Sometimes, you just have to laugh at the comedy that is being a parent.
As Mother's Day approaches, I wanted to share some of my favorite illustrators who are capturing the motherhood experience in all the best ways, from the comical and mundane to the heartfelt. These women make me laugh on the daily, and frankly, I need more of that in my Instagram feed.
Being a mother is a million different emotions all wrapped into one. I love when I can see a relatable experience conveyed through art, because it reaffirms my belief that we are all in this together. Yes, everyone is different, but the shared experience of motherhood is a collective feeling. And sometimes we just need to laugh at this journey we're on, especially on social media, when so much of my scrolling depicts perfect homes with perfect-looking children and you guessed it, perfectly-styled mamas. Here's to artists who keep it real (and keep me laughing)!
These illustrators are capturing motherhood in hilarious and poignant ways, and I am here for their content in my Instagram feed.
On Sunday evenings, my dishwasher is filled almost entirely with cups.
Standards may change from child to child, and that's perfectly okay, mama.
This artist might be from Norway, but her drawings are every mama, everywhere.
So. relatable. I get so much more satisfaction out of buying stuff for my kids than I do myself!
Isn't that the truth. Your body might not ever be quite the same, and your heart just gets bigger and bigger.
This couldn't be any more accurate if you put an actual photo of my face in this illustration.
I'm actually wondering if Gina has secretly recorded my morning getting dress routine?
