My husband Garth (not his real name) and I are big Baby Blues fans - especially, after our oldest daughter was born - and the comic strip very well may be the original ‘parenting blog,’ chronicling the misadventures of parenthood.
Guess that's why we love it so much, huh Hon?
For those of you who aren't familiar with the strip - although, I can't imagine anyone, you know, who isn't - Baby Blues follows the adventures of a mid-30s career couple, Wanda and Darryl MacPherson and their 3 zany kids, Zoe, Hamish and Wren.
Recently, I had the extreme pleasure of interviewing the awesome creators of Baby Blues, Jerry Scott (he writes the strip) and Rick Kirkman (the gifted artists that animates the ideas) and am I the only one who thinks it's funny, you know, how they don't look anything like Darryl, or Wanda?
Please, clean off a chair and stay a while, you can read my entire interview with Rick and Jerry (can I call them that?) at my OTHER BLOG.
Baby Blues appears in more than 1,100 newspapers worldwide, and the adventures of America 's favorite first-time parents have also been chronicled in 30 anthologies and treasuries.
Our friends at Baby Blues have offered 10 of our readers a copy of their latest anthology, "X-Treme Parenting - A Baby Blues Treasury by Rick Kirkman & Jerry Scott" and I, for one, would love to find it under my artificial-but-looks-totally-real-tree, this Christmas!
