my job is done here

Last night, Cass got out of bed, came thumping downstairs and asked if he could stay up for awhile yet so he could read.

He was out of library books, so dug around in my bookcase and...



Cass now loves Calvin and Hobbes.

I'm calling this a parenting WIN.

We have ALL the books! Biggest fans ever! The Bean, in particular, identifies, as he had a stuffed animal monkey that was his companion in all sorts of hair raising adventures. He asked me one day, out of the blue, to sew him a stuffed animal. I was merely the tool, he made all the design decisions. The result was a very homely looking critter made of burgundy corduroy, with no eyes, but for years their bond was as close as C&H!

And I love the page you caught, where Calvin uses Crisco on his hair to make his school pictures look good.

You do realize that the child might just make the same snowmen that Calvin peppered the yard with, right?

And if he does, you MUST take pictures. :)

My kids loves Guns n Roses. I consider that a parenting win, too.

I agree. Get to calm down the child and make him enjoy reading--truly a parenting win.

I am a Calvin and Hobbes fan.
