15 Cartoons New Parents Will Relate To Instantly

When Bonnie Kimmerly was on maternity leave with her first child, she started sketching cartoons about the struggles of new parenthood. Now over a year later, she’s turning those illustrated adventures into a book.

Mama Is Drawing a Blank features Kimmerly’s musings about the first year of motherhood, alongside spot-on cartoons about topics like kid messes, babywearing and mealtime with infants.

“I hope that parents can relate to my stories and realize that they are not alone in their struggles with pregnancy, breastfeeding, sleep, and whatnot,” Kimmerly told The Huffington Post. “I also hope that they can find a moment to laugh and not take everything too seriously.”

Keep scrolling for a sampling of cartoons from Mama Is Drawing A Blank. And visit Kimmerly’s website, Instagram and Facebook page for more parenting art.
