Before you have kids, you think to yourself about how your kid would never whine, scream, freak out, or shout–I’m here to tell you that anything can and will happen with a toddler, including a simultaneous obsession and fear over cows. Yep, he still loves his little toy farm set cows, even after this incident!
I think he’ll stick with the smaller, plastic kind of bovine for now…
I used to dislike New Years. Being such a Christmas fanatic, the New Years holiday seemed more like an anti-climactic ending to such a festive time of year–like Christmas’s sad, ugly, forgotten cousin who had a birthday that everyone felt they needed to begrudgingly acknowledge–than a real cause for celebration.
But, in the past several years, I have grown to increasingly love New Years because it is a holiday that is filled to the brim with hope. It’s the holiday of endless possibilities: you can sit down and list out all of the things you’d like to do or aspire to in the next year, no matter how wild the ideas are that cross your mind, AND you have 365 days to do all of those things! Not a week! Not a month! An entire year. There is no rush, no limits, and my daydreamer self loves that concept.
Here is to a happy, healthy New Year for everyone.
We’ve had a lot of company over the last few weekends and some pretty packed weekdays in general, SO: that’s my excuse for this erratic posting of the Chicken Saga episodes. I’m also happy to say that I’ve completed a spankin’ new full-color illustration for Halloween, so stay tuned for a peek of that as well.
In the meantime, yes, I am still making Chicken Saga comics, and yes, it actually does have an ending!
