    Perhaps she could go with the flow a little more often…

    How much would she gain by playing along for a minute or two and helping him “find” his head. As parents I think we miss these opportunities all too often; I know I did. I’m trying to do better with the grandkids.

    Hugh, your animations are priceless. The one of this strip captures Calvin in his essence.

    My mom would’ve reacted just like Calvin’s mom. My dad wouldn’t have been any better. But my grandparents would’ve played along.

    No such luck, Calvin. You can’t put one over on her. She’s been there and more than likely done that

    Maybe Calvin should have tried the old “Pull my finger” trick instead.

    Well, I think mom is fun enough… for all of us…

    And Calvin’s absolutely right about handkerchiefs.

    Mom has had way to much experience with Calvin’s antics to be gullible, but I agree, it wouldn’t hurt to play along once and awhile.

    His dad would have made some appropriate response.

    You know, in between Mom”no fun at all - ever’ parenting and dad’s schizophrenic ‘character improving and making him believe the most outrageous lies’ parenting, they honestly deserve the way Calivn turned out. And Calvin honestly doesn’t deserve all the misery he already gets and will get for being screwed up like this.

    But, being a typical kid (with no handkerchief), you know he wiped his nose on the inside of that shirt. Whatever’s handy, right?

    Like Calvin, went through parent hell. Didn’t come out completely unscathed, but I survived. Most of us do.

    I don’t think back then know to sneeze in sleeve took place. At least when I was a kid never occured to us. Now we have to and it’s not that easy to sneeze in sleeve. I try to have kleenze or towell around. I also like the animinations wish there was sound to those pictures.
