We're excited to introduce Mugs Half Full, a new parenting comic created by Erin Human and Lauren Bonk, two moms from Omaha. The series will follow a family's adventures through conversations over coffee. Hopefully December's installment will help you overcome the need for perfection this holiday season!

There's always that one family member who can't believe my kids only wants to eat cheese and crackers. (Why thank you, sir! This is adorable!) (Whoa, whoa!) My kids always get bored and end up turning the living room into an obstacle course. (Nice jump!)

But, if it is, remember... there's always pie. Mugs Half Full by Lauren Bonk and Erin Human
