Nathalie Jomard is a lot of things. She's a French author and illustrator with a master's degree in digital communication and a second diploma in political science, but above all, she's a mom. After having kids, Nathalie started illustrating her everyday life of being a mother and her adorable comics are so accurate, it's hilarious.

And the operating theatre lives up to its name as a theatre. Add to the usual healthcare team the students and there we are mommies: live educational audio-visual aid for the teaching facility.

"My daughter is a nerd. A very, very smart, quiet, and somewhat clumsy girl. She's always reading a book and she's also a scatterbrain just like her mother. My son is a nerd too but in a different way than his sister. He is also very active and turbulent. He can’t stay still. He’s always jumping and running around, and he talks a lot. Really, he can't stop talking. A real chatterbox. He's always inventing something, drawing weird devices and talking about them for hours and hours." Nathalie said the two of them are also very curious about everything around them.

Around 35 I started getting my sun spots/age spots. They're large and plentiful. Makes me wish I had cared about sunscreen before the age of 30.

In the UK a child old enough to move under their own steam won't be able to get their fingers in a socket. The holes are very small and have a protective flap inside that only lifts when the longer pin on the socket is pushed in. They are very safe.

I'd say, if you can't, you can't, and anyone complaining can shove it... Doctors don't care, and Hubby can be patient and/or respectful.

And that's why I have a spare of my sons favourite stuffed animal. When the first was loved to death and lost an eye he was very happy with the spare. I had the original repaired by a friend, who buffed up the body and made an eye patch for it. Then I told my boy the stuffed cat (called miauwtje) went missing for a whole week, but that it now returned as Pirate Miauwtje, and he had a lot of stories to tell. Now my boy tells me tales of the adventures Pirate Miauwtje went through.

Damn. I thought baby and toddler mess was insane. I'd give anything for them (all teenagers) to make as much mess as they did as littlies. My house is a pig sty, thanks teens. Even me working full time and offering them money to clean up their shit is impossible
