The birth of a new baby is indisputably miraculous, but the demands are daunting, making the first year as exhausting as it is exhilarating. Pride and joy jostle with sleep deprivation, frantic scheduling, marital issues, and work pressures. Despite all this, you can see the funny side of motherhood. Here are 5 doodles that perfectly illustrate a mom’s first year!
1. So Close, Yet So Far
Ahh, baby is happily breastfeeding, time to do some quality surfing … oh wait. What a cruel, cruel world.
Moms are so resourceful, aren’t they? At least when it comes to getting their hands (or feet) on their phone.
3. Road Trip!
No matter how bad a baby feels strapped in the back of the car, for the mom it’s far worse, pure torture — all the while praying she won’t crash.
4. So Much For Romance
Once you’re a mom, date nights aren’t about dinners and dancing. They’re about one thing: catching up on sleep.
5. Mom Makeover
Yup, that’s most moms to a tee, from the half-shampooed hair down to the vomit-stained PJ bottoms. Isn’t motherhood just the best?
