Last night right before baths, I was leading my wayward five year old down the hall. He turned his head just as I moved my hand and I inadvertently poked him in the eye.

He flinched.

I said, "I'm sorry, buddy. I hope I didn't gouge out your eyeball."

A hopeful look crossed his face as he raised his hand to check, followed by disappointment once he discovered everything was as it should be.

I was reminded of a cartoon strip I read many years ago. Calvin and Hobbes. I told my boy about it. After baths, he sat on my lap as I read to him from the book excerpts we found on Amazon.

They had him at:

Calvin and Hobbes, by Bill Watterson: Available here.

My husband and I love Calvin and Hobbes. We had the whole treasury and giggle often!

Calvin. The humor is perfect and will provide many laughs for our little guy. Thanks for the chuckle - I can see his brain working :)

I feel like these were always in your bathroom growing up...did I dream this??

You didn't dream that, Sarah. I think between Heather and my dad, we had almost all the books.

there are big fat books and giggles in their beds every night.
