Dan Says. . .

"Aren't you glad I'm not Calvin?"

I was thinking, "Calvin?  Who's Calvin?"  Then I realized that Dan has been loving reading Calvin and Hobbes comic books.  He went on to explain how naughty Calvin is when his babysitter comes.  I have read Calvin and Hobbes and enjoyed them thoroughly.  Calvin is one imaginative child!  Still, I am thankful that Dan is not Calvin.  Dan is imaginative too, and I love him just the way he is.

This particular cartoon describes how I felt this evening -- only it was my Oscar the Grouch shirt.  Even the Grouch can't help Jake and I be happy that he has piles of math to make up because he's been sick all week.  I need to help him since Derek has other duties tonight.  Somehow we both feel inadequate.  Maybe Jake and I need full fledged super suits.

*Calvin and Hobbes comics are by Bill Watterson

Have you tried rocket ship underpants! HA!!!

I feel for ya, I'm not a math person - that's my husband's department and luckily for me, 2 out of my three boys take after my husband. When the one couldn't do it, I'd refer him to his brothers if their dad was busy.

Cute cartoon!
