“Soaking” is Elliot’s preferred adjective to describe any extreme state of being covered in something. He has, at various times this summer, been soaking dirty, soaking muddy, soaking hot, and soaking sweaty. Ok, that last one kind of makes sense.

I hit a kid.

I felt like I needed to do an update on yesterday’s comic immediately after I drew it because it seemed I was coming off as a controlling butthead.

You could probably change “bad at baby small talk” to just “bad at small talk of any kind.” Honestly, I went into school for the first time yesterday and I couldn’t believe how awkward I was, talking to adults. That’s what an entire summer of talking to/with a 2 year old’ll do to ya.

“Sy-sa coco-na” is something Elliot was saying a lot last month. I wanted to write it down to remember it. I think it’s his version of  a line from the song “Lime in the Coconut” from The Muppet Show.

He’s moved on to being obsessed with Lady Gaga since then.

I’ve become incredibly self-conscious about posting comics about my kids, if only because I’m afraid I’m going to start coming across as a low rent Bil Keane. I’ll just say this one and sort of move on with my life: The comics over the next few days come from my journal. I’m sharing them because people seem to like them, but a lo to the strips from this week and next week are meant more for my personal memories.

I didn’t know scooping out the inside of a bagel was a “thing” that people did.

For the next few weeks, I’m going to be posting some sketchbook journal comics I did on our two week trip back to the East Coast. The first couple are from the time we spent in New York and the rest are from our real vacation down on Long Beach Island in New Jersey. These are from my sketchbook, so they don’t have the normal polish and shine (ha!) of my teaching comics. Fairly warned, be ye.

Actually, these first two are from the day and a half I spent hanging out with Melissa in Hoboken, so I guess most of ’em are Jersey-related in some way.
