Ode to XKCD

My favorite webcomic is XKCD. He’s not not always G-rated, but I really appreciate his alternate views on life.

I especially appreciate his views on parenting.

Basically, it’s the same views of parenting that the Bean and I share.

This view of raising children is basically known as the “We’ve got a baby. Crap. Now what?” parenting method.

As you can see, this comic illustrates how I basically feel about being given a little human to raise. It’s an awful lot of responsibility for someone who never managed to finish building the Lego castle.

I keep waiting for it to feel natural, for my inner parent to rise up and shine.

After all, parenting should come naturally, right? I mean, people have been doing it for millenia. Just quit worrying, go with your instincts, and everything should turn out okay.

Unfortunately, XKCD made a rather true-to-life webcomic about this, too:


Anyways, it’s my favorite time day (DRAGONMONKEY BEDTIME! WOO-HOO!!!!), so I’m off to go cook a delicious, from-scratch meal for my beloved husband.

Well, either that or I’m going to go order pizza. I’ll let you guys decide which is more likely.

Oh, and, Aarenex?

This one’s for you.

  1. As soon as I finish LAUGHING MY BUTT OFF , I am going to send this to all my (librarian) friends!!!!

    Thanks, gal. You rock.

    And when you join us on the Dark Side, I will bring cookie crumbs to sprinkle in the spine of your first edition of Mockingjay. Because, my dear, you WILL be a librarian some day.

    It is your destiny.


  2. It's refreshing to hear that not everyone takes to parenting like a duck to water. Most would insist that it's the most instinctive thing in the world.
