Parenting is difficult enough, but being a newlywed mother and father is a completely different experience. You’re falling asleep in strange places, your shirt is smeared with mysterious substances (aka baby ate breakfast), and quality time for yourself is a distant memory.
Because they are both brutally relevant and savagely hilarious, the new comics will hit close to home

In the ongoing comic series “One of Those Days,” Tel Aviv-based illustrator Yehuda Devir and his wife Maya Devir have been sharing their loving adventures with their fans. Exaggerated and very relevant scenarios from their lives are featured in the series. After being picked up by Bored Panda in 2017, Yehuda’s comics became an internet success, with a devoted following and 5.4 million Instagram followers. At the Inflow Global Summit 2019 Awards in Istanbul, the duo was recently honoured with the Most Creative Content Maker award.
It turns out that the married couple is still as ecstatic as they’ve always been! “We’re experiencing a whole new set of emotions and ideas that we weren’t aware of,” they explained. The journey revealed new aspects of their personalities, not all of which are favourable. “We have a lot of disagreements,” the two said, “but we learn from them.”
Yehuda and Maya had no choice but to rearrange their priorities after the baby was born: “At work, there is no longer a couple, no longer a team… “I’m just Ariel.” In reality, the couple now works in shifts and follows a set schedule. “This is a new life for us, and we’re adjusting.” But not in a negative way. “This meeting will mould us into better versions of ourselves.”
The most difficult aspect of becoming a new parent is finding time for oneself. One of them explains, “We never go to bed at the same time.” They now conduct a lot of multimedia presentations from home as a result of the coronavirus, and they try to balance work and family life under one roof. “It’s difficult to transition from our parent-friendly personality to our company because both of us must participate in the lecture.”
When Ariel is older, Yehuda and Maya hope that she will be able to “see all the effort that mother and daddy have put in for her and appreciate it.”
” We sincerely hope…”
