I thought I wouldn’t get to do this idea for a comic for another three years, but you know strong and stable government and elections every two years can be great for comic artists! HA! As usual with my Ninja Dad (or in this case Ninja Mum) stuff this is inspired by a real life question asked by our son on polling day five two years ago. As way of explanation, Morecambe is a town just up the road. A kid’s sense of geography is quite entertaining though I think we’re just about there in having him understand what England is… I think.

Another one for the scrap book. In my defence I honestly believed that shouting WEEEEEE as we went down the hill would distract him from his desperate need to relieve himself. I’m not sure at what point I realised that I’d seriously put my foot in it… probably the death stare from my wife gave it away. To his credit when we finally reached our destination our little man had managed to hold it in 🙂 despite all the screaming.
It was a lovely summer’s day in 2015. We’d had a wonderful time at a country park and were setting off for home with our 2 yr old in tow. We’d done the obligatory departure checks: seat belts, snacks, toilets etc. nothing was going to stop us now… except, of course, motorway traffic. (more…)
A few weeks ago, our son managed to get out of bed without waking his sister up and wake me up without waking up his mum up… quite the achievement! Well, as we were trying to sneak down stairs to get breakfast I tried to communicate the above instruction. I’m not sure how we went from Ninja to Badger… but I soon found out that my son’s interpretation of a Badger is actually quite quiet.(more…)
You know how last time I said that our son can give us a hard time sometimes. Well this was one of them, or at least I was trying to give him hard time, I don’t even remember why. But of course, when you’re in the middle of it and then you get told that you’ve got a bogey it’s pretty hard to keep going… at all… without screaming or breaking down in laughter (for the record, the latter was my response). So yes, kids have made our 2015!
