Diary Comics, Dec. 3-5

Here are some more comics from when I was guest-blogging here last fall! (Previously.) Should I be sharing these in a newsletter again? I don’t know, maybe so!

I don't know about the rest of you, but I always pick out my favorite panel from Edith's posts and today there's a three-way tie: a triumph of dressing, the ultrasound face, and the final panel. Parenting: never not overwhelming.

I came in here to post how beautiful the last panel is.

As a parent of two, these feel so real to me and I teared up a bit reading this post

So much love for how earnest and real these are and have been.

Also, on the longer posts the little "see it all" button scrolls down to the bottom as it opens (Firefox on mac) rather than leaving me where I was. Feels like when Netflix inadvertently skips to the end of the show and you have to only vaguely peek as you rewind for fear of spoiling what is to come.

So beautiful. Thanks for sharing.


So much of this rings true! Triumph of dressing, the last panel.

I am really struck by how you drew your own eyes in the panel, "It felt good to be outside." Lovely!

I can absolutely relate when seeing our child in the 3D model they showed us from the ultrasound - I was blown away and it really did make things very real from that point. Beautiful comics as always!

These are so nice to read. Thank you so much.

Our trampoline is still in the living room after 4-5 years and still used fairly regularly. It's such a pain to fold up that we just leave it there all the time now.
