Either for work or fun, I have drawn every day for as long as I can remember. When in 2012 I gave birth to our newborn baby, it was very natural for me to reach for a pencil and do my funny doodles. It was a wonderful, magical, challenging, knackering first year.

Each day of being a mom seemed to bring with it a new challenge or breathtaking developmental milestone. I didn’t want to forget any of it, even the silliest everyday problems. I’d scribble things down as my baby napped. It was often cathartic to make light of situations that were often challenging at the time. By the end of the first year of having a child, I realized I had amassed quite a pile of funny drawings. Badgered by friends and family, I decided to try and get them published and tell my story of raising a kid.

This should be a problem. We shouldn't have rights to breastfeed in public because of some button hurt people
