Talented Dad's Comics Nail What It's Like to Raise a Toddler

He captures all of the hilarious highs and lows.

Parents of toddlers know that it can be quite a challenge at times. With all of the tantrums and demands for attention, it can leave you exhausted. But, thankfully, it can also be a blast.

Jonathan Jui, the creator of the comic and parenting blog Baba's Field Notes knows the struggle all too well. The father and cartoonist is based in London and draws inspiration from his wife and son Milo (nicknamed Bao Bao).

Jonathan's comics cover everything from trying to get Bao Bao dressed in the morning to potty training problems. In an interview with the Huffington Post he explained that life with a toddler is like an amusement park trip. “It’s a lot of fun, there are some moments of waiting and frustration, and we’re all tired by the end of the day,” he said. “Plus, amusement parks and raising a kid are both so expensive!”

Here are some of our favorite toddler comics from Jonathan:
