Calvin and Hobbes

was not supposed to be a part of Joseph's curriculum, but last year in the States, he started reading them at my parents' house. I don't think he understood much at that time, but he was engrossed. Just a few days ago, he was given the opportunity to borrow one from friends who kindly took care of our kids while we went out on our anniversary date. All I have been hearing these days have been snippets of C&H dialogue with a lot of laughing and between, and cute mispronunciations sprinkled here and there. What to do? I really do think it's a little too early for Joseph to be able to handle Calvin as a role-model. But I can understand the pain of having tasted and then being deprived. We three sisters laughed our way through every single Bill Watterson book. Nevertheless, I'm going quietly try to return it without him realizing it. Highly unlikely. But miracles can happen. Here's a sampling of how much Joseph likes C&H:

....hmmm....why can't I upload a video? It says there was an error....

Well, here's a picture:


  1. Love C&H! So fun to see him enjoying it.
