15 hilarious parenting comics that are almost too real.

Brian Gordon is a cartoonist. He’s also a dad, which means he’s got plenty of inspiration for the parenting comics he creates for his website, Fowl Language (only a few of which actually feature any profanity). He covers many topics, but it’s his hilarious parenting comics that are resonating with moms and dads everywhere. “My comics are largely autobiographical,” Gordon told me. “I’ve got two kids who are four and seven, and often, what I’m writing happened as recently as that very same day.” Gordon shared 15 of his oh-so-real comics with us. They’re all funny ’cause they’re true. Let’s get started with his favorite, called ” Welcome to Parenting,” which Gordon says sums up his comics pretty well. “Parenting can be such tedious drudgery,” he told me, “but if it wasn’t also so incredibly rewarding there wouldn’t be nearly so many people on the planet.” Truth. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. 1. All comics are shared here with Gordon’s express permission. These comics are all posted on his website in addition to his Facebook page.
