why is this supposed to be funny?
Chin up, mom.
Little boys can become a big accomplishment, when they are grown up, never give up hope!!
It is indeed an accomplishment, to have a kid with such broad perspective on life :P
Give her a little bit of time,and she will be bragging to her Mom and Dad and all her friends how proud she is that Calvin out grew his trying times.
What’s on the picture over the coach?
I am feeling a Knute Rockne reference coming on.
Sounds like Calvin’s mom is about ready for the couch. Actually, she’s already on it.

The late Paul Harvey used to say, “Having children makes us all hostages to fate.” Amen
Me too!. :(
I feel for you Mom* ……….
*But I can’t reach you!!!
It IS an accomplishment keeping up with Calvin, Mom.
I have five sons and I laughed so loud I snorted!! They all turned out fine and I now have beautiful , wonderful, charming grandchildren and great grandchildren .
This is a satirical look at parents who deal with an child with an imagination on steroids, and how to deal with it in creative way. Nothing wrong with this scene
A little sprout doesn’t look much the tree it will be, it’s a long haul mom.
I’d be proud to be the mom of such a little genius like Calvin! I wanted to name my son Calvin but my husband wouldn’t let me. We settled on the boring name “Mark” and now my son is just this well behaved, boring teen. I want Calvin!!!
Don’t send this one to any of your kids. It’s funny to read, but not if your kid might think it’s a comment on him/her….
If you think he’s bad now, Mum… Wait until he’s a teenager!Then you’ll REALLY be depressed.xxx
95 years ago…
That is one of the funniest strips EVER! It’s a good thing Calvin is only a comic strip…
If your biggest accomplishment in life was Calvin, wouldn’t YOU get depressed too?
Have you ever had/raised a child? If so, can you honestly say you never experienced a moment like this? If not, your comment is biased, baseless, and inaccurate. Kids are the most wonderful things in the world- and the most trying. You never know what’s next, and coping isn’t always easy. Almost always it’s worth the effort. You get back what you give tenfold.
Nothing happy about it; remember those who have given and why they gave, and honor them and what they sacrificed to maintain our freedoms. Thank them, and God bless them, and may their gift never have been given in vain.
Wait til he’s a teenager Mom, it only gets better — lol.
@LX013: Well – too bad, in cartoons kids never grow up – and if they do, we, the readers, complain. so it’s really our fault!
She should have another baby. Calvin may still be the golden child.
