I started drawing My Tired Mommy illustrations not long after giving birth to my first son. As a fresh, overwhelmed mom on maternity leave, this was my way to express the struggles, frustrations, absurdity and humor that I often found in many of these new situations.
Sharing these with my friends on Facebook, I received amazing responses from many moms who've been through similar experiences and related to the sentiment. So I decided to make it into a comic strip and publish it regularly in social media.
I often touch those sensitive (sometimes even taboo) topics such as breastfeeding, career life, relationship with spouse, extended family and their holier than thou views on raising a baby, and of course - lack of sleep and its effect on the mind and body.
I hope you will find my illustrations funny and relatable, maybe even annoying. Just remember - we're not perfect. We're mommies!

I can relate to that :) Just have a looooong hot shower. It gets better, I promise!
Nobody tells you that before the kids...
That is one fat pigeon
There is much truth to this, but still, the journey is absolutely worth it. Those who say, holidays with kids will never be the same are right. Those who say, holidays with kids aren't holidays anymore might be either unlucky or have the wrong approach, though!
Lol, I am a grandma and I did the same last weekend while babysitting my grandchild. Unfortunately, I didn't have this nice baby carrier so I still have a lame arm :)
I'm like this all the time.. gosh.. I want to let go but her crying really, really just breaks me.
I don't get this one....I don't have children but I can at least understand the others this went over my head
