Future Preppin

This week’s new Dustinland comic is not actually a Father’s Day comic, but the timing works out nicely so let’s just say that it is. I mean, it is about parenting, and I am a father, so there you go. Close enough! Seriously though, the pressure in the comic is real.

Learning Language

In this week’s new Dustinland comic, my kid learns to curse. Oh well. I did do a good job of at least keeping it out of the house for years. But once a few older kids and big brothers come along… well, it’s only a matter of time. May he use them sparingly and appropriately.

The Sounds of Parenthood

This week’s Dustinland comic was quickly drawn, since I am busy. Yet it is still true. However, don’t be confused: I do in fact enjoy parenthood. It’s just funnier to talk about the annoying parts.

The Awful Tooth

I don’t stand by the words of my six-year-old featured in this week’s new Dustinland comic, but they were pretty funny. One of those instances where the kid says something wrong and you have to hold in the laughter because you don’t want to encourage naughty behavior. Actually, I just made that up. I wasn’t even there — he said it to my wife. But it is totally that kind of line.

In related news, it must be impossible to make an original tooth/truth pun. They must all be done, simply in the dentist merchandising arena alone. Ain’t that the tooth.

Risqué Business

This week’s new Dustinland comic is quite cheeky. It’s about dads — well, one dad: me — making naughty little double entendres around the house since my little one is too young to understand them. Totally immature, but you do have to find ways to entertain yourself in this domestic life.

Emergency PM

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about those times when your kid wakes you up screaming in the middle of the night. You always run to the rescue, but rescue isn’t always what’s needed…

I’ll give it to my kiddo in this case. He was getting over the flu.

Forced Fun

This week’s Dustinland comic is about how as parents, we try to expose our kids to new things and make sure they get out into the world and have a good time, and all the while they battle us over every little step. I’m glad I do it though! In the long run, it all works itself out.
