From what they said to the man at the bus stop, to where you found
the remote control, when you’re a parent, laughing at what gets
hurled in your direction is beyond important. Since 2012, fashion illustrator Laura Quick has been sketching scenes from daily domestic life on her blog, The Daily Think. Insightful, tender and very, very funny, the images have become hugely popular, and the very best of them are collected together in this exquisite and hilarious gift book.

All the bizarre moments and ridiculous conversations that are part of
being a parent are here, from the day Laura’s daughter tried to poke
her finger into a dog’s rear end, to the temper tantrums, and the
sense of relief when the school holidays are over.

Chronicling all manner of parenting fails and mishaps, the illustrations
are a welcome light relief for world-weary parents everywhere.
