewalk chalk that all need to be dealt with before the parents (or mom) can even sit down, let alone fall asleep (anywhere).

Reminds me of a hitch-hiking experience once. Back in highschool, some classmates and I got a ride from a lady and her little boy, who kept telling his mother things like: "Mom! Mom! Crush that other car's rearview mirror!" and such stuff he probably saw in action films.

They look for mummy when she's busy but they won't show up when they're doing something else but mum needs them.

My daughter does this every single day! She won't dinner because for dinner is not food and then ask for a dessert, I tell her she can't have one if she does not eat, then she would choose the small bread I put on the side of her plate, eat it and tell me "I had dinner now dessert".
