This was supposed to be the second part of the Mother's Day strip that also delves a bit on some of the family history (you can read the 1st part here). The original drawing sorta came out crummy so I had to redraw some parts, yadda-yadda-yadda... The only thing that annoys me with this one is my inability to write some decent words that doesn't come off drippy or strained.

A little bit of trivia here, the lyrics posted in the strip was taken from the Irish lullaby, Toora Loora Looral, the same song the character of Steve Martin sang in front of his guests in his engagement party in the movie, HouseSitter. This will be expanded to a 2-3 page story that will come out in one of those indie compilations of this series. Hope y'all like it.

* This strip was published May 11, 2005.
