Hello! Welcome to the deep innermost thoughts of my mothering experience. Sometimes serious, sometimes funny and hopefully occasionally relatable. Tell me it's not just me!

I started drawing these to keep my creativity alive while I was on maternity leave with my second child. It was a way to document my observations, my thoughts and the ridiculous things my kids did and said (because with the little sleep I was getting there was no way I would remember it all). It's now become a more public project with mums from all over the world nodding along and saying ‘me too’.

I hope these drawings bring a smile to other parents' faces and let everyone know that they aren’t alone.

Same with dogs (no, I'm not saying babies are like dogs, there was a similar comic here with a dog)

"Charlie and Lola" gave me an accent when I was little.

"Take better care of myself" We always seem to put that on the back burner.

With the first baby, it's every "word" they utter, every new tooth, when you trim their nails, cut their hair...

I always locked the door. This has always been a line for me. I pee alone! Sometimes, with 4 girls in 5 years, it was the only quiet time I got all day! That 2 minutes of peace kept me going for another hour before I took another bathroom break.

Many parents quickly feel the need to protect their newborn child, but that is not the same thing as bonding and loving. Many parents (mothers especially) feel guilty if they don't experience this instant love rush, that they heard so much about, but it's totally normal. It can take time to bond and start having true and deep feelings of love for your baby and that's OK.

Leaving my son at daycare and he's be screaming, crying -- driving to work I'd have to pull the car over I'd be sobbing, call the daycare, "Oh, he stopped right after you left."
