The father of 2 told HuffPost he created Lunarbaboon soon after becoming a parent. I was dealing with issues that included anxiety and depression and the comic started as a form of treatment. The thought was that I would take things that were stressing me out and try and find the humor in them, he explained.

It revealed that a lot of what stressed me out was parenting, which is why so many of my comics focused on me as a dad, he added.

Beyond his kidsseal of approval, Grady hopes that his comics relate with other parents.

I hope other mothers and fathers who are struggling as parents get the message that they are not alone, he said. That life with kids can be difficult, but it comes with many rewards.
