Breakfast convos are my favorite! "Mom, is garorange a word?"
"How about 'door hinge'? Does that rhyme?"
...
Me: "you can't just make up a word to find one that rhymes!" Orange you going to guess what fruit the kids had for breakfast this morning? .

Well, I like to call them pants but maybe that's just me. 
Anyone else's kids sometimes wear their sweaters as pants? 
Just me?

Real people. 
Real conversations. 
I'm just hoping he wasn't in the room at all, but how would I know? 
I didn't see him anywhere.

Proud parent moment!

My 13yo has discovered a hidden talent. This semester he studies music and they now have a RECORDER. 
Bless us all. 
He has been practicing the recorder for many, many unforgettable moments - time that we can never get back; in the car, at the dinner table, while trying to have a conversation, around the house like the Pied Piper from 6am to 8pm. 
Yesterday he took it to a new level and started playing it through his nose. I KNOW! Who knew that he was so very creative?! I am not sure if I should be crying that THIS is what he's decided to focus his free time on or proud of him that he's actually putting effort into something. 
He can also play Mary Had a Little Lamb. 
Through his nose of course. 
SO so proud. . .. . .. . .. #estherssketchbook #illustration #drawing #draw #dailydrawing #sketchdailies #sketchbook #kids #comicstrip #lifewithkids #parentlife #lifeofaparent #parenthumor #parentinghumor #momhumor #cartooning #cartoon #teens #webcomic  #autobiocomics #instacomic #webtoon #cartoonist #cartoonillustration #parenting #parentingftw #music #recorder

One night I was putting #3 (then in Kindergarten) to bed and he told me that a girl in his class wished he was dead. Naturally, I was skeptical and asked him what happened. He then told me that his row neighbor who knew he was allergic to dairy had literally been sticking her lunch cheese on his arm.

I prefer to think she was testing out a scientific hypothesis rather than the idea that she was a ruthless bully preying on my child's compromised immune system in the hopes of causing him imminent peril. 
Possibly the Mama Bear came out a bit. 
Food allergies are serious business. .

I felt pretty cute in my new "flecked kimono cardigan" until I picked the kids up from school, at which point I felt a wee bit self conscious.

Kids have a way of doing that to you. On the plus side they said I was the sensei and they are my ninjas which might come in handy. 
P.s. I can draw myself as young looking as I want.  It's called artistic license. .

Apparently the actor and his sister had an "artistic disagreement" and the show fell apart. 
Naturally we were devastated. 
My youngest is 7 today! He's smart, spunky, hilarious and he was born with a special story. If it hadnt been for my pregnancy with him it's hard to know how long my bladder cancer would have gone undetected.
Happy birthday little P!

Still unburying from laundry...christmas break...kids home...all the cookies... Kid 3 couldnt find ANY school pants this morning.  They apparently went on break also so more laundry started before school drop off. 
Lame.

On the bright side...LOOK! Matching socks!

My sweet girl helped me make a salad when I was sick last week. She announced "first time cutting an onion!" like it was a moment to commemorate. She also kept running out of the room to try to stop the tears. 
Good times. 
Today there are tears because we're leaving the beach and returning to the desert. No onion necessary. .

There are 6 of us in a hotel room. The kids are...Loud. The struggle is real. My hubs suggested we play the Quiet Game in an effort to give ourselves and the neighbors a break. 
It did not go well. 
3 kids crying. One kicked in the crotch. One slamming doors. There was great weeping and gnashing of teeth. .

The only thing that keeps me up to midnight these days is a kid throwing up. Here's to NOT making it 'til midnight this year.

Cheers!

I may have been a wee bit resentful when I drew this. To be clear about what I'm saying here, I am not bragging that I can do more when I'm sick than my husband. 
What I'm saying is that I'm TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY JEALOUS that he can lay in bed and recover. I'm not blaming him - I'm blaming the kids. They won't ask him to do anything for them when he's NOT sick, so I certainly wouldn't expect them to ask him to, say, mend their socks like they asked me to do when I'm sick. 
Maybe that's why I can't seem to get better. 
Here's to a healthy 2018! . . . .

