I’m back! Ok so I’ve barely produced any doodles since producing a baby from my uterus. But today I decided to try to draw at least a BIT while the baby sleeps.
It’s an idea, let’s see if I can make it happen. Here’s a 10 minute doodle of some babies.
I don’t really know how to draw a good baby even though I look at one 90 % of my time 🤷🏼 I guess I’ll have to practice!

I probably won’t write very much for each drawing. But it’ll be a success if I can draw some doodles, because I know it makes me happy. And I hope they also bring you a laugh or even some creative inspiration.
For a while after the baby came, I didn’t even think of drawing. I guess I didn’t have the energy or mind space.
Now she’s 3 months old and thriving and I really want to get back into drawing. It’s good for me to have down time that’s not screen-related – even though I still love my YouTube and Instagram scroll time.
I’ve realised that the challenge with having a hobby as a parent, or just getting anything done, really, is that nap time is so short and precious.
During baby’s naps I can eat or go to the bathroom. TBH I often take a nap myself. Or try to read the news, which is sad but obviously as important as ever. But really hard when your brain is occupied with poop, enough burps, milk, “is she cold/warm/bored/tired??!” and many baby smiles 🥰
Fun fact 👖👖👖
Today I put on jeans for the first time since before Christmas. I dont know what it is, but wearing them always makes me feel somewhat accomplished, even before really doing anything.
Maybe they were part of the reason I got a doodle made 😅 I only have one pair that fits my postpartum body, though, so I’ll probably stick to sweats most days still.
Thanks for reading all the way through! I definitely haven’t gotten less rambly now that I’m a mom, lol! But if you’re following this blog, you probably don’t mind the word vomit 😆
