post-baby haze


20160713_080658I actually MADE a CHX-139b tshirt! I love it. 😀  Just a killer picture.  I forgot how exhausting it is to have a new-born.  I mean, i remember anecdotally how tired i was, but i think the actual memories were repressed in order to maintain my facade of sanity.  IT ALL COMES SCREAMING BACK!

Why cant babies just sleep during the night?  Our new baby is nocturnal, i’m sure of it.



Mobility is its own reward


Landmarks in mobility, working backwards:
10)  Being able to fly on a plane
9)  Being able to drive a car
8)  Being able to take public transit by yourself
7)  Being able to ride a car without a booster seat
6)  Being able to ride a bike
5)  Being able to walk
4)  Being able to ride in a car without a rear-facing seat
3)  Being able to crawl
2)  Being able to roll consecutively in one direction
1)  Being able to flip-over

According to this chart I JUST made up, Josie is only 8 steps away from MOBILITY DOMINATION.

Lil’ Joe isn’t quite walking, or crawling even… but rolling?  Rolling faster than the speed of safety?  Yep.  She’s got that DOWN PAT.  Constant supervision is required.  Baby-proofing is just around the corner.  Honestly!  why are babies always almost fallin’ off of stuff?  Change-tables, couches, normal-tables, bouncy-seats, chairs…left to her own devices, she would roll out of all of them.  PARENTHOOD, amirite?

Have a great thursday everyone!  This week is really flying by!  remember- if you are reading these on facebook, please hit “like” on the “charlie and the ghost webcomic” facebook page!  That way, these updates will keep showing up in your news feed.  At the end of the week, i’m gonna stop sharing these comics on my personal profile!




SEMANTICS, i tell you!



Seriously!  include some instructions why don’cha!

If you’re following this comic through wordpress or email, thank-you so much!  It warms my heart, and I hope you are enjoying this comic!  I personally love the reader, it’s nice scrolling through all the blogs I like reading.

If you are following this comic through facebook, read on- I’m hoping to make some changes!

About a year ago, facebook changed how stuff shared on a person’s profile works!  I’ve had SO many people who used to read this strip come up to me and say, “Man, I LOVED charlie and the ghost!  Why did you quit?” and I say, “uh… I didn’t!” and they say, “really?  How come I don’t see your comics anymore?”  which kinda sucks!  I mean, i’m not world-famous, i need every fan I can get!  😀

So I stopped being lazy, bit the bullet and made a “charlie and the ghost webcomic facebook page”.  If you follow through facebook and want to see the comics in a more reliable fashion, please click “like” on the page!  In about a week, I’m gonna stop sharing the comics on my personal profile.
