Perhaps she could go with the flow a little more often…
Parents can be killjoys sometimes.

It’s a Halloween thing.
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.
I don’t want to think about the mess inside the front of that shirt.
Didn’t Hugh do an animation of this one? Awesome!!!
I guess Calvin hasn’t heard the latest from the CDC….blow into you’re arm Calvin!!
She knows you too well, Calvin.
Laughed ‘my head off’ with this one. Love it!
Yep, I posted that one a few days ago, but you can’t go back and get it cuz somehow I used up my 10GB bandwidth allowance Photobucket gives…good thing I have 5 different accounts, some file moves and I’m good to go.
Hugh, your animations are priceless. The one of this strip captures Calvin in his essence.
It looks so!
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
Calvin just can’t get a head.
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 know the feeling Calvin, I’ve sneezed my head off at one time or another…
Amazing how C&H is still such a high-quality product even after all these years.
Lovin’ the comments.
Moms response shows she is catching on
Calvins got to retreat and come up with something better
He will I betcha
My mom would have said “That’s nice dear’ and kept on doing what ever she was doing.
Hey “mom” play along cant ya?
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.
Another one of my favorites! LOL
