Mom Marathon 1

If you haven't heard, I'm doing a mom marathon. 26 mothers before mother's day will appear on the blog.

Why? Because I hate mother's day. Hate it. I hated it before I had kids and figured I'd learn to like it when I became a mom. Nope. I hate it even more. So I figured I'd start a project that would keep me distracted from the awful day. Now every time the subject of mother day comes up I can spend the time thinking about how I plan to draw someone instead of listening to the awful songs, poems, tributes - blah

Mom 1: my sister. She's a mom. I think she might be my son's favorite mom. Her daughter is hilarious. And she was nice enough to help me through the first rough colicky nights with baby Miriam. She took a 3am-6am shift. She's that amazing.


  1. I love this SO much. I thought it was funny that you mentioned that night where Miriam and I bonded- I guess those crazy newborn nights become pretty emblazoned in a mother's memory! I think you might be Eliza's favorite mom, as well. And I like mother's day less now than before I was a mother- kind of ironic. I think it has to do with the expectation of what mother's day should be and what it ends up being like instead...
