When my kids were young like Elizabeth, they used to include their stuffed animals in the nightly routine. It was sweet seeing the world through their eyes, and I enjoyed helping them learn to share love with the “critters” they loved. I’m sure it helped them drop off to sleep happy.
Of course, they also learned that the routine could be used to delay the inevitable lights-out, and if you followed the process to a possible conclusion, dad might well forget what the primary purpose was. Not likely, though.
Thanks to Lynn for the memories and for seeing the humor in our lives, whether the events depicted in her cartoons actually happen or not. That’s what I enjoy about this strip. I feel sorry for so many who only come here to grump about others’ pleasures and steal their joys. I hope in time you will find true happiness in your own life.
