The last 12 years of my life, in cartoon

So my son had to do an autobiographical assignment and chose to do the comic strip. He storyboarded it, and in a feat of near-unbelievable sibling cooperation, his little sister made the art happen. So it's from Connor's POV, with Lauren's magic touches, and--considering she just turned 10 on 1/25, I think it's freaking amazing. I could never do it. (She did it on her Bamboo drawing pad, with MS Paint software). I'm particularly fond of: 1) how perky & lovely I am both times after giving birth (!!); 2) the black mourning baby blanket she put on her baby self; and 3) the terrifyingly toothy smile of "Shamoo" the whale. Yes, having a proud Mommy moment today:

My daughter who is 18, loves to draw and she got her talent from her father, I can't draw a stick figure person. lol
