One of them is going to have a good night’s sleep. The other one is going to have some happy memories.
Calvin actually having a wholesome moment with his mom? Is this even the same comic?!
No parent can outlast a 6 year old.I speak from experience
Remember when we played with our own mothers? Mine, unfortunately passed away last summer. T_T
Tickle me Elmo…..
Mom, you NEVER wind Calvin up for ANY reason. You ought to know that by now. He’s wound up enough already.;D
And people wonder whether Calvin’s parents love him!
that was fun!
Sweet dreams, Mom! You need ’em.
Rare to see Calvin’s parents playing with him.
Enjoy it, Calvin. It may never happen again.
I remember getting a kid too wound up to sleep once. Did it on purpose, too, having put up with the little “angel” for a week. Thought I’d let mummy deal with her darling and see how much fun it was.
Never . . . NEVER . . . try to outlast a 6 year old kid that eats Sugar Bombs.
There is NO defence against mum tickles, she knows all the spots. :D
Better call Rosalyn.
WOW……….’Calvin’s’ Mom, doing something besides yelling at him….something to see ! ! ! !
This is certainly a wonderful Calvin and Hobbes strip. It’s very good to see Mom and Calvin having fun together although it does backfire on Mom as she puts herself to sleep rather than Calvin.
Me and my cats.
Loads of quality time with the kid has taken its toll on mom. Dad did miss the bus, I guess.
Get him a hamster wheel – a BIG hamster wheel fitted with a generator.
Been there, done that – on both sides of the equation… Good times.
Everyone with kids can relate to this ♥️♥️♥️♥️
Oddly enough, that’s what happens when I play with my dogs. I’m tired and they’re hungry.
Kids get the energy from their parents. They just take it
I remember this one, still very enjoyable to see again.
Nice to see Calvin actually being a kid, instead of a junior dictator…
Nothing wrong with a little cat nap and Mom is curled just like Hobbes.
Should not have let him have that 4th bowl of Chocolate Frosted Sugar Bombs cereal as a bedtime snack.
Great moment. Normally we see Calvin’s Mom mad at him for various Calvin moments
Energy is wasted on the Young. Apologies to George Bernard Shaw.
Mom curls up the same way Hobbes does!
It’s the first time we’ve actually seen one of Calvin‘s parents positively engage with him. They only have themselves to blame for his behavior which is obviously to get their attention
We rarely get to see Calvin and his mom playing together, so this was nice.
Either way, she got a break out of it.
Thinking that mom needed to be put to bed was dad’s mistake that resulted in Calvin.
To GoComics, don’t forget that there’s still a sabbatical Sunday strip you missed one week, before the “new” comics are supposed to resume at the end of this month. But besides that, in this strip at least here they actually mean well, compared to when Calvin attempted a similar stunt in 1993… https://www.gocomics.com/calvinandhobbes/1993/04/25
This is often the way it worked out for us too. Good times.
It’s so nice to see this side of Calvin’s mom instead of always in a reactionary one.
Do people not get it? It may seem like a wholesome moment with Calvin and his mom, but the last panel proves it was all a ploy to tire Calvin out to get him to go to bed.
Anyone notice the “ack” in the first panel? Could Bill the Cat be lurking nearby?
This is as cute as C&H gets without Hobbes.
been there too. I miss the little ones. Now they’re grown and moved away. :-(
They’ve had this one before.
My mother would colour with us, but that’s the only memory I have of “Playing” with her.
Most wholesome C+H ever <3
This one is probably the best one I have ever seen! So much joy!