My oldest was telling dad/uncle jokes by the time he was 8. 
He's going to be the king of jokes by the time he's an actual dad/uncle.

That will be sooo egg-selent!

🌲Merry *yawn* Christmas! 🌲

On Christmas Eve the children were nestled all snug in their beds.
At 7:30.

They put themselves to bed early so they could enter the sleep time machine to transport them to Christmas morning. And that's how our Christmas began at 5:30am. .

Nothing says Happy Holidays quite like gathering around a gingerbread house to build it together.

One kid is missing - he's busy searching for the I in TEAM. One kid ate all the fruit gels off the house - I think for some kind of revenge. One spilled sprinkles all over the floor. And one yelled ... A LOT.

I made sure not to be around for this bit of fun. Glad my parents could be here to share in this particular Christmas Joy.

Late yesterday afternoon I realized I needed a few things from the store. I'm a slave to routine so this is like pulling my teeth out. Fortunately for me my youngest decided to tag along. He is so sweet!

When we got home he told my husband that going to the store with me was great because it was like we were on a date together. 💕

Dictionary says:

noun
the anus

Uh. I think I'm gonna keep it a little more vague than that.
And maybe use that expression a little less.

She got just a weeee bit angry.

She asked if she could hang Christmas lights on the kid's tree. I said sure. She got just a weeee bit angry. One more step towards adulthood. . .. . .. #estherssketchbook  #illustration  #drawing  #draw  #dailydrawing  #sketchdailies  #sketchbook  #kids  #comicstrip  #lifewithkids  #parentlife  #lifeofaparent  #parenthumor  #parentinghumor  #momhumor  #cartooning  #cartoon  #toddlerlife  #webcomic   #autobiocomics  #instacomic  #webtoon  #cartoonist  #cartoonillustration  #parenting  #parentingftw  #igersphoenix  #christmastree  #hanginglights 
Ladies and gentlemen - we have our very first TEEN! Happy birthday to our oldest. This particular quote is from his 10th birthday when - I guess - he thought he was now a grown up. 
He's clever, witty, loves all things technology, thrives on learning and is so much the absent-minded professor. 
Now I need to brace myself for 12 more years of children dominoing through their teens. 😲

"Lift your leg up and just tuck it behind your armpit. Then reach back and grasp your hands behind your back. Once you have that you can try to bend at the hips." I'm not sure what this Yoga pose is actually called but I'm pretty sure it should be "falling tree" - that's what I'll look like when my balance gives way while still vainly hoping for my hands to find each other behind my back. 
Timber!!! My hands never did find each other - maybe they were an inch away or maybe they were a foot away, or maybe they were on high alert in case of the inevitable fall. I have no idea. I'm proud to report that I didn't fall over - not even once - but I'm certain that if I'd achieved the hand grasping I would fo sho fall and those hands would be clutching each other for dear life. 
That would have been all kinds of ugly.

Tis the season forChristmas OCD! 
Kids putting 8 ornaments on one branch drive you batty? Feel compelled to rearrange the Fisher Price nativity set each time your kids finish playing with it?

Time to add a lot more rum to your eggnog. You got this! 
Only 3 more weeks of Christmas left. Then you can switch back to your regular brand of OCD. 
In the mean time I'm just going to have to find somewhere to sit that doesn't have me wanting to redo the window clings the kids put up.

My rough and tumble ladybug is 11 today! She's traded in her tomboy ways for skirts and hair struggles but she still the strongest kid I know in every sense of the word. She loves squishies, phoning friends, emojis, power lifting, sports and the color orange. She sets high goals and wants to be a pro football player when she grows up. 
She entered this world in a sprint and hasn't slowed down yet. Happy birthday sweet girl!

Sometimes you have to listen around the words. 
Translation: "I enjoy a good pie crust but have not found a filling that fulfills my culinary expectations and immature palette."

