Life on their own… The REAL battle of Hanukkah.

Life on their own… The REAL battle of Hanukkah.

They leave home. They live on their own. But they still want to celebrate the Holidays with you.  Thanks to all this new technology, you can still have the feeling that your family is together again. One kid is virtually next to you, the other one, only “virtually”. You are happy. It’s like when they were kids… Actually,  really, really, like when they were kids…

Forget the Maccabees! The REAL battle of Hanukkah always took place in your house.

life on their own. The REAL battle of Hanukkah.

Life on their own… And they get sick…

Out of the nest… almost!

Summer is over. Our young adults went back to their own life. Enjoying their freedom, far way from parents who too often seem to bug them on purpose.  And they can stay in bed as long ad they want… But, there’s one real bug…

Here’s a new cartoon in this series about young adults living on their own. I have reached this time in my life when young people all around me are leaving their house to go live in their own apartment.  This is so exciting for them. Friends, nieces, nephews, even my own kids!  And parents are left to deal with the empty nest syndrome, hoping their kids would call more often…

And then the phone rings…

Poor baby! Another cartoon from the series "Life on their own..."

Her’s a new cartoon in this series about young adults living on their own. This time the story features a boy. It’s easy to get ideas for new stories on that topic. I have reached this time in my life when young people all around me are leaving their house to go live in their own apartment. This is so exciting for them. Friends, nieces, nephews, even my own kids!

However, I got the idea for this story by video chatting with my friends. Every time somebody calls me, I can’t help but looking around the room wondering what they can see. Kids are not the only who can be messy…

Life on their own…

Almost… out of the nest!

When I posted the first cartoon in this series, many people asked me: “Is this my daughter?” Well, it’s all of them.

Here’s another one. It all seemed so simple and easy when mom did it. Almost like magic!
