Ton, who is originally from the Netherlands and now lives in Los Angeles, shares her work at Betje.com(”Betje” is a variant of Liesbeth in Dutch). Many of Ton’s illustrations depict an all-too-real experience of life as a mom to three kids

“Someone once commented that I shouldn’t be nagging about parenting, as if it’s extremely difficult,” she said. “I never thought of it in a negative way, I just like to joke about the struggles.”

Ton also loves the feedback she receives on Facebook and Instagram. Seeing moms and dads relate to her cartoons has helped her recognize that all parents are in this together.

“It shows we all have the same struggles,” she said.
