This is a repost because I have been absolutely head down in commissions and every time I go to draw a new cartoon I have to give myself a little talking to and go back to the commissions. This was very relevant to my day. Two sick kiddos. An impatient headspace because my mind is slightly distracted with my ‘to-do’ list. A very short nap from the toddler. Even the four year old was annoyed he didn’t get his ‘me time’ before she woke up. So when things got a bit tense we went into the garden and I was aware my neighbour was in hers. It’s amazing how well you parent when you think someone can hear you. It forced me to be patient when the two of them fought over who got to use the broom (even though there are two identical brooms.) I took the time to come up with relatively sensible answers to a string of questions about whether mosquitos can see through glass. It really did turn things around. I would love to know your disaster day survival tips. I'll be including some in my book.

My expectation of what fatherhood would look like was as wildly inaccurate as my expectations of motherhood. . I had imagined you teaching them to ride bikes, piggy back rides in the garden and adventures by the sea. I never released I would get greater joy from you disappearing for two hours with them and coming home with a car full of groceries and content, fed children. . I thought being a dad meant teaching the mechanics of standing up to wee.  I didn’t realise, after a few months of toilet training challenges, it would mean sending me to a girlfriend’s house with a bottle of champagne on a Friday night while you set an alarm and every ten minutes for three hours sat patiently in the bathroom by your small son’s side waiting for the magic to happen. . We planned on sharing night feeds, you armed with a bottle, but both our children had different ideas. What I didn’t expect was that during those lonely nights that seem to go on forever, after the third consecutive hour of attempting to feed a baby to sleep it meant I could hand you our restless daughter and you would hold her warm and safe in your arms to snooze until the sun rose in the morning.

If you’ve been following me for a while you would have seen this one before. It’s the drawing that started it all! I’ve just reworked it for my book so thought it was worth posting again. 18 months on and it’s still how I feel daily. Maybe even hourly. Sometimes they are suffocating. But damn it, they smell so good! In the early days I did feel a lot of guilt about wanting space. Not so much anymore. Partly because of this amazing community and the response to this drawing. I realised that it was OK and NORMAL to feel this way. I also now know, that the part of me that needs space, is a major part of my identity. I need space to create and think and draw and exercise and sometimes even have a shower. And in the future I hope my kids are proud of me for those things (well, maybe not the shower part, even if that sometimes does feel like a big achievement!)
