Tim Dempsey, creator of both today’s guest strip, and the true-to-life family comedy My Life in the Trenches (at mylifeinthetrenches.com), struck a definite nerve in me with this strip. Being the father of two young boys, I’ve finally found up what “they grow up so fast” really means. The idea of my little Sprout suddenly sprouting into teenagerhood is a very real nightmare for me :)

Also, I am forever wishing I could take a long nap.
You got me twice, Tim.

Speaking of nightmares, here’s one of the latest Trenches comics. Good timing, that.

And while you’re at it, check out some of the many other projects in which Tim’s involved, via his blog at: http://dempseystudio.blogspot.com/

    Frankly, I fantisize about naps like this. Yeah, I have lame fantasies.

  3. Chris

    I’m right there with you, Dan. A long long nap seems like a pipe dream.

    Makes me think I better get off the computer and do something productive.

  5. George

    It’s strange-but-true that kids actually grow up that fast. :(

  6. SpilledInkGuy

    Great strip! And I can relate - I’m fairly certain I could rather easily pull a Rip Van Winkle! :)

  7. Chris

    Bearman: It’s three days later. Still on the computer? ;)
    George: Sigh. I know.
    SpilledInk: But can you grow the cool father time beard to match?

  8. Adam First

    Seriously? Otosan and Ojisan?

    Don’t tell me your boys have both begun taking to Nihongo to that extent.

  9. Chris

    Well, they know the words, but here in our house, we’re just Mama and Papa :D
