Ah, the highs and lows of becoming a mother! Motherhood can be as challenging as it is rewarding because, with kids, there are baby tantrums, nappies to change or vomits to clean. Even simple things like taking a nap or watching a movie seem like the most difficult task. One minute you’ll find your child calmly sleeping in the crib like an angel, while another may seem like the devil incarnate with sheer crying. And Australian artist Paula Kuka perfectly illustrates these motherhood moments in honest and relatable comics.
She is the artist behind the popular Instagram account, @common_wild and has two kids, a ton of talent and an uncanny ability to create art that captures exactly what so many other moms are feeling. Scroll on to see some of her best illustrations in our curated list below! We promise you’ll find all of them brutally hilarious.
