Parenting through Humor and Doodles




Hi! I’m Hilary. Wife to my husband and mom to two rugrats (or mom to three rugrats, depending on the day). I was born and raised in New York City but now live in Connecticut with my crazy family.  I’m an attorney by trade. But deep down I’m a huge nerd who loves all things art and humor.

When our first child started to speak in full sentences, my husband and I got a notebook to write down all of the ridiculous, adorable, hilarious, and downright nonsensical things she said. Then one day on a whim, I broke out my sketchbook and colored pencils and doodled her as a cartoon. The proverbial light bulb went on over my head. Why don’t I just do this for all of the hilarity that goes on in this house?! And just like that, My Mommy Doodles was born.

What began as a hobby has now become a passion. Parenting is life-altering (no one can disagree with that). But it’s not all peaches and cream, even when everyone tells you it should be. Parenting can be exhausting, daunting, stressful, and sometimes headache-inducing.

What’s a mommy to do? Draw a doodle. Add some humor. Share it with you.

Welcome, and enjoy!
