I think that day was one of the first time I ever got into an argument with our dad. I just started yelling at him in public while his girlfriend just watched from the side.

This is why I don't want to raise babies. I have had enough with baby excrement. I am fucking done with babies.

Miriam asked if this is why I enjoyed the short stories she gave me of housewives in the 50s that get stir crazy. It is.

Oh geez, I'd never want to take care of babies after that. Sounds like a shit experience, even though I guess good for bonding sibling wise?

@Reealt: To that I would have to say, definitely not.

I was pretty young at the time, a teenager, so I was pretty resentful of him while deep down knowing this wasn't his fault at all. He wasn't my kid, nor my responsibility but I had no choice but to care for him. It was mostly a strong feeling of being trapped.

Taking care of Connor as a baby was a literal shit experience.

@daviddoesntgetit: I would've said more of a pissy experience. xD Well, Miriam and Connor sounds like they grew up around a loving family, regardless of all the crap that has gone on. You can feel the love through these comics. And the maturity they have shown BECAUSE of you and all of their surroundings. I think you should be proud, you have every right to be. :D Anyways, always a fan. Also, tell Miriam, we are on the same page. xD

Dear lord how needy is your dad?
He goes and acts like an irresponsible teenager to the kids he threatened your mother with a knife to keep!
And pushed the role of father to you!
He vanishes only coming back when it suits him and then he goes and tells Bernard raising kids ain't easy....
Your dad pisses me of a lot in this regard cause I think every parent worth their salt isn't nearly as self-indulgent(and then somehow thinks his wisdom of parenting is great?).

How long where you in Vietnam? I would only not kill myself if I had a date in wich I knew I would be free from such situation.
And where were Bernard and Miriam?

It always confuses me how you too were still small when your parents separated yet Miriam and Connor are also children of both your parents.

This was such a funny comic lol :D Miriam and Conner were definitely cute kids

oh miriam.... you know whats going on XD

you are going to be a wonderful parent now david im sure of it

As messed up as that was, it was still really awesome of you to take care of Connor like that. At least he had someone looking out for him when he was little!

Also, especially after this comic, I can safely say that I don't think I will ever want children. Ick.

@yaoi4evandnevayuri: Nah. Pissy doesn't really match anyone's personality.

Yeah, they did have a pretty good life. Being around our dad brings it down a bit but otherwise, pretty good.

I'm not really sure why they're mature, I doubt it has anything to do with me.

Haha, well, I definitely spent a good portion growing up caring for my younger siblings but our mom still had a hand in it.

Miriam: Wink

@BurstThrough: Well, he was feeling really betrayed, the part with the knife. She was kind've the only woman he liked.

Haha, but yeah. I was pretty pissed.

We were in Vietnam for two months. We do not go to Vietnam without buying a ticket back.

Ah, yeah. There's a complicated story behind that. I answered that somewhere on Tumblr but let me look for it.

Here it is.

As to where Miriam and Bernard were, this comic was a continuation of a really old comic, they were back in America. Bernard had to go back for school and Miriam was sick.

"Ah. That’s a complicated story.

Our mom and stepdad tried to have kids together but it ended up impossible, miscarriages here and there. So thanks to artificial insemination our mother asked our dad to help out, he agreed with the stipulation of letting him stay as a father figure in their lives. Our mom reluctantly agree which got our stepmom pissed because at that point she and our dad had divorced and she could not convince him to give her sperm ‘cause she wanted more of his kids.

Miriam and Connor get along well with our stepdad. I do not at all, so to avoid making our mom cry again, I avoid drawing him in the comic.

But he’s there and they’re happily married. Not right now, she’s been pretty angry at him the past couple years ‘cause he’s going through a midlife crisis and hasn’t had a job for years now but otherwise they’re fine.

Actually, he doesn’t seem to like our mom’s family a lot and so a lot of uncles complain about him saying he doesn’t seem to enjoy taking part with them, haha. Family’s pretty tight knit and so a lot of them consider him an outsider.

We have one uncle who I think caught on to my relationship with stepdad so he tends to seek me out the moment he has something to complain about my stepdad, haha. He keeps asking me to bleed our stepdad dry out of money but I can’t do that to our mom.

I went on a tangent there, anyways. That’s that."

@ice-tea: Yeah, they were.

@roxjey: I'm done with babies. Haha. I refuse to change Bernard's kid's diapers, that's all him and Mai.

Our mom made the same promise if we ever had kids. "I'm not watching any of your kids. I promise you."

@SmallishBird: Well, I didn't have much of a choice and I didn't want him dead, haha. I liked him enough to do that much.

Eh. Babies are the worst part but y'know what they say about love. Love makes you do crazy things.
