What the kids said

A little while ago I had a particularly bad day with my kids, culminating in a full-on screaming tantrum (kids, not me for once) in the park. Later when they'd gone to bed, I sketched what had happened in my sketchbook, (therapy I think). Although it was a record of what had been a very dark day, when I saw it as a drawing I had to laugh. Anyhow, things have got a bit easier since then, but I've carried on drawing the things they do. I thought I'd share them with other mums, just for fun. Click on the links to see a few. I'll add more as I do them.

PLEASE keep posting these. They're fab! I propose a Mumsnet Cartoon Strip using your wondeful talent grin

grin Excellent cat's bum reference there.

These are really good! My favourite was Granny's Loo. You should start putting them on a website, like a blog or something, I would follow it.

"Mummay... when Grannie was a little girl, did she play with Jesus?"
