Hi everyone ... I can't think of anywhere else where this pic would be as appreciated as right here. Here is a pic of our little one 'reading' Dykes To Watch Out For. So cute!

And so I did ... I hope she gets a kick out of it!
DTWOF did so much for me when I was younger. It's just bizarre to have a daughter digging it out of the bookshelf and flipping through it. Surreal.

Let us know if you get feedback from the author !

A few months ago, seemingly out of the blue, Luke and Jaz (then 6 years old) started drawing comic strips. They draw a lot, every day, so it wasn't that surprising that they'd decided to try out this new medium.

But, when I started reading the strips, I realized there were a lot of naked women in them. One caption said, "ladies, you seem to have lost your panties . . . "

Lena and I were like, "WHAT IS GOING ON?!"

It dawned on me just a short while later.

"Um, guys? Have you been reading MY comic books?"

Two sheepish children respond, "yes . . . and there's a lot of naked people in them!"

Whoops.

Apparently my kids have treated themselves to the same education via DTWOF that I received (and so desperately needed) as a teenager.

So, for now, our collection is up on a higher shelf, out of the reach of our curious little book-lovers.

So cute!

For awhile, Ocean was obsessed with (I kid you not) the "Spawn of Dykes to Watch Out For" volume. Though, she seemed more interested in the picture of Alison Bechdel and her cat on the back cover than anything else. ("Cat! Cat! Cat!")

On a similar note, I found Ocean reading "Hip Mama" this morning. Hee hee.

A few months back, when I was struggling with the transition to toddlerhood and sebby was a bit angry with me, I found him reading 'Becoming the parent you want to be.' I definitely think things have gotten better since then!!

Too cute! I just recently read the series again so the books are scattered everywhere around the house and they often get mixed in with my 4 yr olds books!! These comics were such an awesome escape for me while coming out and I seem to never tire of them!
I used to be a nerdy bookseller so I can relate
Love this pic...thanks for sharing!
