    Oh, well. At least it was on a rug and not on the wooden floor.
    Let’s just hope the “rug” was not a wall-to-wall carpet.

    Bad mommy! How the heck did Lizzie get a hold of THAT??? That’s stuff that belongs in the garage, and out of children’s reach.

    She’s too young to realize what she’s done wrong. What’s the matter that these things are within reach of kids!

    Oh my, you people on a rant about where the varnish was stored…it’s a COMIC strip! It didn’t really happen!

    re: cindy

    it’s supposed to be a “slice of life” comic strip. Funny, but with truth in it.

    Most Americans are trained to keep dangerous things away from little kids.

    I’ve had one of those! nice clean house, company coming, dinner roasting, kids being kids, husband keeps them out from under, but feeding them too many sweets, daughter pukes on beige carpet just before company arrives!

    Ya you’re still not getting it…slice of life means that kids get into things sometimes. I guess you explain it by saying “American’s are trained…” Do you mean North Americans? Or People from the United States? Lynn and myself are Canadians. We let kids play with varnish (hope you get the sarcasm there)

    1. (Off-point, but made me think of:) Once my dad managed to spill varnish all over the front of the fridge. Did he try to wipe it up or tell anyone about it so that it could be wiped up before it dried? Nope. Mom was really upset, but I understood exactly how he felt. (I wouldn’t have done that, though.)
    2. Not an excuse, but a reason: My youngest granddaughter , “Shiva the Destroyer,” had a breath-taking capacity for getting into things and wreaking havoc. She drew on the skills of her engineer forebears to construct ladders, and had a cat-burglar ability to climb pantry shelves. Maybe Ellie just can’t keep up with this kid, even though she takes normal precautions.

    I suspect big brother Michael had a hand in Lizzie’s acquisition of an open can of varnish.

    I disagree with Lynn’s premise about heaven. When we are there, the disadvantages of being human will no longer be a problem.
