I've been drawing comics about life as a dad since my son was born three years ago. I use it as a visual journal (that I ultimately want to gift to my kid!), where I try to capture a moment a day.

When I started this journey of parenthood, I had no idea what I was doing. And after three years, I still sort of have no idea what I'm doing...but I do know parenting is as tough as it is rewarding.

So if you're parent, kudos to you! And if you're not a parent, well then tell your mom or dad kudos to them!

You can follow along with our adventures on Instagram, Facebook, or my website.

I hope all parents will let their kids wear whatever they want most the time, (if it's weather appropriate that is!!) It's such a great way for them to express themselves and be creative. I don't have kids, but I'm an artistic person, and it would be nice if children weren't forced to conform.

Apparently when I was a toddler I insisted on wearing my snowsuit into the mall and I wouldn't take no for an answer. So my parents let me in order for me to learn my lesson the hard way

I frequently let me daughter go out places in her princess dresses and rainbow heart rain boots, she likes to wear them and I'm not about to limit her self expression .

I can remember being a toddler, and trying to communicate as people failed to understand me much of the time, which was very frustrating! I remember watching a soap opera, and although it was in English I couldn't follow a word of it. I could follow many things my family said tho.

It seems like vacationing with kids would be more stressful than just staying home.

I pack very tight, or very loose, so this image, if I was the father, everything I need is a blanket, pillow, food, and a backpack of clothes, but toddlers think they have to bring EVERYTHING, EVEN THE F***ING CRIB

Yep..I agree. Coffee is a food group all on it's own. Why do you think there are so many different flavors of creamers....

I had my child three years ago and my mom told me to never have her sleep in my bed, because she'd get used to it and then it'd be so difficult to get her to sleep in her own bed. Let me tell you, I regret listening. A lot of times I wish my daughter would want to sleep in my bed with me. I work all day, and she goes to sleep early at night so I barely see her :( cuddles at night would be nice. But she's so used to sleeping in her own bed, she doesn't ever want to sleep in mine. Trust me OP, you're lucky!
