I know, there will be a lot of broken hearts ahead of us. Sigh. But, also so many joyful happy moments! Like when this kid decides it's time to give kisses in bulk. Or the way he head-bangs to any kind of music, even the coffee grinder or dishwasher (his dad's hardcore influence, I'm sure.) Or the way he goes into this zen trance anytime we're outside, just soaking in every speck of nature in those moments. And then goes crazy and tries to eat the flowers. There's far more happy than sad. But the sad... man, it can really crush a mom! 

Okay! If you like comics like these, check out my book Hey Baby which is available in my store, or also now at the Multnomah County Library! Happy!
