Talented Dad's Comics Show the Sweet and Funny Sides of Parenting

They are so right about why being a parent is totally worth it.

As a father, John Kovaleski knows parenting comes with a lot of hard work. But it's the little moments that make it all worth it.

In his new comic strip, Daddy Daze, the Pennsylvania dad and cartoonist is illustrating the humorous moments that come along with being a parent. The comic follows the life of a single dad named Paul as he balances working from home and raising his young son Angus. According to Kovaleski, the strip is inspired by his own life and experiences as a father.

"Daddy Daze is a loosely based portrayal of my experiences with fatherhood, and I'm thrilled to be able to share it. Being a parent is a crazy job—the hours are terrible, the pay is nonexistent, but the benefits outweigh it all," he said in a press release.

Daddy Daze is available in newspapers nationwide and can also be read on the strip's website and social media pages. Here are some that truly nail what it's like to be a working parent:
