So we’re really happy to find these amazing, expressive prints that a talented mama and past CMP pick has created to do her part to raise awareness about kids like her own.
Artist and painter Samantha Cotterill’s Mummysam shop includes more than a dozen bright and quirky illustrations that give us a little glimpse into her life as a mom to boy on the spectrum.
What’s fantastic though is that her messages will be familiar to most parents–as with the Too Cold print at top, featuring a picky child turning up his nose at dinner. And what parent among us cannot relate to the illustration of a child who is wrapped up around mama (literally) in an effort to keep her near.
After seeing that one, you’ll want to give any friend who is parenting a child with autism an extra hug today. -Christina
