Parenting is a journey for the parents just as much as for their little ones, and Chris Grady is drawing and sharing his in a brilliant comic called Lunarbaboon. By focusing on a small family's adventures, the series spots and highlights humor in simple everyday situations. It also touches some sensitive and dark(er) subjects but does so in a way that feels sincere and, eventually, ends on a postive note.

"Lunarbaboon was created as a way for me to combat my anxiety and depression," Grady writes. The father of a 7-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter thinks it's impossible not to be influenced by everything around you. "There is a lot of bad things happening in the world, but there is also a lot of good," he told HuffPost. "I am very lucky to be married to a very smart, strong, opinionated person who is constantly fighting against injustice. A lot of what she and I talk about on a daily basis makes it into the comics."

Our education system is horrible. It discourages creating and discovery and being wrong. It beats creativity out of kids even though most subjects can be made super interesting if presented properly. I hated school but would go home and watch discovery channel all afternoon.

As long as the kids enjoys it, the dad (/ a parent) does too! Seeing your kids enjoying / having fun is the best there is! Next to snuggle-time!

When playing with little kids, they always have a different set of mind. Tea Party: evil master plan. Playing with ponies: Planet of the Equine

I don't get why people do this. It's very dishonest and nobody wins. You can tell someone you don't like the meal without making them feel like they're a bad person. Just be objective about it and everyone is better off.

So true !!!Stop chasing happiness. It will find you in all the small every day things we take for granted because we are so busy looking for the BIG things.
