* BabiesMakeEverythingBetter: It's even in the name, so of course Baby Blues has babies. Started with Zoe, and later Hammie and Wren. Somewhat subverted, in that while Daryl and Wanda are clearly happy having children, the strip doesn't shy away from how incredibly ''hard'' it is taking care of kids.

* WorthIt: When Darryl points out to Hammie (who has a water hose trained on an unsuspecting Zoe) that he's facing serious time out time if he goes through with squirting Zoe, Hammie considers this and declares it's worth it.

Added DiffLines:

* ScreamingPlaneBaby: Played straight during Darryl and Wanda's first trip to visit the latter's parents with Zoe. Wanda's method of apologizing for this was to stand up and shout "HEY! Count your blessings! I COULD have had TWINS!" Subverted when Wanda took Hammie with her to visit her father after his heart attack; the only fuss he caused was spilling Wanda's drink.


Added DiffLines:

* SiblingYinYang: Shortly after Hammie was born, Wanda noted that he acted completely differently from Zoe when she was that age. Namely, while Zoe had colic and didn't sleep much, Hammie was much calmer and slept for most of the day.

* AcquaintedWithEmergencyServices: In one comic, Wanda and Darryl are rushing Zoe to the doctor after thinking she may have swallowed a battery. Wanda mentions [[ContinuityNod how they were there just last week after Darryl stepped on Zoe's hand]] and says that if this continues, the staff will know them by name. Darryl dismisses this, but the next panel (focusing on the staff) shows she was right.

* BedtimeStalling: Zoe has tried numerous tactics to not have to go to bed. These include tying her shoelaces into large knots, refusing to go to sleep until she had all her stuffed animals with her, and even literally ''latching onto Darryl's face'' while she was kissing him goodnight.


Added DiffLines:

* GettingTheBabyToSleep: Zoe has often been the subject of this, even as she's gotten older. Her numerous attempts to stall bedtime include tying her shoelaces into large knots, refusing to go to sleep until she had all her stuffed animals with her, and even literally ''latching onto Darryl's face'' while she was kissing him goodnight.

Added DiffLines:

* NamesTheSame: Played for drama; when Zoe was in preschool, she was the target of a bully she knew only as "The Golden-Haired Girl." As it turns out, The Golden-Haired Girl's real name was also Zoe, to Wanda's horror.

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Despite becoming more tolerant of gross things since having kids, medical procedures in general (such as surgery or shots) make Darryl squeamish. When baby Wren had to get tubes in her ears, just hearing the word "surgery" caused Darryl to faint; he also fainted when Zoe's umbilical cord fell out.
