    Out of curiosity, how does Mrs. Otterloop tell her husband and son apart when they’re a Senior and Junior? What about the rest of you who know people like that? (Happy boithday t’me.)

    And call someone else’s mom as “Hi, Bob’s mom”

    Every kid knows that grown-ups are on the verge of losing it.

    Madeline, your daughter doesn’t know your “real” name! But then you don’t know hers, either. I guess it runs in the family. —And Petey just makes sardonic comments….

    Alice should get some revenge. Nothing serious, just steal her mommy’s favorite dish towel (seen in the first five panels of today’s strip), and leave a note that says, “XXOO, Esmé”

    Happy Birthday! I imagine in their case it’s by calling Dad “Peter” and son “Petey.”

    One of the most important jobs a parent has is Knowing where their kids “buttons” are, & knowing just how hard to push those buttons.

    Remember families where all the siblings’ names started with the same letter: Jimmy, Johnny, Joey, Jeffrey, Jay, etc.
    Imagine trying to keep those straight, especially when you are annoyed.

    I remember more than once, when my mom was starting in on a good rant at one of her kids, would use the wrong name, try to use the right one and still get it wrong. Sometimes, if the kid was lucky, she would completely lose her dander and start laughing.
