Thank you, Bill Watterson.

Calvin and Hobbes have been dear favorites since I was in school. Geoff and I were Calvin and Hobbes for Halloween... most dedicated, sincere interpretation we could conjure. One of us had bleached hair, cartoon yellow, for the cause. Pictures? Somewhere. I hope I can find some.

As much as I love those cartoons, I think I am enjoying, even more, seeing each of my children discover Bill Watterson's genius for themselves. One of my favorite sights in parenting life has been watching Maria, or Max, or Alex, or William curled up, or sprawled out, and deeply immersed in the world of Calvin and Hobbes. Makes me feel like everything is turning out just fine.

My very brainy, very aware, very cool and creative 14-year old niece is a big fan, too. I think she would fit right in with your family.
