NON MONOGAMOUSLY

Getting To El Paso.

Hey friends! We’re sorry this comic is a day late, we just got swept away in baby-caring and life stuff the last few days.

TFIM-STRIP-54

THE BACKSTORY: Marco’s mom and sister were stuck in Texas, where their job opportunities and health were severely suffering, but they also really love Marco and were excited for the baby. So, it became a huge priority for us to help them move back to Portland, especially as so many precious and wonderful things happen so quickly the first year of a person’s life, so many things we wanted our family to be here for and to share with us. As a nanny for over a decade, I’ve seen how multigenerational inclusion in families benefits children and parents and extended family. Plus, Marco’s sister and mom made it easy to include them because they wanted to be involved and offered their support to our family no matter how our family was constructed. Matt and I had only briefly met Marco’s sister before, but we love Marco and it’s clear that some of the great aspects of Marco’s character have been informed by their relationships with each other. As we were committed to Marco and starting a family all together, we became committed to Marco’s sister and mother, two of the most important people in Marco’s life, our baby’s abuela and tía.

Also, you gotta read Mind of My Mind if you haven’t.
