Lunarbaboon, by Christopher Grady

Schoolteacher and dad Christopher Grady writes poignant and hilarious cartoons about life as a parent.  He has collected some of the best in Lunarbaboon: The Daily Life of Parenthood.  If you're a dad, you will totally relate to his everyday dad stories.

Like many dads, Grady sometimes gets annoyed with his family.  But those moments are quickly and regularly outweighed by the delight he enjoys by simply being together.  I know I have been there.

For a young guy (Grady is in his 30s), he conveys a high degree of angst at seeing his family time fly by.  Kids grow up fast, and those memories fade.  He reminds us to cherish every day and experience life together with relish.

Families are weird.  They laugh when we fart.  (OK, I'm including myself and Grady in that 'we' but I strongly suspect you are right there with us!)

Check out Grady's cartoons, and you might see yourself, your dad, and your family here.  His cartoons are funny and moving at the same time.

PSA for parents: kids are listening to everything.  And they remember.
