I don’t know a lot about most things, and I’m not going to be smarter than Momo forever, but this? Right now? When it’s 11PM and I’m telling her that she needs to stop stalling and just go to sleep, or she’s going to feel sick tomorrow? If she could just believe me on this ONE thing, our days would be a lot happier.

I actually got a glimpse of my good, well-mannered child last week – because we started putting her to bed an hour early, just because. She doesn’t know time. And it WORKED! She woke up in the morning refreshed, using full sentences, saying please and thank you, putting on her own clothes and everything. I forget, as she gets older, that she’s still growing, and she can’t just squash the fatigue down like an adult does. It just overflows into her whole personality. Man, those were a good few days. We haven’t been able to keep it up because, you know, life, but… yeah. Amazing, they’re happier when you fix what’s troubling them. Who would have thought?!

I’ll be at ECCC this weekend! The promised land! Come see me and Kev (and my shiny new banner) at AA1 in the Artist Alley! <3

The draw to win an Aspen Tyke Traveler diaper bag ends soon! Everyone who has a pledge on Patreon go through successfully on March 1 will be entered to win one, with an additional entry for every $5 of the pledge amount. The bag was generously donated by our Aspen Tyke friends (who also give out little How Baby comics with every bag!).

Patreon is a platform where you can support your favorite artists by pledging a small amount every month. How Baby is ad-free and supported entirely by patrons, and even small pledges add up to go a long way towards keeping gas in this bus. I try not to honk on it too much (you go blind if you do that, they say), but NOW is the perfect time to pledge if you were waiting!
