When you become a parent, your whole world circles around your newborn. You experience a lot of things and sometimes you feel like you’re the only one going through all that lovely mess that a child can create. But if you’ve felt alone so far, you won’t anymore after you check out these lovely comics below by Héloïse Weiner.
She is an artist who decided to share her experience as a mom through her comics. After she had her second child, she started to use all those snippets of her family into short comics, and it was a surprise to her how many people out there were able to relate to her, having the exact same situation with their kids.

1. When the kids are bored.
“Most people tell me they can relate to the situations I draw, which creates a community spirit. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one going through these things, and I think it’s nice for other mothers to realize we actually all know what it’s like. We have good days and bad days, sometimes kids are hilarious and other times the sweetest ever, and other times you wonder if they have a brain. It’s so much fun,” said Weiner for Earthwonders.
Now a mom of six kids, she still continues doing her funny comics. Knowing the challenges of both parenting and working at the same time, the artist told us how she manages to keep a balance between both.

“I only do my comics when my husband is home to look after the kids (we both work part-time!) I couldn’t find the time without him,” explained Héloïse.
With the children being the source of her inspiration, we can say as a mother of six she will never fail to amuse us with her comics.
“I love being a mum. All my comics are based on real-life anecdotes and my kids never fail to inspire me haha,” added Héloïse.
