Mother Chronicles Her First Year as a Parent with Brutally Honest Illustrations

Publish date:

Lucy Scott, a Scottish illustrator has created a series of brilliant doodles that perfectly sum up the challenges and joys of being a parent. Titled Doodle Diary of a New Mom, the simple doodles cover the daily struggles and not so glamorous parts of parenthood.

Trying to get out of the house...

And when you do make it out of the door, plenty of amazing adventures await.

How date nights go after having a baby.

Car journeys and traffic jams just got a whole lot worse.

There is a lot of training involved. Some of it worse than others...

The struggle is always real.

But despite all the struggles, there is always some hope!
