Illustration Friday - Lesson

So this week's Illustration Friday topic is Lesson. I immediately thought of my own misconception of parenthood. Before I had children the solutions seemed so simple, or so I thought. Why, if I just explain to them in a clear, concise and logical way they will understand. I thought that logic would win them over and instill in them the ability to reason for themselves... to make good choices.

Once I had children I found that logic doesn't get up with you at 4:00am when the baby is crying, it shrugs it's shoulders when a child is kicking a screaming on the floor, and it takes a vacation when a ball is thrown through a window.

On the occasion that you have the wits about you to think clearly enough to compose a coherent thought, you realize logic must have been derived from Greek because children don't understand it anyway.


  1. I'm with you on that one - and it doesn't get easier the older they get. Love the illustration.