** Guest Appearance **
I had the pleasure of spending time with this silly 3yo recently. Here's what happened: he came up to me with his hands behind his back and a big smile on his face. 
He says "guess what I have?", so so sweetly. When I asked what he  got a huge dimpled grin, held his arm out and said "THIS!", holding a dead cricket between his finger and thumb.
It was not what I was expecting. At all.

My mistake for answering her honestly that I was not *exactly* going the speed limit. 
When I went to pick her up from school she said "I thought you were in jail! "

And, yes, I am that short.

What a fun project, sketching the local girls high school volleyball team.

It was such a pleasure to work with volleyball great @pytallman. Here's a few of my favorites from the 15 drawings. 
Special thanks to the amazing @kimjphotography for the reference photos. .

First of all, take note that this was not during Halloween dress up season.

I'm fairly confident that our kids embarrass us when they are young as some kind of preemptive payback to us embarrassing them when they get older. .

Does this happen to anyone else? 
We've lost cumulative hours being held hostage by what we refer to as "long-time poopers". 2 out of 4 are efficient poopers. 
I'm not going to name any names here but the other 2 once held us hostage at a restaurant for 45 minutes after we'd finished eating. One went in and just when we thought we were ready to leave, the other one decided they had to go too. 💩😭

Incidentally, what do you call a singular piece of clothing? "Clo" is so much more concise - we should totally adopt it into the real dictionary. 
I feel a wee bit sad when they stop using words from the kidionary and start to grow up a bit. 🙁

That sweet innocence lasted about 10 years. Now for sure the 10 and 12 year olds are on to the real thing and taking the younger 2 under their wings. 
So miss those days! .

My baby girl is turning 11 in a month. That number is small yet she acts ready to move out on her own any given day. 
It's such a joy to witness her growing up but her tornado like emotions feel like they leave disaster in their wake. I cannot even tell you how many times I'm told that I "don't get it" in a day. 
That makes it especially sweet when she opens up about how she's feeling. I've certainly felt this way before and it makes it easier to reassure her that she's not alone and if she's open to it, helping her try to manage those crazy emotions. 
Plus it makes it easier to overlook an eye-roll or two. 
I did ask her permission to post this because these things they say and do are cute when they're little but monumental as they become young adults. Having mutual respect might just help us survive the next decade. 
P.s. I'm sorry, Mom and Dad!

My oldest was a flip-flop for Halloween.
It started with a misunderstanding - he thought I was suggesting he be a sandal for Halloween when I was actually asking him to clean up his sandals. 
But then his sister said "You can't be a sandal! That would be sooo embarrassing!"
That sealed the deal. .

Sure, they make me a little crazy with their combined shenanigans and their inability to hear me when they're together but I wouldn't trade a thing! I hope this lasts their whole lives. .

Sometimes when I get an artwork into a show I think "wouldn't it be so nice to have my family there to support me?"
The answer is No. No it would not. 
In all fairness I prepped them better before the last show and they were pretty well behaved overall. 
And by "prep" naturally that means I threatened to take all the fun things away. ..

My son's first grade class is studying Ancient Egypt. He was assigned the part of "scribe".
I'm wondering how authentic I should go with the costume. 
The other boys are strongly suggesting I send him in with just "tighty-whities".

Earlier that day...
Me: "Why is your eye red?"
Youngest: "T punched me in the eye last night"
Me: "If it bothers you at school, make sure your teachers know it's not pink eye." And that's how I realized I'd rather have him throw his brother under the bus for punching him in the eye than have to pick him up early for suspected pink eye. 
Priorities. .

So we went to the pumpkin patch last Friday and maybe this is worded kind of cruel but it's not meant to be. 
If you can carry it, its yours. So many great lessons in that....perseverance, don't be greedy, teamwork. 
The awesome thing is that the kids took ownership of it. It was heavy and a bit of a walk, but not one of them wanted to use the wagon offered to them by the farm patch. They each took it as a personal challenge. 
Love these kids!

