As the mother of a 21-month-old boy, I have to say, I’ve been a bit surprised at all of the injuries I’ve managed to sustain at his adorably chubby little hands. He doesn’t hurt me on purpose (most of the time), but that doesn’t change the fact that a small noggin slammed straight into your nasal bone can make a grown woman cry.

Luckily, I’ve got a sensitive little soul on my hands this time around, so he does at least try to learn from his mistakes.

Still, I feel very seen by this new series of “The Adventures of Messy Cow” comics by brilliant artist and mom Weng Chen that focuses on the more physical hazards the parents of toddlers will inevitably face. If you’re in that stage of parenting (or are close enough to remember the pain) then there’s a good chance you will, too.
