This is what my friend and her partner do after they’ve gotten the baby to sleep. I couldn’t get this image out of my head – the two of them, heads bent close, an ipod earpiece each, grasping for any bit of entertainment that won’t wake the child – and just had to sketch it out. I think I love it because it is both an example  of the almost ludicrous things we find ourselves doing as parents, and a testament to devotion, the lengths we will go to on behalf of our children.
