Lucy Knisley is a cartoonist and one of those magical moms. She draws adorable illustrations about her life as a mother to a 10-month old baby boy that she calls Pal (short for "Palindrome," because his birthday was a palindrome date). It's not the real name of the adorable one, but Lucy did not want to subject him to Internet name recognition.

Lucy explores various topics about how a child might affect your life - from sleepless nights to friends and fears.

Take a look at some of her comics and vote for your favorite ones.

When I get a baby I will definitely do this when my wife least expect it. It will make her either laugh or drive her insane!... But first I need a wife.

Ha! Every mother I've met is like "When they go to sleep, we have to be extra quiet because I need that time alone for once".
