The arrival of the first baby is necessarily, for a couple, a extraordinary adventure. Extraordinary but full of fears and a plunge into the unknown that brings a natural desire to do everything right ... sometimes with a tip of excess which we realize a little later, with the arrival of the second child for example.
And if you are passionate about the subject, you will love the illustrations of the artist we are going to tell you about. Her name isWeng Chen, is from China but lives at United States for a few years. This young woman, mother of two little girls, had fun of her mom's experience to create comicsMessycow.
Messycow, these are simple and very funny drawings that showcase family adventures and some of them talk about this difference in behavior of moms between their first and second child. Willingness to have the purest of rdietary requirements in a state of ecstasy when baby realizes its first construction with bricks, it presents scenes that you have probably already lived(where you may be living soon) by putting them in relation with the same scene ... after the arrival of the second baby.
It's full of humor, truth, it's beautifully drawn family cartoon so we love it! We recommend you to discover the other drawings of the artist on his site Messycow or follow her on her Facebook page or his twitter account.
