How Baby #98: Embrace It
KEV GOT HIS HAIR CUT. WE NO LONGER MATCH.
RANDOM STRANGERS WILL NO LONGER COMMENT ON US, HALLELUJAH.
Anyway, take a fun story about dad jokes and turn it into a slight dig at the [sparklehands] patriarchy; no one can say I’m not on brand. But seriously, this is something Kev really fought at first, because the last thing he wanted was to be the dumb dad stereotype who’s only good for a lark and “haha, isn’t it so funny that he doesn’t know how to change a diaper???” But while I got cute colloquialisms like ‘mom and tot’ classes and ‘mother’s choice’ brands and ‘mother knows best’, mostly primarily caring and skill-related phrases, he got… dad jokes. And dad bod, but that came later. Hmm.

ALSO also, it’s almost ECCC weekend! So if you’re in the Seattle area and headed there too, please stop by my table at H9 and say hello (especially if you have baaaaaybeeeeeez, because Momo will be at home and I will be missing her like crazy!)
Also also, one more also, How Baby will be on a very short hiatus during ECCC weekend; this’ll let me get ducks in order for the biggest show of the year, plus make sure the hundredth strip (!!!!!) is gonna be awesome – otherwise, it was gonna fall the Monday right after I return, y i k e s. Plus, all this convention prep has been destroying my wrist! So this’ll be the last strip until next Thursday, when it’ll return as normal. See you on the other side!
