    As low as she feels right now, she may be able to walk out UNDER the door (without ducking).

    I think he really wanted to ask her something else, but knew he was busted so he went for the heart. My kids have never asked me that question. They always know they’re loved.

    My step daughter used to do that. She’d wait until I was at the end of my rope with her stall techniques, and just when I was ready to blast her, she’d say “I love yoooou.” The little wiener did it on purpose.

    I did this to my mom once. Got the biggest hug of my life. I still ask this once in a while because I love the answer.

    If he has to ask, then she’s not making it clear with her actions that she does indeed love her little boy.

    My youngest is the queen of the pre-bed questions. She can go on for 15 minutes easy, you can see her thinking them up. She would TOTALLY try this. They are smart!

    Elly can be so mercurial sometimes!


    Sweet, loving wife and mother one minute . . . biggest bitch on the planet the next!


    Makes me wonder how Michael and Elizabeth grew up as well as they did! (I can’t comment on April and how she turned out because she was still just a kid when the strip ended.)

    Why do so many people seem to think she is such a bi—-? She is kind and caring to all her family and friends, even though she does get exasperated at times. Just like everyone else.
