12 Hilarious Comics That Nail The Reality Of Parenthood

Greeting card artist and dad of two Brian Gordon wanted to create a comic that was a bit more personal than usual.

"I thought I had figured out what kids were like and how to parent after the first one, but my daughter came along and proved I had no idea what I was doing." So, in 2013, Fowl Language Comics, a funny, sweet, often expletive-filled look at parenting, was born.

Gordon's comics have been a hit across the internet. He likes to focus on the tougher parts of parenthood in his duck-filled stories. "Nothing's easier to make fun of than failure and frustration, and that's about 90% of parenting, as far as I can tell," he told The Huffington Post.

Gordon hopes that parents will feel a sense of solidarity when they see his comics. "A lot of people are hesitant to complain about their kids or admit how mind-numbing certain aspects of parenting can be, but we all experience it. I think it takes the sting out of the frustration when you realize that other parents are going through the same crap you are."

Check out 12 of his awesome comics below for a reminder that we're all in this together.
