You love your mother, but you just wish she would live up to her potential. You know she could be better, if she only tried. Also, her communication skills could use some improvement, and she's a little indirect.


This cartoon is for people who have mothers who aren't perfect. (Yes, I do like talk radio!)

I also did many of the cartoons for this Chicken Soup book on Mothers and Daughters.

Happy Happy to Mothers AND Daughters anyway!

Here's another cartoon about a bossy mother.

Cartoon Caption: Mother says to daughter, "Well, I heard another caller on talk radio complaining about her mother...and THIS caller sounded like you, too."
