More hilarious parenting cartoons worth following and reading

If there's one thing that's needed to get through parenting fairly happily, it's a sense of humour. Along the way I've featured hilarious parentig cartoons that one can easily relate to and find humour in, and last month I wrote about cartoonist and mom of two Adrienne Hedger and her parenting cartoons, "Hedger Humor".

Here are some other great ones:

Have a look at one mom’s brilliant parenting cartoons (I’m sure we can all relate)

Cartoonist and mom of two Adrienne Hedger nails it with her parenting cartoons, "Hedger Humor". While her daughters are 10 and 13, she still includes cartoons relating to raising younger kids, and she's spot on. All the time. 

Adrienne's cartoons are featured on her websiteand social media pages every week. She’s also published illustrated books about parenting, including MomnesiaThe World According to Toddlers and If These Boobs Could Talk.

Have a look at some of her work:

Moms – you need to see these emojis that brilliantly sum up motherhood

EmojiMom is something I never knew I *needed*, but now that I know about it, I really need AND want it. For the first time, there's an emoji app that expresses all things related to motherhood – from being dilated, to having breastfeeding woes, to going back to work. (1)

Available from iTunes for R37.99, the EmojiMom app gives you access to 250+ mom-themed emoji, from pregnancy, adoption and birth to infancy and onwards. New emoji are being added all the time, so install now to help share your parenting journey.

EmojiMom works similarly to other third-party keyboards. Simply press on the emoji you would like to send to copy it, and paste it into your messaging application. EmojiMom works in text conversations, Snapchat (chat), Twitter, iMessage, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

Sarah Robinson, who co-founded the app with friends Natalie Ralston and Hannah Hudson, says the inspiration for the emoji came when she was texting other moms after a trying morning with her son. 

"I was getting ready for work — one of my first days back from maternity leave — and my baby peed all over my work outfit," said Sarah. "It was such a hilarious, frustrating, OK-I-might-break-down-and-cry kind of moment that I texted Hannah and Natalie about it and we all said, 'Seriously, there ought to be an emoji to describe this feeling.'"

Since there wasn't an app at the time, Sarah and her friends partnered with an illustrator, Lauren Burke, to create an emoji keyboard that would provide new moms with an honest portrayal of motherhood, to enable moms to have a great way to express what they're going through, via their cellphones.

This video was published last week, and it seems everyone who has seen it is raving about it.

It features Australian comedy duo Hamish Blake and Andy Lee, who have created a hilarious hotline for parents. Hamish and Andy's Parent Fantasy Hotline, in which Hamish, father of Sonny, plays a new parent calling a pay-per-minute hotline. The phone operator,Andy, speaks about his child-free lifestyle, which turns Hamish on.

Watch this for laughter.


Norwegian mom creates brilliant pregnancy cartoons

Norwegian mother and illustrator Line Severinsen hits the mark with her outstanding pregnancy comics Kos og Kaos (“Cuddles and Chaos”).

The cartoons depict what every pregnant mom, or someone close to a pregnant mom can relate to – body changes, cravings and those times where everyone just wants to touch your stomach.

Severinsen began drawing her pregnancy cartoons in 2012 when she was pregnant with her first child and continued illustrating during her second pregnancy this year, starting a Facebook page and building a following on social media.




Severinsen told Babble:

“I hope that my drawings show that you aren’t alone! The reason why I made the comic and why it is resonating with so many people all over the world is that we all go through some pretty weird stuff that you won’t find in the regular mommy magazines and books.”