Love these kids! . .. . .. #estherssketchbook  #illustration  #drawing  #draw  #dailydrawing  #sketchdailies  #sketchbook  #kids  #comicstrip  #lifewithkids  #parentlife  #lifeofaparent  #parenthumor  #parentinghumor  #momhumor  #cartooning  #cartoon  #toddlerlife  #webcomic   #instacomic  #webtoon  #cartoonist  #cartoonillustration  #parenting  #parentingftw  #pumpkin  #pumpkinpatch  #inktober  #watercolorillustration 
I should have a category for TIMES MY CHILDREN WERE INNOCENTLY INAPPROPRIATE. 
Here's how this went: 
Oldest (singing): "It's a Mickey Mouse whorehouse, come inside it's fun inside." Me: "Uh, what?!" Him: "Whorehouse, you know, like a haunted house." Me: "Uh, no it's not. Don't say that again." Him: "Why, what does it mean?" Me: "I'll tell you when you're a LOT  older." .

My 3rd "washing the flowers" when he was 4. Isn't he the sweetest? 🌻🌻🌻 He's 9 now and has changed his mind about his future career to making pizza when he grows up. 🍕 😊

In Round 1 of Misheard Song Lyrics: Charlie Puth "Attention"

So we were having a heated debate in the car about the Charlie Puth song "Attention" and what exactly is being thrown. The youngest of us insisted it's the song says "You've been runnin' round, runnin' round, runnin' round throwin' that TURD UP ON MY NECK". Gross. 
Others in the car insisted he's saying "throwin' that turtle on my knee" as if that made any sense. 
Apparently he's actually saying "You've been runnin' round, runnin' round, runnin' round throwin' that dirt all on my name." Who knew?! Not us obv's. .

She has like a 50% success rate of not falling asleep before making the exchange. 
Slacker. .
Side note: does every country have a tooth fairy or is that just some bizarre American thing?

This statement was likely made in response to a demand such as "put your shoes away" or worse "practice your piano". No drama here folks! .

This 10 year old is the queen of perseverance. She gets up at 5:30 3x/week to lift with her dad. She has big goals - I can't even imagine where she will go in life. .

Yesterday morning I was driving the kids to school, as usual, and flipping through radio stations. We happened upon a classical station and sometimes I like to settle there for a few minutes, typically just to hear the kids protest. This morning the 9 year old says "Hey, I know that song! That song is by Edvard Grieg - we learned about him in music 3 YEARS AGO!" My 1st grader apparently concurred. 
I was impressed. 
Coincidentally, yesterday I saw mention that Arizona was ranked 51 out of 51 states for the worst state to be a teacher. Our quality of education rankings for the state have been poor for at least as long as I've had kids in school. So I was reminded by the morning's conversation of what a phenomenal education my children are getting through the Great Hearts charter schools. I am so grateful for the teachers who instill an excitement in children that they can't wait to come home and share about a new artist they learned about, a piece of literature, history, science experiment . . . so much more.

Side note, the back seat of our little car is definitely not that roomy. I suppose that was wishful drawing. . .. . .. #estherssketchbook #illustration #drawing #draw #dailydrawing #sketchdailies #sketchbook #kids #comicstrip #lifewithkids #parentlife #lifeofaparent #parenthumor #parenting #timeout #momhumor #cartooning #cartoon #toddlerlife #webcomic  #instacomic #webtoon #cartoonist #cartoonillustration #parenting #parentingftw #education #teachers #greathearts #archwaytrivium #triviumprep

We have this awesome suede chair we bought pre-kids at a Crate and Barrel outlet that currently lives in our bedroom. For probably about a decade it has been filled with tiny butts and big tears - and it's own title: 'The Time-Out Chair". Apparently, we've also ruined 3 year old hearts in that chair. Not exactly what we pictured when we purchased it. *sigh*

Do you have a designated time-out chair? .

It's not easy sharing a room with your 2 younger brothers.  Especially when it's past their bedtime and they're jumping around exclaiming "Nudity!"

The youngest was very concerned about the radio station that his middle brother was listening to cuz how can you know if they're saying a bad word when you don't speak the language?! And Number 3 is wearing his robe as it's the first thing he puts on when he gets home from school. Every. Day. 
Who cares if it's 100degrees outside? 
Not him apparently. .
