This Artist’s Perfect Comics Of Life Before And After Having Kids Has Parents Nodding

Weng Chen’s comic, The Messycow Comics, is repeatedly a perfect encapsulation of reality.

The Chinese Seattleite and mother-of-two has previously garnered acclaim for her comics about shopping for clothes.

Chen is back at it again, but this time she has perfectly illustrated life before and after kids.

The comic series “Before Kids/After Kids” first began with parents’ perception of sound… or the lack thereof.

Chen also drew examples of how once-mundane tasks suddenly evolve into much more exciting adventures.

And fur-babies suddenly play second fiddle to the human variety.

Fans of the Messycow Comics have repeatedly seen Chen’s brilliant depictions of parenthood.

People have identified with her over her Father’s Day comics that show how her husband has grown as a dad, as well as her comics that show the difference between baby 1 and baby 2.

The internet is back to nodding their agreement while holding back laughter from her latest installment.
