Tracing a photo because I’m cleaning up kid vomit and baby diarrhea and thanking all the powers that Be that we still have electricity in the middle of this Portland Ice Storm. I’m fine during crisis. I save my break downs for 48 hours later.

Second baby has it rough in a lot of ways, but not when it comes to toys.
Penny in a water bottle is the best rattle. And the plastic bottle is crinkly too.
Liz has tried taking ownership of some of the toys but it turns out I owned a lot of them long before having kids. Pink Ram is one of their favorite. From a reader after I did the DnD comics about my glowing pink goat.
During the pandemic you could be with the pregnant lady but you couldn’t leave and come back. You could leave, but they weren’t letting anyone in who wasn’t already there in the begging. So if parents didn’t have someone to be home with kid or animal or whatever, the mom was on her own at the hospital. Viv was born two years ago in 2021 and there was enough restrictions lifted that my mom was able to come watch Liz while Obby and I were in the hospital. We did have to stay masked the entire time, which was hard to stay on top of. Covid was fucking up so many pregnant ladies, they were not messing around.
My mom will buy kids books with the kids name in it. So “Liz” has a bunch of books with her name in it. We were reading one that had a little sister of “Liz” and I asked her what her little sisters name was and she said the name from the book. We then tried to figure out what the long version of “viv” should be. Obby really was researching on his phone while I was packed up and trying to leave the hospital.
It took us forever to figure out what her name should be for the comic because we were trying to find something that was short (to fit into word balloon text) and was similar to “Liz” because we get the girls names mixed up all the time.
