Mom Illustrates What It’s Really Like To Have Kids In 25 Honest Comics

Published 6 years ago

If your mom didn’t complain every single day about the hardships you have provided her with while growing up, then she’s a real trooper. Because I bet she had loads of inspiration for complaints, enough so she could draw a whole series of illustrations depicting an honest truth about motherhood.

That’s what Nathalie Jomard did, a French artist who’s also a mom, which puts her in a first-person view of these everyday situations that would test out even the strongest will.

Do any of these ring a bell to you? Let’s share our experiences in the comments!
