    That’s how kids learn. It’s a kid thing and they just have to experiment to see what happens if I do this.

    When we get older, I hesitate to say mature, we do the same thing. Only now the things we experiment with can often cause real hurt and pain and even death.

    It’s just a matter of bigger experiments. Bigger, more expensive toys.

    The trouble with mothers? The trouble with kids is they don’t clean up after themselves.

    Oh, let the kid have some fun. Give him water – and – make him clean it up after.

    We used to make “hickies” on our arms with the vacuum cleaner.

    Her yelling is what caused him to drop it. If she’s going to yell like that, she should be prepared to catch the glass first or the mess is her own fault.

    The problem with THIS particular mother is that she doesn’t remember when she was a kid herself.

    This banter reminds me of the Non Sequitur strip of the grave yard of last words. … Hey guys, watch this! :-)

    As long as he’s also taught to not play with his food. Send him outside to do his testing with water, so he understands the difference between playing with his food and science experiments.

    If this strip were done in rhyme, would it be named ‘for better or verse’?

    Did the capillary thing too but did it at home. Felt really stupid with that red ring around my mouth.

    I got involved with an “experiment” with a large suction cup — spent the rest of the day with a perfectly circular bruise in the middle of my forehead!

    I did that once only with an empty juice glass. It took both my parents to break the vacume in the glass and free my mouth. How they found me in that predictament is something that slipped my memory banks.

    JPSteve: Was it large enough to be used as a trombone mute? waw, waw, waw. (Like adults in animated Peanut cartoons. Also useful for minor plumbing repairs.)
